However the desriptions of the exercises are not always kept to one page, the muscles that are used for each exercise are not mentioned except in a few rare cases and then only as a group of muscles eg upper back.
I also suggest buying what I call "Kermit Gloves" to help give you more resistance in the water. I've tried several brands of these (all sold on Amazon) and suggest the "Head" brand.
