Today, let’s take a look at a 15 minute workout that you can do regardless of your swimming proficiency that will help you burn fat and lose weight. Start Your Workout Are you ready to finally get in shape? It’s time to get your swim suit out and get started. Step 1: The Warm Up Time: 2 Minutes Before you get started, take a few minute to walk a shallow area of the pool, move your arms back and forward to warm up your muscles. Step 2: Jog in Place Time: 2 Minutes Remain in the shallow end and begin to jog in place lifting your knees high as you jog. This will most likely bring your legs up and out of the water and then back in again. Continue this exercise for 2 minutes. Step 3: Tick-tock Hop Time: 2 Minutes After you finish jogging, immediately place your feet together and start jumping from side to side in the shallow part of the pool. Step 4: Squat Jump Time: 2 Minutes Squat down as low as you can go in the water without submersing your head while keeping your arms extended at shoulder height. Jump as high as you can while raising your arms over your head. Continue these jumps from 2 minutes. Step 5: Flutter Kick Time: 2 Minutes Go to an edge of the pool on the shallow end and hold on to the edge of the pool, straighten your arms out while on your belly. Start kicking your legs as if it was the first time you learned how to swim. Constantly kick your legs for two minutes as fast as you can. Step 6: Bicycle Time: 2 Minutes Turn around with your back against the side of the pool. Outstretch your arms on the edge of the pool and allow your legs to float. Begin performing a pedal motion just as you would if you were riding a bike just at the surface of the water. Bike in the water for 2 minutes while focusing on maintaining the same speed. Step 7: Crunch Time: 2 Minutes From the bicycle position, extend your legs in front of you keeping your feet together. Pull both knees into your chest and return them to the extended position. Continue this for 2 minutes focusing on the full movement in and out during the exercise. Step 8: Cool Down Time: 1 Minute Once you have completed your crunches, stop and allow your legs to move under you until you are standing again in the pool. Begin to walk around slowly while swinging your arms in the water cooling your muscles down in the process.
