By the end of the summer, these moves will give you a body that will blow you out of the water.

1. Treading Water Intervals

Interval training, or HIIT, blasts calories with a spurt of all out energy alternated with rest. Similar to sprint intervals, next time you’re in the pool tread water as hard as you can for 30 seconds, then float to the surface and take a rest. Do this on and off 30 times over your afternoon in the water, and according to Active.com, you’ll burn 300 calories without leaving the water.
