WHY EXERCISE IN THE WATER?
Exercising in the water is simply better than exercising out of the water. The water’s buoyancy allows you to do exercises that are difficult on land. Ninety percent of your body is buoyant when the water is up to your neck, so you are not hitting the floor as hard as you would on land. (No pounding or jarring.) The water’s natural resistance does not allow sudden body movements and also allows you to vary the intensity of your workout. Open your palm against the water and feel the resistance. Now turn it to the side and feel your hand slice easily through the water. Also, it is difficult to overheat in the water. The water continuously removes excess heat making exercise in the water much more comfortable than on land. And don’t forget the “fun factor”. Relax and exercise in a playful way!
