If you think water exercise is just for grannies in flowered bathing caps, you haven't tried this workout yet! The Burdenko Method
, developed by Dr. Igor Burdenko, combines specific, core-centric exercises (performed both on land and in the water) to help develop balance, coordination, flexibility, endurance, speed, and strength.
Used by everyone from world-class Olympic athletes to professional ballerinas to both improve performance and for rehabilitation, this unique training method focuses on developing a balanced body (all exercises are performed both forwards and backwards) and incorporates the natural resistance of the water to build core strength, range of motion, and flexibility.
