Water aerobic exercise is a popular form of fitness that can be done by anyone regardless of age or fitness level. Water aerobic activity can be conducted during the summer months when the weather is perfect for your outdoor pool or year round in the comfort of a heated pool at the gym. Water aerobic exercise can provide a vigorous cardiovascular workout without the harsh and damaging impact of running on pavement or concrete.
Water and the body's buoyancy provide resistance during training and also buffer and protect the body while providing a low-impact exercise. In order to maximize the benefits of water aerobics, several varieties of water aerobic equipment can be used in addition to regular swimming or walking.
Aqua dumbbells which are made of foam are one of the most popular pieces of water aerobics equipment which help strengthen and tone the upper body. Aqua dumbbells can be held in each hand while swimming laps to provide increased resistance. Another popular piece of water aerobic equipment is the paddle or kick board. Kick boards can be used to stabilize the upper body while exercising your lower body.
Using the kick board as part of your water aerobic routine can help increase cardiovascular health in much the same way that running does without the discomfort on your feet and knees. Lastly, various belts for water aerobic exercise can add extra buoyancy to help keep your body suspended in the water. This helps keep your lower body and legs free to perform various exercises such as kicking, jumping or running through the water.
