Working out in the drink: Harder than it looks

The lap lanes of the public pool look a lot less intimidating than, say, Gold's Gym (except for that moment when you have to shed the cover up and actually walk on the deck to the water.) But, it is possible to get a heckuva workout session in there with a combination of water walking (forward and backward), swimming and weight lifting....
Yes, I mean weight lifting...with these Aqua Jogger dumbbells which make for a remarkably strenuous workout under the water. I did an hour today. Olympic synchronized swimming, here I come.
