Muscle Groups being exercised: Hip Abductors and Adductors, anterior deltoids, and trapezius.
Water Depth: Chest High
Safety Tips: Control your movements and prevent the joints from straigtening completely. Move in synchronization with your partner.
Equipment: Hydro-Tone Boots and Bells (either big or small)
Starting Position: Legs together and hands in front of chest. Face your partner and have about 4 feet of distance between you.
Movement: "Jumping Jack" jump both feet apart while one
hand "punches" forward. Both partners will punch the right hand forward
towards their partners left shoulder. As you jump the feet together, you
bring the right hand back to the chest and "punch" the left hand forward.
The hands are now alternately punched forward as the feet jump out and
then together. When the partners move together the bells stay reasonably
close and move forward and backward as if visibly linked.
