If you are like me, who sometimes feels obsessed with swimming and wants to try something different, but in water (obviously, I am an avid swimmer FYI). Every now and then I stop doing routine swimming and try some pool exercise.
The advantages of water have long been used for therapy after injuries. Water Aerobics is now increasingly becoming established in the wellness and fitness area, as fitness gymnastics in the water is a gentle, effective and for whole-body training.
Water Aerobics Exercise uses the physical properties of the water because the density of the water is about a thousand times greater than the density of the air. Therefore, this medium sets a clear resistance to all movements. A person’s body weight appears easier because the gravity is reduced in the water. The body under water is only about 10% of its weight. The gentle and relieving effect of water therapy on joints, ligaments, and tendons is due to this buoyancy.
Here is a list of 10 water aerobics exercise I do every now and then and urge all my colleagues and friends to do these exercise and stay fit and healthy.
