This deep-end exercise targets your oblique. You will need a pool noodle or a floating device to support you. If performed regularly, and in combination with other oblique exercises, this exercise can be very good for losing side fat.
In the deep-end, put the noodle under your arms, lay on your back and rest your hands on the noodle. Keep your legs straight, wide open and parallel to the bottom of the pool. Point your toes.
With your legs spread out wide, raise one leg (toes pointed) up until your foot is out of water. Lean your torso toward your working leg. Put your leg down and lean back, returning to the starting position. Repeat the same with your other leg. Imagine pushing the water with both your feet. Don't perform too fast. Keep your movement controlled.
Inhale as you lean your torso back. Exhale as you lean forward.
Use your side abs to lift your legs up on both sides.
