Water workout

Try this 10-minute thigh-toning pool workout from MaryBeth Pappas Baun, author of Fantastic Water Workouts. The water’s resistance helps tone saddlebags. Plus, by doing the moves circuit style (one after another with no rest in between) you’ll pump up your heart rate too. Do this circuit three times, and do the whole workout two to three times per week in chest-level water.

Warm up and cool down with this quick move: Stand in the water with your feet shoulder-width apart and hands on your hips. Moving slowly clockwise, make eight large circles with your hips; repeat in the opposite direction—then dive into your workout.
