The start of something extraordinary

Tumble Turns

For faster and more efficient turns use your core not your hands. First, get a noodle, stand in the shallow and grab the noodle at both ends. Take a breath ready to breathe out through your nose. Push off the bottom of the pool, and flip inside the noodle. Keep hold of the noodle and try not to press down with your hands. After your flip, stand straight up and try it again. Try and do it quicker and faster each time.
