I agree with you here...I do Water aerobics m,w, f then on tues & thurs. I do HIIT on the elliptical and cross train with weights. I love the water aerobics because it makes my workouts sustainable. I also mix it up every now and then with Leslie Sansones 3 mile Walk DVD.

I agree with the recommendation to H2Owear! I especially like their zip-front long-sleeve water jackets if the water is chilly.

Speedo "Endurance" suits are also chlorine resistant. I've been trying suits from thefinals.com lately and so far they wear very well, too. I like their clearance prices for multiple suits and their size charts are comparable with Speedo. Some other swimsuit brands are cut slimmer and don't work well for me.

it's there. if you search water its the first choice, if you use the old pop - up menu , its listed under other exercises. they have water aerobics, water jogging, water volleyball, and swimming. i take a water fitness class, and enter it as water aerobics. I figure its the closest.

Question: I'm not sure if there is a post here about this but I was wondering what you choose here on sparkpeople as your fitness list if swimnastics at the YMCA? I don't see any water aerobics on the list for fitness here.

There's an older thread about what people do when they can't get to the pool www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo
ard_thread.asp?board=0x2769x43855390

My pool's closed, too, this week and I'm working out on my own at a different health club pool on a day pass plus trying to do more walking.

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

Q. Our YMCA closed the pool for repairs to the building & pool, and it looks like it will be closed for another 3weeks, Any suggestions on exercises outside the pool? so i don't lose the good progress i've made so far?

I tried hiring one of the Personal Trainers, but dang i am sooo sore, i am not sure i 'll last 3 more weeks with her.

I don't think there is a 100% solution to this besides keeping your head out of the water emoticon
Various people I know have various methods that they swear by. One is to wet your hair in the shower before you put on the cap. Less pool water soaks your hair because the tap water is already there.
There are chlorine-neutralizing shampoos and conditioners you can buy. One lady I know combines these two by combing a small amount of anti-chlorine conditioner into her hair before she puts the cap on. She says she has to be careful not to use too much lest the hair get so slippery the cap pops off! But her hair does look great.

The only solution I know of is to buy a suit made of a fabric that is chlorine resistant. They are not necessarily high fashion and can be more expensive, but on a per-wear basis, I find them well worth the price. H2Owear guarantees their suits for a year, and I know from experience they last longer than that. www.h2owear.com/Mens/products/475/1/0 Speedo has chlorine-resistant lines, as does an Australian company, Coolibar. Google can probably find you more.

Thanks! I ended up doing some gardening & land exercise. It was OK but not as effective as our H2O aerobics. Trusting the pool will be back to 86F 9.3.11 & I'm on for H20 Yoga & H2O aerobics.
Have a good & safe long weekend!!

If less than 86 degrees is wrong for you, then you're better out of the water. Hard to recommend specific alternatives long distance, but ALL of us need to have an alternative when "our" pool is closed. Pools close down for maintenance, swim meets, holidays, all sorts of reasons. (TWO of mine are closed right now!) We need to have some kind of exercise alternative in our back pockets for such occasions, whether it's an alternative pool or alternative exercise such as a land arthritis class, a video to do at home (or with classmates?), a good location for a walk, or ...??? In fact, I think this sounds like a good new discussion thread!

I'm out of the pool for the day. A water pipe burst yesterday & while they have it open now, the temp is at 85F. I find that if the water is 86 or below "Arthur" (as in arthritis!) shows up & the detriment seems to outweigh the exercise benefit. I'm a chronic pain patient due to congenital, non-surgical back issues so 1) I can usually work to moderate my pain 2) miss the pools "anti-gravity" benefit for both the arthritis & spine issues.
Any thoughts on this? Any resolution(s)?

I never realized that it was 1 mile. That is a great thing to know. I just always put everything under Water Aerobics.

There's often a quandry about how to track strength & cardio exercise in the water, as a lot of water aerobics stuff is both. Track in a way that makes sense to you and rejoice in the fact that when you exercise in the water, you are frequently getting a "twofer'. For more on this subject, there's a "Track Strength Moves" thread under Team Challenge Forum. Enjoy your workouts!

I have been taking advantage of some time off and have spent lots of time in the pool; in 2 days 180 minutes! My question is how to track the strength training I do. Specifically the arm exercises. Should I track that part of my workout in the strength training part and not the cardiac section?

If I can dream it I can do it.

Great idea with the knock off Crocks, going to get myself a pair. The flip flops really bother my toes. And I don't wear anything in the water.

Suggestion: I use the knock off CROC shoes (with holes) as my water shoes. They last forever and the bottoms do not slide on the bottom of the pool. The also drive very quickly.

I've worn water shoes for years. Some sports stores and lots of discount(during season) carry them or ordered online during the off season. You do need to read about the bottoms for the right surfaces. I like rubber bottoms.

I'll bike at least every other week, for now--hopefully a bit more often, actually--and go back to walking when my knees are feeling all better. :)

Water resistance, as I never tire of saying, is 12 times the resistance of air, which means every move you do in water in every direction pushes against that resistance. You can alter that by using various devices that cause buoyancy or drag to increase resistance in one or more directions. Without thinking about it very much (or at all) you can get a pretty evenly balanced strength workout by moving in water.---BUT---
We live on land; our everyday movement is with and against gravity, so, yes, it's a good idea to do some of your exercise on land whether cardio or strength for the sake of functional fitness.
For the sake of variety and cross-training, I would say change things up. Do lap swimming some days, lift weights or use weight machines or whatever on other days. Maybe try a Group Power class. The most important aspect is variety (to hold your interest) and crosstraining (to keep your physical development balanced). Contracting muscles maintains their mass; not contracting them over time makes them lose mass. How you do that is up to you.
Personally, I do most of my formal exercise in the water, although there is a land component when I teach and demonstrate on deck. Informally, I walk as much as I can and keep some funny rock dumbbells by my desk that I hoist around when the computer is slow or the phone conversation is long.
P.S. Lap swimming is great for cardio.

So all of these SparkPeople articles about how you need to do strength training or else risk losing muscle mass (and its accompanying calorie burning properties) have totally sold me. I am convinced it's important to do some kind of strength training!

But I'm wondering... My water aerobics class does a good combination of strength and cardio work--a bit of both, every session, 3 sessions a week, for an hour per session (counting warm-up and stretching). I'm thinking of adding in lap swimming for two more days, in addition to this. Do you think this plan will prevent me from losing muscle mass? (I'm not precisely buff, now.) Or do I really need to add in some dedicated strength time, on land, as well?

Along those lines, I'd be really interested to know what other exercises any of you do, besides water aerobics!

Thanks!!

Here's the most useful choreography library because it's searchable by water depth, equipment, etc.
www.hydrofit.com/home/hyf/smartlist_40/cho
reography_library.html

This web site exists to sell you exercise programs and disks, but they have a free sample page that you could get ideas from www.waterwellnessworkouts.com/sample.asp
(In my professional opinion, some of their exercises are no longer considered advisable for injury potential in the general population, so caveat emptor and if it doesn't feel right or makes joints sore afterwards don't do it.)
This instructor site has a huge number of handouts in downloadable pdf form, the large majority of which are workout choreography ideas, but also other good exercise and water exercise information.www.calainc.org/Handouts/handouts.htm
And finally, you can go to You Tube www.youtube.com/ and search on "water exercise" or "aqua aerobics" for tons of video clips to give you ideas of stuff to do in the water. (caveat emptor here as well. You don't have to be a trained instructor to put up a video.)
Take care, and have fun!emoticon

Thanks for the advice, WP! I asked someone in my class, who got her [very nice] water shoes at Lands End, and she said Sports Authority had some cheap pairs. I don't need anything crazy awesome, yet, so I'm heading that way tonight.

Band-aids were, as I expected, totally useless this morning. But my toes had a full day (almost two!) to heal, so I didn't feel unsafe getting in the water or anything. It was actually a good reminder, because I'm *awful* at remembering to step with my whole food/touch my heel to the floor, rather than using my toes/ball of the foot.

You've stumbled (excuse the expression) on one of the reasons for wearing shoes for shallow water aerobics. This can cause serious trouble for diabetics and others with foot problems. Going back in the water with any kind of open wound makes you more vulnerable to infection, too.
Water shoes need not be fancy or expensive. They can be "reef shoes" (often great bargains are to be had this time of year at discount stores), water sandals (preferably with toe protection), old or new clean sneakers. Lands End has a moderately priced line that a lot of people like and you can get them at Sears as well as online. In addition to protecting your toes from injury and disease (plantar warts, anyone?), shoes give you traction on the pool floor and greater drag resistance with foot movement that can add intensity to your workout.
Hope you can resolve this to your satisfaction and get back to the water!

Hey, folks! This is going to sound ridiculous, but when I did my first water aerobics session on Wednesday (LOVE IT, btw!), I scraped up both of my big toes on the bottom of the pool, really badly. I've had band-aids around them for the past couple of days, trying to keep them from hurting.

Thoughts on something I can wrap my toes with, when I go back to the pool tomorrow? "Water-proof" band-aids strike me as doomed to fail.

Long term, obviously, I'm going to try to do fewer things with my toes on the floor of the pool, so this doesn't always happen, but if there are quick fixes for tomorrow, that would be awesome.

Thanks!

You've already got the word--ease. Listen to your body very closely as you get going again. You will be back up to your previous "normal" quicker by taking it in easy stages than if you go in gangbusters and get injured and have to lay off to recover. If you're feeling tired, your workout's done. If something's feeling sore, your workout's done. Just challenge yourself a little each day and enjoy your progress. It takes on average about half the time to regain a stage of fitness after a layoff than it did to achieve it from ground zero in the first place. Good luck and enjoy the water!emoticon

Hi; I have been unable to go back to the pool for the last month. I will be starting again in April, about 2 weeks from today. Do you have any suggestions on how I should ease into my routine. I don't want to hurt any body parts.
Thanks
Lou

UVUZZ4--What you do partly depends on what you need (and don't need) from the workout. If you want to avoid lower body impact, keep the belt and use the barbells. Best working water depth is mid-chest, so keep those knees bent and get as wet as possible. My advice is to warm up and do some of your workout without the bells, though, as the constant buoyancy pressure on shoulders, etc can cause trouble. There's a great choreography resource online at www.hydrofit.com/home/hyf/smartlist_40/cho
reography_library.html
and it includes moves for barbells. You could also get a dvd or two for ideas and examples of good form. www.waterworkout.com/ has some good ones as well as audio disks with music and vocal cues. As far as arms/legs/cardio goes, I'd go for well-rounded workouts that have a little of everything. That's what I try for in classes I teach. Do what feels good and right to your body and don't worry too much about arbitrary rules.

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

Hi all,

I'm new to this group. I'm wondering if anyone can give me some advice. There are only 2 pools in town to use, one at the high school open only 1 hour 3 days a week and it is cool. The other place is the hospital's rehab but the 2 pools there are neverending lap pools. I am going to the rehab center b/c the pools are warm and I can go there 6 days a week for up to 45 mins, but the water is only waist deep. I have water dumbells and a floating belt. I have been doing some of the exercises while I am crouched or on my knees (good thing I'm short). But I also have FM and the warm water is so important. I have searched the web to find a workout, but to no avail. I don't know the name of the exercises I do.

Here are my questions....Do you have any recommendations for such shallow water exercises? And do you think I should do arms/cardio one day and legs/cardio the next or do arms/legs one day then cardio the next? And what would be cardio in the pool? Currently I walk/jog some against the current or hang on to the bar and kick against the current for cardio.

I'm so excited to have found this group!! I've felt so alone trying to figure this out.

TIA

Lou--Deep water is the best place to work on core strength, as without the floor for balance & pushoff EVERY movement is a core exercise IF you are constantly monitoring your body position to keep in vertical alignment: ears over shoulders over hips. Asymmetrical movements are especially good: 1 side at a time jax, kicks, skis and the side-to-side moves called shoot-throughs or shooting stars. Spare your back by keeping pelvis aligned and neutral, and by flexing your knees before starting the side to side motion. Have the therapist check your body position to make sure you've got it right. Have fun and good luck!emoticon

Hi;
Just joined the team, but have been doing water exercises for 18 months, I have Fibro. and the water really is the only exercise I can do without a lot of Pain. In fact, it actually works better then pain pills.

I go to a wellness pool, and they don't really have any instructors, the therapist gives some suggestions, but I am mainly doing what I was shown when I first started.

I do walking, stretching, use paddles like weights, for arm strengthening, and deep water jogging. If any one has a suggestion on how I can get more core exercises done,(without hurting my back) I would greatly appreciate the advise.

Oh by the way I don't know how to swim, and I can't use a belt. But I do use flotation devices on my arms for the deep water exercises.

Thanks WETPTARMIGAN, the light goes one - makes sense. Especially the cooldown!
Now that I'm getting "older", the posture is heading south and being aware of it even in the pool I'm sure will be an added benefit.

I teach water exercise and I have a couple of suggestions for your core work. First of all, do all of this in your best posture: as if there was a string from the crown of your head to the ceiling--ears over shoulders, shoulders over hips, abs engaged & chest lifted. Water walking in good posture is the best core exercise of all. Vary it to keep from getting bored. "tightrope" walk, pigeontoed, toes out, tiptoe, on heels, sweeping foot out to the side, everything both forward and backward. Anything you can think of. It's a great cooldown, too, and the slower you go, the greater the challenge to balance and core. If you have deep water, jog there in good vertical posture and you can cover both cardio and core.

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

Maybe look and find a different exercise to do each time you go and keep rotating the list. For example, do the leg one you've been doing one day, then do jumping jacks in water that is chest high, then do jogging in place in the water ... just keep adding to the list and see what you come up with.

Talk to one of the instructors, they can probably show you a better way to do what you're doing. And take advantage of using noodles.
My kids directed me to swimplan.com - which they use, and found it helpful.
Also, We have a few instructors here that offer great help and I hope they see this to get ya goin...
what ever you figure out, share it we need new ideas around here!

Greetings all. Hope everyone was able to get to the pool a few times this week.

I have recently started on a fitness regimen with swimming as my primary focus. I am no stranger to aquatic exercise though because I did aquatic exercises for a couple of years back around 1983 & 84. When I got back into the pool 7 weeks ago I tried to incorporate my old aquatic exercises into my plan, but quickly dropped them primarily due to the time factor. However I think that I can probably squeeze in about 10 minutes worth every time that I swim, which is 5 or 6 times a week.

So I am looking for about 10 minutes of body core exercises and will already be warmed up when I am ready to do them. Maybe more than one 10-minute set so that I won't constantly be doing the same exercises would be good.

I was doing leg lifts with my back to the pool wall & elbows hooked into the gutters. That sort of hurt my shoulders so I stopped doing that exercise. Which was too bad because I really felt my abs working hard when I did the lifts. Any substitutes for leg lifts out there?

Anyway, if you ladies want to put your collective heads together & give one of the few male members here a few tips, I would sure appreciate it.

Thanks,

Scott

A few people wear fabric caps doing laps. The funniest was a tall, thin, old lady who wore a shower cap for water aerobics! Then there was the other one who wore socks for water aerobics. Maybe these will be next year's fad! Not! Chris

It felt like I was not moving, but I guess I was. Even turtles eventually move from place to place. chris

Yeah me too Granny. I would like to think that I know enough to save myself from drowning, however at this point in my fitness trek, traditional swimming, unless its the backstroke, just tires me out to fast. So yesterday I aqua jogged for 30 minutes and I must say I am wiped out! I even went to bed super early last night. I think I will will aqua jogg more often, it must be a good workout if I was so fatigued right?

I dont wear a cap, I have long hair. I braid it first so im not losing to much while I am in the water, plus I usually dont put my head underwater anymore, the chlorine dries it out.

I have also been told to apply conditioner before getting into the pool. I haven't tried it though.

I have been amazed time and time again of how many people don't even rinse their bodies before getting into the pool.

I once heard that not showering is equivalant to throwing 2 gallons of dirty water into the pool.
Some people get in and you can smell there odor(good or bad) on top of the water. It's pretty nasty.

Always shower and encourage your friends to do the same. Teaching people to soak their heads is good for their hair and the pool:)

Thanks for the wet hair trick. I used to know that and I have forgotten it. Remember when they would not let us into a pool without a cap?

I use shampoo to neutralize the chlorine. CVS carries it and it can be purchased online, too. My hairdresser always used to know when I was swimming. Now she never comments about that.

If you're swimming laps, I'd wear a cap. I just do Water Aerobics but I make sure to soak my head before entering the pool. This makes my hair absorb less chlorine.
Good Luck:)

Do you all use a cap or not? I'm trying to decide whether to get one or not. I'm worried it would feel like pressure on my head and not be comfortable? I already use goggles cos my eyes hate chlorine. Maybe I shouldn't bother as my hair is short anyway? I dunno....

These are some great moves. Have you tried to use cuffs on your ankles? Talk about a strength workout! Your instructor should have you wear cuffs on your arms when using buoys in the deep. It's very easy to hyper extend your shoulders otherwise. Your neck and shoulders need sufficient support.

I recently started deep water aerobics and here are some favorite moves I love:

For abs and inner thigh:
Bend knee and bring ankle up to middle, try to touch alternate hand to ankle -- depends on that physic thing if you can -- you know matter can't occupy the same space at the same time? -- the less there the easier it is to touch, but hey, we'll all get there eventually)

For leg strength and cardio: Use a noodle in a "U" under one foot, use the other leg like a scooter to send yourself moving around in circles, switch off before you get too dizzy! Ha You can also do this with a belt across the pool. Let one leg hang loose and use your arms with thumbs up for more arm workout.

For legs: Using foam bar bells in each hand, lie on your side and flutter kick -- 4 kicks for each "count" if you can. Then switch sides. Hold one hand on hip and one arm straight in front. No belt.

For arms: Do circles with the foam bar bells in front with legs doing a basic low level run. Keep bar bells in the water. Also, hang like a cross and pull the bar bells down and then slowly up. Do Ups and Downs in front from the elbow and these are all good at developing muscles to support the shoulder and help with rotator cuff stuff.

Remember to keep good posture in mind when doing deep water stuff. Helps to look at the ceiling or away from the water to stay more verticle between hips and head. If you're buoyant like me, you can ditch the deep water belt and work out without it. It adds intensity without you realizing it...

Hope this helps.


Take as good a care of YOU, as you take care of others!
Easy to say -- hard for me to do!

Ya..Givens was where we went! Stinky bathroom but nice pool!
3-4 times a week would be perfect. You could easily get in a good 25-30min high cardio, 5-10min cool down and then a slow ab workout-stretch.
Check out hydrofit.com for deep water exercises with a noodle. Isn't that what you use?
You might want to prchase a pair of cuffs from that website...they are great in deep, either on your ankles for cardio/strength or on your upper arms for abs.
One thing I like to do for my class is a Wave Run. It's very simple but kicks butt! Run the length of the pool and Cross Country the width. You can make variations of this by changing the width and length moves...
straddle run/swim arms
bicycle run/no arms(put hands on side or hold hands out on top of the water)
backwards move..opposite ankle-hand touch, scooping hands forward from back pocket area.
The website will give you some great ideas.
I wouldn't be surprised if you gain a following at the pool. You could eventually have your own little class!
Good luck and let me know if this helps. i'd love to hear how it goes.

Was the Givens Hot Springs the pool near Kuna that you went to? That's the one I'm thinking of using. It's just down the road from where I board my horse, so I'll be going by there 3-4 times a week or more. I'm trying to fine-tune the logistics of my exercise/activity life. Once I get it sorted out, I'll be contributing to the challenge. If you don't hear from me regarding the challenge, keep those *winks* coming. I get easily distracted and sidetracked. It helps to have some friendly accountability.emoticon

Is this a large pool or small?
I went to a Hot Spring up by Kuna last year. It had a large pool that was very warm and then little tubs that were quite hot.
Is your pool "hot tub" hot or just on the warmer side?
The Y deep pool feeds from a Geothermal line but they put in cold. It's on the cooler side of warm...if you know what I mean.
Let me know, so I can answer you better.

How many days a week, and for what duration of time, should a person do water aerobics? I also might be doing them in a natural hot springs public pool. Should workouts in hot water be shorter than in a regular pool?

Cajrio - it looks like your bathing suit is floppy because you're doing so well on your weight loss - keep it going.
I have a suit made by Endurance - -I live in my pool and it has kept it's shape through thick(fat) and thin (eventually)

I have found that after a few weeks of working out my bathing suit stretchs and becomes floppy, is their any brand that others have found to be sturdier?
