Water aerobics makes it possible to lose weight and have fun at the same time. Water aerobics is one of the best cardio exercises you can do while protecting your body. The water provides the perfect amount of resistance to increase your muscle mass but is not overly intensive on your joints to make your workout painful. Because of the nature of this type of exercise, it is easy to use every day. When you add water aerobics equipment to your workout, you can personalize the intensity of your workout.
Adding more resistance than the water provides during your water aerobics workout provides you with an even more intense workout. If your goal is to build muscle mass or lose weight, adding barbells, such as the Speedo Aqua Fitness Barbell, gives your body floating support, while also providing resistance. You can choose to use one or both barbells during your workout to greatly increase the effectiveness of your workout. For those who do not need the flotation support and simply want the resistance, the Speedo Hydro Resistance Water Weights provide the perfect amount of resistance in 1 or 2 pound weights. They are also ergonomically designed with grips to reduce the number of times the weights slip out of your hands.
Experience the resistance you get when you lift weights without holding weights at all. Water aerobics gloves, such as the Speedo Aqua Fitness Gloves, are made of neoprene, the material wetsuits are made of, and have webbed fingers to provide the perfect amount of resistance when you move your arms back and forth in the water. Different water aerobics classes will use different techniques to help you gain the benefits of your water aerobic gloves.
Jog belts are another popular piece of water aerobics gear to help you increase resistance and stability in the water. Jog belts, such as the Speedo Aqua Fitness Jog Belt, offer the perfect amount of stability in the water, while increasing your ability to tone your muscles and burn more fat.
All the water aerobics equipment available, including water weights, water aerobic gloves and jog belts, allows you to participate in cardio workouts, while remaining low impact. This is the preferred method of exercise for anyone with an injury, the elderly or those who wish to protect their body from the dangers of high impact exercise.
