Water Exercise Helps Joints

Water aerobic exercises and swimming allow people with joint problems and other medical conditions to get a good workout without pain and jarring. People with arthritis should do water exercises in a warm pool, while those with multiple sclerosis need cool water.

As a former Water Aerobic instructor who should be exercising in the water right now; I see no better place in life but to be exercising in the water. Water has no shock like jogging and walking. It is so comfortable, so relaxing at the end of the day to lay in a pool of water and let the peace of the water enter.

Not only do you find yourself deep within but you have a water aerobic activity plus an activity that also builds muscles.

Water is never boring. The simplest activity can be more of a challenge in the water. Try running back and forth in the water then try it on land and see which one you get the best work out with...the water or land. You will be surprised.

I would like some feedback as to locking joints (knees, elbows etc.) when doing warm water exercises. I am in a class where the instructor keeps directing us to "lock" our joints. Where can I refer her to sonde can be educated as to joint activity when exercising.
