Water Exercise


Water Exercise

Water exercise (or aquatic exercise, as it's sometimes called) is gaining popularity among people of all ages. By this water exercise, you feel light as a feather, and you can move in ways that are otherwise difficult or impossible and it helps to tone your muscles and improve your circulation, breathing, and endurance. You weigh 90 percent less in water than you do on land, easing the burden on weight-bearing joints like your hips,knees, and back.That means many people who find it difficult or painful to jog or perform other kinds of weight-bearing activities are able to work out with ease in water. Water exercises take place in the shallow, end of a pool, in waist- to chest-deep water, and you can usually hold on to the side of the pool for safety and comfort.

Water exercise is excellent for people who :

Are over 50 years old.
Suffer joint pain.
Have weak leg muscles or back problems.

If any of these descriptions fit you, you might want to consider water exercise.
