I have done water aerobics. Its pretty fun. You won’t go in deep water (just about the 3-4 ft.). You have to be able to stand in it. It is harder than working out in air because the water slows you down. YOu might be a little sore afterwards, but you will have fun!

None of them are safe if you abuse your body using them. I personally don’t recommend aerobic exercise equipment because they all involve too much repetition of the same limited movements thereby setting the stage for wear and tear issues in later life.

People do many things which involve risks to their health and well being. Running marathons, for example, is very bad for the body. Here’s that story.

Don’t run for fitness alone. Run marathons if you compete and are willing to take the risk. But, don’t run for fitness without a good reason because running is high impact and repetitive and that means risking problems if you run long distances for a long time. Running contributes to or causes shin splints, repetitive motion stress fractures, ACL strains or separations, plantar fasciiatis, early onset osteoarthritis, and much more. And, then there’s this……..

In this book –>… the coauthors make the following assertion.

“The scientific literature is filled with data that strongly make the case that long distance runners are much more likely to develop cardio-vascular disease, atrial fibrillation, cancer, liver and gallbladder disorders, muscle damage, kidney dysfunction (renal abnormalities), acute microthrombosis in the vascular system, brain damage, spinal degeneration, and germ-cell cancers than are their less active counterparts.”

Each assertion is footnoted. They’re making the point that most people have “cardio” all wrong and don’t really understand how to train to be fit. Even the American Heart Assoc. is no longer recommending jogging but “brisk walking” instead and they’ve included strength training as a tool to improved cardio-vascular health.

And the problems continue…

People do run marathons and most would probably not if they knew how much they were punishing their bodies. However, it’s hard to fault an Olympic marathoner who is willing to take the risks for the glory and sense of achievement which the competition may yield. So, when choosing a form of aerobic exercise, it’s best to be informed of all the costs and benefits first and then make the decision. And, if people did that, they would avoid gym aerobics and just walk, swim, dance, etc. or get involved in some sport of their choosing. Dong are variety of aerobic activities which you enjoy makes more sense than just grinding away endlessly on a treadmill, bike, or elliptical.

Gyms should be used for building muscle. Anaerobic exercise offers many more benefits than aerobics. Here are some.

• Stronger bones & increased mineral density (osteoporosis protection)
• Stronger body & musculature (improved protection from injury)
• More robust organic and systemic fitness (more survivable in crisis)
• Improved cardio-vascular function (better than “cardio”)
• Higher basal metabolic rate (~5-50 cal/day/pound of muscle)
• Easier fat loss (more efficient lipid consumption)
• Greater calorie consumption (prolonged afterburn)
• Supports body sculpting (hypertrophy)
• Slows natural loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia) over age 30
• Minimal wear & tear (low risk)

You can’t get all that from aerobics (cardio).

Good luck and good health!!

Question by Averey: Dance or aerobics classes?

Answer by Emma

that is just an advert for online dance classes – contemporary as that is the style you want to learn by the sounds of it.

if you want to be able to do the splits here are some tips and stretches/exercises to help you:

you will need cushions and someone to help you. go as far down into the splits as you can without it hurting. get your helper to put cushions between you and the floor. relax so you aren’t holding yourself up. once this is comfortable, get your helper to remove a cushion. relax so you are resting on the pile of cushions. keep doing this until you are on the floor. (between each cushion try and stay there for 10-15 minutes)

if you have a have a high chest of draws or shelf, try getting your leg up onto this with the other flat on the ground. try and move as close to the object you are using as you can.

also, try starting in jazz splits either with the bent foot at the back or the bent leg at the front.
here are some stretches and quick exesices to do –

the lunge. a popular stretch, you put one foot infront of the other and then bend the back leg completely. try and push the front leg so you have a big space between each foot. you can also do this to the side.

sit with the bottoms of your feet held together with your hands and your legs bent. try and put your nose between your feet. you can also try and stay in this position but push your knees so they are near the floor. as well as this, staying in the same position, bring your feet close to your body – your knees should stick out more.

hope I helped 🙂
