1 Arm Sweep Progression
Core Emphasis: Stabilization through exercise
Water Depth: Armpit level or slightly lower when standing upright.
Stance: Moderate width squat position with shoulders submerged. Arms out to the sides with elbows bent, bottom of water walker pointed forward.
Action: Sweep one arm across the front of the body and back out. Repeat with the other arm. Continue alternating right/left single arm sweep motions.
Cues: Keep the feet, knees, pelvis and shoulder girdle still–NO movement from the waist. This is a stabilization exercise. You are trying to keep the core (pelvis and shoulder girdle) perfectly still while the arms sweep across the front and back creating turbulence.
