This 30 minutes deep-end routine targets your overall body muscles. You will need a noodle or any floating device to support your body in the deep-end. It works by combining: Cross Country Skiing, Arms and Legs Adduction-Abduction and Criss-Cross Reach, in addition to shallow-end warm up exercises. The aim is to engage as many muscle groups as possible and to improve coordination.
Warm Up (5 min): start by jogging on the spot for 1 minute. Followed by 45 seconds Jump Jacks and then another 45 seconds of Jump Jacks with Front and Down Arm Close. Then perform Cross-Country Skiing for 45 seconds without twisting and then 45 seconds with hand twisting. Finish your warm-up with one minute Criss-Cross Reach.
Put the noodle between your legs (or use a floating belt or any other floating device) and start by jogging around in circles in the deep-end for 2 minutes.
