(Video) Fun Pool Cross-Training For Runners

Cross-Training For Runners Builds Core Strength ~

Summer or winter, cross-training in the pool is a fun and welcome way to break up your running routine and build overall strength and fitness.

Olympic Gold Medalist (7 times!) Amanda Beard Brown takes us through these simple but powerful pool exercises used by Olympic athletes to build muscle, agility and fitness.

Amanda shows us some interesting moves we’ve never seen and can’t wait to try.  It’s a great, challenging workout while still having some fun in the sun.

We have the perfect excuse now to hit the pool for a few hours!

Many thanks to Self Magazine for the excellent tips!
