Pool Workout for Non-Swimmers

 

Here is a workout you can do in the pool, even if you are NOT a swimmer, and even if all you have access to is a small apartment pool! I did not have a paddle board, so I used the top of a styrofoam cooler instead. 

 

This workout takes about 25-30mins. It is great for the front of your legs and abs!

  1. Warm up by kicking easy 4 x 25 yards (rest 10 sec. at end of the lane after each before starting the next lap)
  2. Repeat the following 3 times:
    1. Kick 25 yards easy followed by 25 yards hard (10 sec. rest)
    2. Kick 50 yards easy followed by 25 yards moderate followed by 25 yards hard (20 sec. rest)
    3. Kick 25 yards moderate followed by 25 yards hard (15 sec. rest)
  3. Kick on your back (holding the kickboard straight out overhead) 4 x 25 yards (15 sec. rest) **this really works your core
  4. Kick 4 x 25 yards very hard (sprinting effort) (30 sec. rest)
  5. Cool down by kicking easy 4 x 25 yards (10 sec. rest)
