Lay back and lift your hips up. Let your body fall back into the water and raise your hips. Relax your entire body into a straight line. Avoid bending your back or hips or letting them sink into the water.
Concentrate on your backstroke kick. Alternate kicking your legs up and down. Keep your toes pointed and your legs close together, but not touching. Kick from the hip, rather than from the knee. While one leg is up the other should be down, and vice versa.

You must use your lower body with a kick board. By moving your legs and holding your stomach muscles in tight, your stomach will also get a work out.
