Cardiovascular Disease & Kapha Exercises: Aqua Aerobics
12/30/2009 | 12:00 AM
Increasing temps can tempt us to abandon our aerobic regimen and take up a lower-key routine in its place. Instead of foregoing aerobics entirely, we encourage Kapha body-mind types to simply relocate their aerobic and cardio activity from land (i.e. the gym) to water (i.e. the pool). Simple aerobics like jumping jacks, arm- and knee-bends and in-place jogging or walking offer an expanded range of benefits when carried out under water. The water provides a built-in resistance that really works your muscle groups. And working out in water up to your shoulders can prevent heat-related injuries that stem from exhaustion and dehydration. Think working out under water sounds a bit too much like kid's play? Hit your local pool and try a fifteen-minute power walk in neck-deep water. You'll feel the effects of that fast work out for days to come.
