What's not to love about water aerobics? You're in a pool so you can work up a sweat and still stay cool; you don't put any stress on your joints (a bonus for people with knee problems); and you can add equipment like weights and noodles to make the routine either harder or easier. Either way, you'll get a great workout that burns calories and tones the body. See some great water aerobic exercises demonstrated by Dancing with the Stars performer Aubree Marchione in these workout videos.



There's a lot of different exercises you can do to work your inner and outer thighs in water aerobics. You can use a noodle or you can do some without a noodle. With the noodle, we can do front leg lifts, side leg lifts, or back leg lifts. So we can go to the side, I would do about 12 reps, and then switch to front. And then you can also go back and do leg lifts to the back too. OK, if the noodle becomes untied, it's OK. You can do it untied as well. You can also do lunges. When you do lunges, you want your feet apart and you just want to lunge, lunge, lunge, lunge. I do these a lot for warm-ups, OK , and this works the inner thighs. OK, you can do this for about a minute and then switch up your exercise. Another thing that I do for inner thighs is toe touches, or heel touches, and this works them as well. So there's a bunch of different things you can do. You can also use the edge of the pool and do flutter kicks, so you would grab the edge of the pool, kick your feet out, and just flutter your feet. You would do that for about a minute or two minutes depending on your level, and then switch it up, make your back face the wall, rest on the wall, and kick your feet front. So that works your inner and outer thighs, all those exercises. There's plenty more, so be creative, and think about what you can do.
