Exercises for Weight Control
Water Workouts (non-weight-bearing)
Exercising in water helps you feel:
At less risk of injury.
You don’t need to know how to swim to work out in water—you can do shallow-water or deep-water exercises without swimming.
For shallow-water exercise, the water level should be between your waist and your chest. If the water is too shallow, it will be hard to move your arms underwater. If the water is deeper than chest height, it will be hard to keep your feet touching the pool bottom.
For deep-water exercise, most of your body is underwater. This means that your whole body will get a good workout. For safety and comfort, wear a foam belt or life jacket.
