The pool can be a place to lounge in sedentary bliss, or it can be used to kick your nearly-bare butt into serious shape. We say, do both! This 20-minute Tabata interval workout will get your muscles pumping and fat burning. Then when you're done exercising, you can float on a raft to your heart's content.

Perform each exercise for 20 seconds at full throttle, followed by 10 seconds of rest. Repeat each move like this 8 times before moving on to the next exercise. Collectively, you will spend 4 minutes (or one Tabata cycle) doing each exercise. Take 90 seconds of rest as you transition between exercises. Try incorporating this pool workout into your workout routine once or twice a week to see results.
