Produced using unique technology and extensive research, Melt Water is the result of years of development. The production process mimics the natural formation and melting of glaciers and involves a complex multi-stage freezing, extracting and melting process.

Technology

Melt Water is a result of freezing, extracting and melting. As ice crystals start to form during freezing, they naturally push away all impurities and admixtures. The water that doesn’t freeze, due to impurities, is removed using special technology. At the final stage of production, the final layer of ice is melted back into water giving it the unique icy taste.

Melt Water benefits

  1. One of the world’s purest forms of water.
  2. Produced using unique technology.
  3. Sold in environmentally friendly bottles, made from 20% recycled materials.
  4. Rated as highest quality by the British Retail Consortium

During exercise, it’s vital to stay hydrated and ice cool Melt Water is a favourite of fitness lover Luke Morris who has teamed up with Melt Water to talk us through upper body exercises, that’ll keep you on top of your core strength, which is vitally important.

UPPER BODY EXERCISES

In the third of a series of exclusive clips, Morris demonstrates simple moves you can do, at home or in the gym, to build your upper body strength.

BENCH DIPS

This exercise transforms the back of your arms into toned muscles by using just your own body weight and has sculpting benefits for your triceps. Stretch your legs out straight and hold onto the edge of a bench (or any surface around knee-height) with both hands. Bend at the elbows to dip, then repeat.

INCLINED PUSH UPS

This exercise works your lower chest and back more than a standard push up thanks to the angle you’re positioned in. Incline push-ups (along with classic push-ups and decline push-ups) increase blood flow to the upper body, helping to decrease post exercise soreness. Take up the regular push up position but with both legs raised on a bench, and push your body weight with both arms.

DUMBBELL HAMMER CURLS

This is great for your biceps, and crucially hammer curls help build the brachialis and brachioradialis muscles in a way other curls do not, allowing you to develop additional strength and size. The palms of the hands should be facing your torso, then exhale and curl the weight forward while contracting the biceps. Continue to lift the weight until your biceps are fully contracted and the dumbbell is at shoulder level.
