Let's try to swimmer together. Now this is a great core body exercise and you don't have to get into water. Come on down to your mat, lying on your abs all the way down and you are going to extend your legs out and your arms out. Now you want your nose pointing in the water because your neck is relaxed and we are going to lift our arms and our legs. Now while we swim, you are going to flutter, don't worry about slow or fast here, it's just about rhythmic motion. Couple of things I want you to remember, imagine balancing something right on your back, you feel all your back extensors working. Also I want you to flutter from your hip, and your shoulder, not your elbows and your knees. So lengthen everything out, breathe freely, and flutter, contralateral movement here, just one arm, one leg. How fast or slow you go is up to you. Lift up, you're going to feel it through your back, right there. Keep going and relax. That's a great full core body workout!
