The Pitta Summer Workout
01/09/2010 | 12:00 AM
Increasing temps can tempt us to abandon our aerobic regimen and take up a lower-key routine. Instead of foregoing aerobics entirely, we encourage Pita body-mind types to simply relocate their cardio activity from land (i.e. the gym) to water (i.e. the pool). Simple exercises like jumping jacks, arm- and knee-bends and in-place jogging or walking offer an expanded range of benefits when done in 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 a water workout 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 positive effects for days to come.
