Holiday Hurdle #2: The Kids Love the Pool, But You’re Not Much Of A Swimmer.

Aqua jog. Yes, you read that correctly. Aqua jog. For 30 minutes.

Pushing against water’s resistance can eliminate inefficient movement, which can improve your form on land.

Plus, it’s a great cardiovascular workout. Wear a floatation belt to keep you upright in the deep end.

Let your legs move as you would on land. If there’s no belt available, do the same movement in shallower waters.

Bonus: the kids will probably love it … and join you … and hang on you. Adding lots of extra resistance!
