Fumbling about.
Workday mornings I do Shovelglove
(it is very efficient).

Look it up if you want.​

I spend half an hour walking in the Kroc Center's Lazy River - Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday - currently.

⬅ There is a current.

The depth is 3 ft 6 inches.

I walk in all sorts of ways - regular, walking lunges, sideways, backwards, etc. - so my legs are toast by the end of the walk.​
The Kroc Center's pool is mostly fairly shallow, but there's a deep end. Also, two lap lanes (not pictured). Sometimes I swim laps.

The Lazy River is on the backside left from this vantage point. ➡

I walk with and/or against the current.

With the current is "easier" but perhaps more effective. Counterintuitive? Yes.

Sometimes there are fountains and waterfalls and such to interfere with my pleasure and chill me. When they're turned off I'm happier, so I show up when they're off.​
Generally I end up in the hot tub after the Lazy River. Here the jets are off.

To the degree I can I go when there're very few other people there, which is most of the time.

The Kroc Center is rarely busy or crowded.​

I like my currently workouts and find them pretty effective. The more I do them the better I feel. Ultimately maybe I'll get in better shape, but all I can do is what I can towards that end.

Happy shaves,

Jim
