I did all my rehab in a warm water pool, and my muscles LOVED it. The pool I am currently using is 82, and feels a bit cold when I get in. My muscles all lock down. Once I get moving I am ok, but I do tend to cramp more in the cooler water. I think 84-85 would be perfect, but still much cooler than a therapy pool

The pool I workout in us about 82. I usually take a cool shower before getting in the pool (which cools my skin) and then the water feels warm. After 90=120 minutes of aerobics, I often move into the Jacuzzi to do some stretching for improving range of motion especially for my knees.

emoticon The pool I go to is kept about 84 degrees. When I first get in the pool it feels cold, but once I get to moving i'm ok. Also I learnt that if it feels cold when you get in I just get out for a second then get back in and it feels ok. Linda from Winona, TX emoticon

The pool at my school is a little on the warmer side but I think that is due to the amount of elderly people that also use the pool. I like it a little warmer. I feel like I can get right to working out.

It's important to gauge your workout intensity to the water temperature. Water that is in the upper 80s or low 90s is great for theraputic exercise--arthritis classes, stretch, aquatic therapy, ai chi, etc. but holds a danger of heat illness for high-intensity aerobic activity. Water in the upper 70s-low 80s is great for working fast and hard, whether swimming or aerobicizing.

Most of us just have to stick a toe in at class time and figure out how we're going to work with it for the day.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Some people say they prefer the water to be almost body temperature, but I don't think I'd like that. The pool where I go for water aerobics is kept at 83 (summer & winter, & it's outdoor) & that seems to be good for me. It's a tad chilly in the winter, but I wear an overshirt and am comfortable. During the spring & fall it's chilly when I first get in, but moving around quickly warms me up. And in summer it's just right! I think you burn more calories when the water is cooler rather than warmer.

I prefer warm water---if it is cold I have to inch into it so that wastes a lot of time---I work out in a warm therapy pool and my muscles really appreciate that.

Sometimes I get cold but others just say get moving I will warm up. But one trick i've learn't if the water is to cold for me I just get out of the pool for about 15 seconds and get back in it will feel warmer to me. But I like warm water but they tell me it's not good health wise if it's to warm. 82 is what the temp is were I go for my aerobics class. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Does a little chill when you get in motivate you to work harder? Do you like the water to be warm and welcoming? What's your ideal water temp for H2O exercise?

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
