Fact or Myth: Do Water Workouts Offer the Same Fitness Benefits as Land-based Workouts?

According to a study published in the International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education, swimmers’ risk of death is about half that of inactive individuals. Sure, swimming improves your overall health, especially your cardiovascular endurance, but how do the benefits of water workouts measure up to the benefits of land-based workouts? Fairly well, if we go by research.
When we exercise on land, be it an aerobics class or pounding the pavement, our body weight works against gravity, and this resistance helps to build lean muscle mass and burn fat. In water, however, gravity is negated, and our body weight is 90% lighter…which is why a 100-lb woman can easily lift a 250-lb man in the water.
Aquatic exercise is proven to increase flexibility, improve aerobic fitness, and reduce joint stress. This month, we're showcasing accessories that can make your water workout even more effective--and fun!

Bet You Didn't Know . . .
Water resistance is not just a buoyancy feature to help work the muscles. In fact, the water pressure actually works with your blood as well and enables one’s blood flow to circulate more effectively throughout the body, effectively decreasing blood pressure and, in the long run, decreasing resting heart rate. This benefit means your heart is maintaining its productivity while putting less stress on your heart!

Statistically Speaking . . .
Water has greater resistance than air, which means walking in water requires more effort and ultimately burns more calories than walking on land. Expect to burn between 400 and 500 calories per hour in a water aerobics class. ~ Aquatic Exercise Association

Arthritis: Keeping Travel Pain-Free

The world is too big to be left unexplored. Whether you're going on safari to Africa or getting together with your family for the holidays, you don’t want to miss these memorable moments for any reason — let alone because of your arthritis.
Here are some easy tips for making your holiday travel as painless as possible.

Before you go

Packing properly for your trip is always important, whether it's sunscreen for sunny climates or a parka for northern destinations.
Travelling with osteoarthritis takes a little extra preparation. Here are a few things you'll most likely want to bring with you:
  • Medication: Always bring more medication than you think you'll need to account for any unforeseen circumstances, such as layovers or delays.
  • Assistive devices: This includes canes, walkers, heating pads, extra pillows, or whatever else might make the journey more comfortable.
  • Necessary information: This could include your emergency contact information, or your doctor's phone number in case you need advice on your trip.
When preparing for your next adventure, make your trip easier and more enjoyable by taking along aids that can help you get ready at home and on the go.
