Water Aerobics Exercises : Water Aerobics Front & Back Kicks


Another great kick-boxing move we’ve taken
and brought to the pool, is the front and the back kick. Start with your guard up, and
kick forward with your right foot, and then kick back with your left foot. Kick forward
with your right, back with your left. After you’ve done about 10-12 of those, switch up.
Kick forward with your left, back with your right. Forward with your left, back with your
right. The great thing about this, is that the water provides a certain amount of buoyancy,
so you don’t have to worry about losing your balance in front of the whole class. Let’s
check it out. For kicking, make sure you start, feet shoulder width apart. You don’t want
your knees to be locked. You want your knees to be sort of soft. Start with your guard
up. Kick forward with your right foot, back with your left foot. Forward with your right
foot, back with your left foot. Now always remember when kicking, you point your toe
and extend your knee as far as it will go. Kick at a height that’s comfortable for you.
If this is as far as you’re comfortable going, don’t worry, keep working on it. After you’ve
done 10-12 reps on the right side, kick forward with your left foot, back with your right
foot. Forward with your left foot, back with your right foot. Again, go at a pace that’s
comfortable for you.
