Water Move 3: Russian Kick
Works: hips, thighs (Bonus: core)
A. Stand in water that’s level with breasts. Cross arms over chest. Tighten abs and bend knees as if sitting down onto a chair.
B. Bend left leg in front to 90 degrees, knee level with hip. Straighten left leg as if kicking a ball; avoid hyper-extending knee.
C. Return to starting position; alternate between sides. Perform 24 to 40 reps total.
Tip: If you are a strong swimmer, exercise in water where your feet can’t touch the bottom.
