Cardiovascular Disease & Kapha Exercises - Go For a Jog, In the Pool!
01/07/2010 | 12:00 AM
Though cardio activity is a must for Kapha body types, heat and humidity make it difficult (sometimes even dangerous) to follow through on a strenuous aerobic routine. To get around this tricky inevitability, we suggest moving your workout to the pool. Try an underwater jog for 10 to 15 minutes, three times a week. You'll enjoy the same body, heart and general health benefits of a land-based jog, without experiencing heat exhaustion. Jogging in water is effective not only because it cools you off as you work out, but also because the water provides resistance to protect your muscles from strain or injury. First try aqua jogging in shallow water. When you feel ready to advance, move into deeper water. Your ultimate goal should be to jog in place underwater - without letting your feet touch the ground.
