Whether you are looking to widdle your middle or just get stronger, the pool is an excellent place to start or supplement with your regular gym workouts.
For starters, freestyle swimming is so good for you. It not only shreds calories, it is a fantastic cardio workout, works almost every muscle of your body and effectively tones your mid section. I recommend combining freestyle laps with several ab focused water exercises.
I've created a PDF chart with 13 abdominal exercises that can be done in the water. Some use equipment, some do not. And some can be done with our without equipment. There are lots of options to choose from. Check out the document and feel free to print it or share with your friends.
You can also check out my video demonstrating these moves. Grab your suit and a towel and head for the pool. I promise you're going to feel great!
