Flutter Intervals

This is an Aquatic pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 8067)

This is a great move in the deep water. You can do it with noodles, or water bells or with nothing at all. With legs hanging straight down, you do a nice, tight flutter kick. Cue the class to squeeze their abs and glutes tight. Tell them that the flutter movement should begin way up in their glutes and thighs, but keep the movement small and tight.

I like to do intervals of 10 seconds. Start with a regular flutter kick for 10 seconds. Then cue "Power Up!" and increase the intensity of the flutter kick for 10 seconds. Class members should try to get their shoulders and chest out of the water.

When that interval is done, cue "Power Down" and continue at the regular flutter interval for 10 more seconds.

You can do these intervals for as long as you want, depending on the level of class you're teaching. Start with one minute and move up from there.
