Want to lose weight without breaking a sweat? Hop in the pool! This fun water workout burns mega calories and tones every trouble spot.
Targets: Shoulders, back, triceps, and abs
- Holding beach ball with arms stretched straight in front of you, float facedown in chest-deep water so legs are extended behind you, feet together.
- Keeping arms straight, pull ball underneath you, drawing it as fast as you can through water toward thighs in an arc. (As the ball is pressed underneath, it will lift you out of water to take a breath; beginners can keep head above water throughout.)
- When ball reaches thighs, bend elbows to bring it back to surface and press it forward to return to start position. Continue for 30 seconds.
Tip: Keep your arms as straight as possible and your body straight and stiff to get the most muscle sculpting.
