Fitness coach Heidi Lindahl takes care of your concerns
FITNESS COACH HEIDI LINDAHL ON BOOSTING BONE DENSITY AND STRENGTH, WHY YOU SHOULD USE A SWISS BALL AND HOW TO GET KILLER CALVES I enjoy going to aqua aerobics four times a week over summer. Is this
enough exercise to keep me fit?
A Water aerobics is a fun and social way to increase muscle tone and your cardiovascular system. If you have arthritis or other joint conditions, it’s a great alternative to land-based activity by providing a buoyant low-impact environment to work through specific movements without exacerbating any joint problems too. However, it is this same reason that it is inferior to other activities where you are bearing your own body weight, as moving while bearing your body weight is more challenging for the body, resulting in much faster improvements in strength and bone density. I recommend dropping one aqua class for a resistance
activity, a hard bush walk or even yoga classes.
