is exercising in the water better than exercising out of the water?
This water property allows people to do exercises that are difficult on land. Ninety percent (90%) of your body is buoyant when in the water up to your neck,
so you are not hitting the floor as hard as you would on land. No pounding
or jarring! In the water it is a very light touch!
There is a continual resistance to every move you make: The water offers
12-14 times more resistance than when you exercise on land. Resistance does
not allow for sudden body movements.
Effects: Water disperses heat more efficiently, so there is less
chance of overheating. The water continuously cools the body. Exercise
in the water is cooler and more conformable than it is on land.
