ROUTINES FOR THE PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED
If you have arthritis or fibromyalgia, deep-water exercise routines can help reduce pain and stiffness in your muscles and joints and generally improve your ability to move pain-free while not in the water. A study published in the “Journal of Aging and Physical Ability” examined senior citizens who participated in 30 minutes of deep-water running twice a week for 12 weeks. Deepwater running was more helpful for improving the balance abilities of older adults than shallow-water exercises.
Deep-water exercise routines are appropriate for both healthy and physically challenged people. The deeper your body is in water, the less weight will be placed on your lower extremities. You can achieve and maintain an aerobic level of activity during deep-water exercise, elevating your heart rate to increase the amount of oxygen that reaches your lungs. You should participate in aerobic activity at least three times a week.
