Forget anything you may have seen or heard about water-based exercise!
If all you have experienced in water workouts has been of a slow paced, therapeutic nature, then get ready for a surprise!
AND you don't even have to know how to swim!
"INTENSITY WITHOUT THE IMPACT!"
Join Susan Arruda, WBFF pro, FAME PRO and 6 Time Fitness Champion as she takes you through a 45 minute water workout that will challenge even the most seasoned water nymph, using only a ball and the natural resistance of the water.
I turned to water training in my teens due to really bad knee issues.
I had to eliminate all ballistic and high impact activity for quite some time and water training enabled me to do that without sacrificing intensity!
I learned to get creative, train with intensity in the water to sculpt and burn fat, while also keeping things fun.
The fact that my knees were so bad for a period of time just motivated me to strengthen my legs and make them stronger, as well as train smarter.
Water workouts are a VERY effective way to incorporate high intensity without the high impact wear and tear on your bones and joints!
Training in the water is a commonly overlooked and under-utilized environment that can offer challenge and change to your workout regime and balance out training with variety, as well as provide an exceptional high intensity workout without the high impact stress on joints.
The liquid gym benefits are two-fold; natural resistance of the water provides a muscle toning effect while minimizing the joint impact, thanks to the buoyancy factor.
Plus, water is refreshing, especially in the warm summer months. Another bonus if you're really not a fan of heavy sweating; it's ideal for you!
Although you still do sweat during these strenuous workouts, it's not noticeable, nor felt in the same way.
The water training pay-offs are grand!
TOTAL BODY STRENGTH
💪 You'll see a boost in muscle power and strength. It also helps:
You will no doubt "wonder" why you have not considered training in the water until now, and you will feel muscles you have not felt before!
👉 CORE AND ABS 👈
Training in the water provides a safe environment to challenge and improve your balance, which simultaneously challenges and strengthens your core.
Maintaining upright vertical alignment and good exercise posture requires a consistent abdominal challenge throughout the entire training session.
Exercise movements that are not necessarily focused on the abdominals automatically recruit more core work as a result of the water resistance factor.
More conscious work and effort is required to maintain proper upright body alignment throughout water travel, as well as other more specific muscle targeted movements.
👉 TIGHT & TONED
The hydrostatic pressure of the water provides 12% more resistance than similar movements on land, resulting in a natural "liquid resistance gym" and higher workout intensities, yet lower heart rates (by about 10 beats per minute), while improving muscle tone.
👉 SYMMETRY + MUSCLE BALANCE
Training in the water forces you to work opposing muscles concentrically and eccentrically, creating a balance in strength, flexibility and muscle symmetry.
👉 INJURY PROTECTION
Beginners And Those Working Through Injury
INTERMEDIATE - ADVANCED
The most tried and true Bodybuilding Training Principles
are not only possible in the water, but they are often MORE EFFECTIVE than when executed in conventional resistance training.
Think of a popular exercise machine like a pec-deck.
You bring your arms together (#1), to execute the concentric part of the exercise/where the muscle tension rises to meet the resistance, then remains stable as the muscle shortens.
On the eccentric contraction, the muscle lengthens as the resistance becomes greater than the force the muscle is producing, and this is where the water takes it all to the next level.
When you use a pec-deck machine to return the machine pads (#2), so they are parallel to your back, you are resisting so your arms don't fall back, but in the water you have to push against the natural and dynamic resistance/buoyancy of the water.
You are essentially doing a push/pull rep in the "liquid gym" and you can vary the resistance in both directions, depending on your speed and the width of your arms position.
You can execute explosive power movements like plyometrics, while adding the natural resistance of the water to yield maximum intensity and fat burn.
The use of the ball increases the resistance factor and enables you to overload a multitude of muscle groups for ultimate sculpting and definition!
💪 MUSCLE CONFUSION TRAINING PRINCIPLE
Cross training, AKA mixing it up and adding diverse methods of training for maximum variety is so crucial in avoiding overuse injuries, but equally important, the variety piece serves to add a different training stimulus to your body and working muscles to avoid plateaus and boredom; a biggie if you’ve been training for some time!
CONTINUOUS TENSION TRAINING PRINCIPLE - It's RELENTLESS 💪
To increase the intensity, you jump higher or move faster while maintaining strict control and proper body alignment. To modify, you can slow down your movements when needed and/or take longer recovery breaks in between the exercises.
There is no having to stop in the middle of a set as you would in a gym in order to change the pin on the weight stack.
Your muscles will not get a break when you crank up the intensity or turn it down; they will constantly be working!
ANYONE CAN DO THIS WORKOUT!
Another plus with Elite Water Training is that you do not need to know how to swim, making this suitable for everyone, regardless of swimming ability, age and fitness level! For this type of training, we want to increase the resistance of the water, which is the opposite of swimming.
A Creative, Fun and Effective Workout in the water!
This is an intense workout that burns fat, while strengthening and toning your total body. If you are overweight or have joint issues, you will be able to exercise vigorously, all with minimal impact, for maximum results!
