In this segment we're going to start off right where we left off from our high knee kicks and just reverse it and do kind of a kick back where you're actually going to kick your butt. It's going to work, you're still going to be doing a core muscle workout but this time it's not much of a crunch. This time we're actually going to just be working on focusing to keep that tight the entire time. As well as we're in here in the pool, we're going to be kicking your feet backwards. You're going to be squeezing and isolating your hamstring muscle, flex that foot. In the high knee, knees are coming all the way up and the kick backs just reverse it. Go all the way back. We're going to be running back and forth across the pool from one end to the other. You could choose how long you want to do this exercise, however exerted or nonexerted you feel. Most of the time you want to hit each wall about two times; would be a good average estimate. You're going to continue on, feel that cardio pump and really work on isolation. That's the point in here because the water is doing so much force, we don't need any equipment. The water is working to push against our calve muscles to create workout all throughout the legs, the abs, the arms, and cardio all at once without any equipment.
