1 Strength Training in Water by Christine Alexander author of
2 ACSM recommends strength training 2X a week Strength training in water is an option that requires an understanding of the properties of water 1. Archimedes Principle 2. Buoyancy 3. Viscosity 4. Inertia 5. Acceleration 6. Action/Reaction
3 Archimedes Principle a body will float if it displaces water weighing more than its own weight. Translation: Some things float in water, including this rubber ducky, and many of your clients and their limbs. Buoyancy a force acting in the opposite direction to gravity. Translation: If you push the rubber ducky underwater, it will rise back to the surface of the water.
4 Viscosity the friction between molecules of a liquid causing the molecules to tend to adhere to each other and to a submerged body. Translation: The water has times more resistance than air. Inertia an object will remain at rest or in motion with constant velocity unless acted upon by a net external force. Translation: Stopping or changing direction requires more effort than continuing with the same movement.
5 Acceleration the rate at which a body changes speed is directly related to the force applied. Translation: Pushing harder against the water increases the intensity. Action/Reaction for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Translation: A forceful action in water will noticeably pull the body in the opposite direction.
6 Concentric contraction the muscle shortens Eccentric contraction the muscle lengthens All contractions are in water are concentric contractions, because the resistance of the water is in all directions. If eccentric contractions are desired, equipment must be used.
7 Submerge the arms when performing upper body exercises. Bend the knees to lower the body if necessary. Elbow flexion concentric biceps Elbow extension concentric triceps
15 Trunk flexion can be performed standing or suspended on a noodle
16 To increase intensity, take advantage of the properties of water: Buoyancy Squats Lunges
17 To increase intensity, take advantage of the properties of water: Viscosity A hand closed in a fist or a hand sliced sideways through the water creates minimal resistance. An open, cupped hand with fingers slightly spread is more effective at pulling water.
18 To increase intensity, take advantage of the properties of water: Inertia Combine exercises, such as shoulder adduction & abduction with transverse shoulder adduction & abduction Acceleration Push harder against the water Action/Reaction Combine an exercise that pulls the body in one direction with travel in the opposite direction, such as transverse shoulder abduction while traveling backward.
19 The shoulder joint is a shallow ball & socket joint, built for flexibility.
20 Things NOT to do: Avoid wall hanging exercises. Avoid suspending the body from equipment under the armpits or held in the hands.
21 Things NOT to do: Transverse shoulder abduction with the thumbs down causes shoulder impingement.
22 Things NOT to do: Plunging the arms in & out of the water may cause a shoulder injury.
23 Weighted equipment Wrist weights Ankle weights
24 Weighted equipment Elbow flexion concentric biceps Elbow extension eccentric biceps Shoulder flexion concentric anterior deltoid Shoulder extension eccentric anterior deltoid Shoulder abduction concentric deltoids Shoulder adduction eccentric deltoids Transverse shoulder abduction & adduction primarily isometric deltoids to hold the arm up at shoulder height Diagonal scapular retraction concentric trapezius & rhomboids Diagonal scapular protraction eccentric trapezius & rhomboids
25 Weighted equipment Knee flexion concentric hamstrings Knee extension eccentric hamstrings Hip flexion concentric iliopsoas Hip extension eccentric iliopsoas Hip abduction concentric gluteus medius Hip adduction eccentric gluteus medius
28 Buoyant equipment Knee extension concentric quadriceps Knee flexion eccentric quadriceps Hip extension concentric gluteus maximus Hip flexion eccentric gluteus maximus Hip adduction concentric adductors Hip abduction eccentric adductors
30 Exercises to try Crunch Side to side extensions
31 Exercises to try Cuff lunges - eccentric quadriceps & gluteus maximus, concentric quadriceps & gluteus maximus Cuff side kick eccentric adductors, concentric adductors
32 Drag equipment Webbed gloves, paddles, kickboards, bells, resistant arm trainers, leg fins
33 Drag equipment Drag equipment elicits concentric contractions of the agonist muscles similar to submerged movement. Resistance is greater however, because of the increased surface area. Continuous movement with drag equipment creates turbulent water activity. The antagonist fires in an eccentric contraction to slow the movement and change direction.
34 When you abduct your shoulders with webbed gloves, your medial deltoids contract concentrically. But then your latissimus fires eccentrically to slow the movement and change directions to a shoulder adduction.
35 Exercises to try Cross-country ski with power arms using webbed gloves Chest press and standing row with resistance bells
36 Exercises to try Paddles free hold position Paddles hand brace position
37 Exercises to try Kickboard chest press Kickboard row
38 Rubberized equipment Select tubing made specifically for water as pool chemicals will quickly break down the rubber.
39 Rubberized equipment Muscle action created by rubberized equipment is the same in water as on land. Any muscle action away from the anchored point is resisted and concentric. Any muscle action toward the anchored point is assisted and eccentric.
40 Exercises to try Row Shoulder abduction Elbow flexion
41 Stretch after strength training Since buoyancy supports the joints, greater range of motion can be achieved in water than on land.
42 Become familiar with the aquatic environment and use appropriate equipment movements for an effective strength training workout, and your clients will keep coming back for more.
