FREE WATER AEROBICS EXERCISES: How to Water Run

 


How to Water Run   (aka Deep Water Running, Aqua Jogging)
All WaterGym® water aerobic workouts begin with a few minutes of water running to warm up. Later in the aerobic phase, we incorporate running sprints and drills for cardiovascular conditioning and calorie burning.

Our bodies crave this native fitness move. And most everyone can run in the water even if we're unable to run on land. Great bonus! Studies have shown that water running can burn the same amount of calories as land based running if performed at the same cadence.
 
Make sure to:
  • Stay verticle.
  • Keep abdominal muscles pulled in and engaged to stabilize core.
  • Propel forward from your center of gravity (hips) not center of buoyancy (chest)
  • March knees straight up to the chest, while opposite leg stretches fully down.
  • Swing arms in opposition to the legs.
