Cardio Night (shallow water)

This is an Aquatic pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 13329)

This is a shallow water routine for an hour long high intensity water aerobics class. My class loved it last night, and enjoyed (and groaned) about a full hour of cardio without toning. It was a change of pace since we usually include leg and/or arm toning in between cardio sections.

Remind the class:
Shoulders down and back
Keep your chest lifted
Don't run on your calves. Land on your entire foot.

Section One - Stretch and Warm-Up (5-10 minutes depending on your class)

I include some active stretching (time to be determined) based on class make-up.

Section Two - Cardio Blocks (30 minutes)

For each "block" build-up to the more intense move. If you have individuals who don't like jumping up, tell them to stay at the lower intensity move.

Jog in place (take heart rate and adjust level based on reading)

Section Three - Low Intensity Cardio with Equipment (10 minutes)

(Noodle "Athletics") - use the last part of this section as a cool-down

Section Four (optional based on time) - Abs (5 minutes)

Section Five - Stretch (5-10 minutes)

(Noodle - Hold onto side of pool)

Thanks for all of the great ideas! I've used the site so many times for classes. Some of this was put together with turnstep stuff.
