Interval aqua

This is an Aquatic pattern from (pattern 13519)

Hello! I am so thankful to all of you who email with positive success! Here's to hoping you may enjoy another interesting workout!

The concept here is just to give them something different yet beneficial...we do it in 'land' classes, so why not here in the pool??

Start your class in an easy jog, I like mid-tempo music because it makes slowing down and speeding up easier to keep a beat.

Block 1

Block 2: Jumps


(If you hand bouys, you might use them now)

Block 3: Resistance (not to the water!)

Stand in water, feet apart and do waist turns with hand bouys (good recovery move, they are still working a little in the meantime) 1 minute

Reverse push-ups: Suspend (body forward, facing the water) with weights under the water, arms straight to start. Push down w/ both weights to simulate the reverse pushup 1 minute

Hold hand bouys out to the side, lift right leg to hip (or knee) level (like kick boxing) and kick right leg (bending the knee) for 30 seconds and then switch to the left leg for 30 seconds

I like to finish with a little 'corrie'-ogrophy, just pick your favorite moves and combine them into a little something! I like this one:

I do 16 of each for 1 set, 8 of each for 1 set, 4 of each for 2 sets, and 2 of each for 4 sets...Be creative! I make them say "knee, knee, kick, kick, kick back, ski ski..." to get them thinking and breathing!

Hope you like it! Please email me with any questions/ comments.

Happy teaching!
