Deep H20

This is an Aquatic pattern from (pattern 8605)

Hi there! Just wanted to throw some of my favorite deep water sets for everyone to check out. I haven't been at this long, so I am doing a lot of trial and error as to what works and what doesn't.

My classes are high intensity, lots of intervals, and I make the patrons sweat- no excuses!

I just wanted to throw a little sample of a couple of my sets in- I know as well as anybody that every new idea helps!

SET #1

Vertical flutter kick intervals:
Have your class spread out and assume a nice straight vertical position, and begin flutter kicking. Make sure they aren't cheating by letting their butt hang back as they kick.

Repeat that set SIX times....if you have a very fit class, raise the interval time to 20 seconds, and increase the rest time to match it. They will be exhausted by the last one!

Set #2

Reverse tug-of war:
Have participants get into partners. Have them go back to back, legs straight out in front of them. (legs parallel with the water's surface)

Again, you can adjust the work and rest times depending on the fitness level of your class.

Repeat THREE times- this is a great one to end your cardio portion with- it gets the class laughing, and the go home still smiling

Thanks for the ideas so far- keep them coming. Anyone with questions, or just anything to share, feel free to email me!
