Water Move 1: Cross-Country Ski
Works: hips, thighs, butt (Bonus: shoulders, core)
A. Stand in chest-deep water or float vertically in deeper water.
B. Tighten abs. Begin with legs together, then jump up and “scissor” legs, landing with left leg bent in front at 90 degrees, with knee over ankle. Right leg is extended straight behind (right heel may lift). At the same time, extend right arm in front and left arm behind.
C. Jump from leg to leg and swing arms as if cross-country skiing (but remain in one spot). Do 24 to 40 reps total.
Tip: Wear water shoes for better traction and to protect your feet in lakes and the ocean.
