Water Walking for Fast Fitness
There’s good reason why walking is one of the most recommended forms of exercise. It’s an easy, safe and effective way to increase aerobic fitness, endurance and muscle strength, one that requires no equipment and can be done almost anywhere … including the backyard pool.
In fact, walking in the water may be more effective than a similar trek on land. All factors being equal, walking one mile in the water provides a workout similar to walking two miles on land, burning up to twice the calories in the same amount of time. And the body’s buoyancy in water reduces impact on joints and provides a lower risk of injury.
