Water Aerobics Fitness Workout

Water Aerobics Workout

High Resistance Activity

You don’t need to know how to swim to try water aerobics. As long as you are comfortable in water up to your chest, this is a suitable exercise to burn calories. Water aerobics is easy on the joints and high in resistance because moving our limbs through water is 12 times harder than out of water. Because of the reduced impact in water, moves can be executed that you might not be able to do out of water.

How Many Calories Does Water Aerobics Burn?

30 minutes of water aerobic exercise burns about 200-250 calories. [This is based on a 150-pound woman. If you weigh more, you’ll burn extra calories; if you weigh less, you’ll burn fewer calories.]

How Does Water Aerobics Help Weight Loss?

Water aerobic activity burns calories just as well as out-of-water aerobics, but without the added stress on the joints. This makes it particularly suitable for obese people or people who have large amounts of weight to lose. The effect of moving through water provides resistance which tones our whole body. In particular abdominal, back and leg muscles will be worked.

How Often Should I Workout For Optimum Weight Loss?

Beginner
Target heart rate 60 to 65 per cent, 2 or 3 times a week.

Medium
Target heart rate 65 to 75 per cent, 3 or 4 times a week.

Advanced
Target heart rate 75 to 90 per cent, 4 or 5 times a week.

How To Start

Sign up for a class at your local swimming pool. According to the American Council on Exercise, a good class should include a warm-up, a gradual intensifying aerobics section, muscle conditioning exercises and a cool down consisting of flexibility exercises.
