Kicking your legs in the pool is a great way to tone your muscles. Adding a rotation movement to your leg kicks not only involves more muscles, but also improves your hip mobility.
This exercise is beneficial to all fitness levels and adds a bit of variety to the traditional flutter kicks. You will need a floating device which can be a noodle or a floating belt.
Lay on your back with your feet together and arms at your sides. Flex your feet and keep your legs straight, slightly below parallel.
Perform fast flutter kicks but with your feet flexed. That is to prevent your body from moving backward. Make sure to apply equal force as you kick your legs up and down. As you kick your legs, slowly rotate your body side to side while keeping your chin above the water. Move your arms freely to stay balanced. Rotate your hips slowly and focus on fast kicks.
If you are having difficulties staying balanced use Aqua Dumbbells
Kick your legs twice as you inhale and twice as you exhale
