Water Exercise, as we have said many times, is a great way to increase muscle strength and body flexibility, but also to get in shape and lose fat. Thanks to water, that, by exerting a resistance approximately 12 times greater than that of air, permits you to burn tons of calories, in a more refreshing training environment and, above all, in a way that makes us feel less burden and fatigue.
In fact, thanks to the up-thrust and the buoyancy of water – combined with a water exercises protocol specifically developed – you can get an invigorating low impact workout. Precisely for this reason, water aerobics exercise routines can be a particularly suitable training alternative for older people, pregnant women, for those who need to recover from an injury, and for those suffering from back problems or arthritis.
