Scissor Arms

This is an Aquatic pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 16881)

I have created this arm movement for the water based on a typical water movement for your legs, kicking. Stand with your feet slightly wider than your hips with feet turned out towards the side. Extend arms straight out at shoulder height with palms down, shoulders must be under the water to receive the full benefit of this exercise. For a normal pattern flutter kick arms up and down, to increase the intensity increase the range of motion. Lower one arm, with the goal of touching the same side inner thigh with your hand with the other arm maintains a straight position forward from the shoulder. Alternate each arm. For a more challenging arm workout change to palms facing up using the same movement. I like to do:

First set : Arm scissors palms down, normal pace/ small scissors : 30- 60 seconds. Then increase to fast pace/ large scissors for 30 - 60 seconds.

Second set : Arm scissors palms up, normal pace : 30-60 seconds, then increase to fast/ large scissors for 30-60 seconds.

You will feel this in your shoulders, biceps, triceps, back, and if you want to firm up those abs, make sure your feet stay firmly planted on the ground in water depth at armpit height.

Enjoy the burn !!! Have fun.
