Water Fitness Made Easier With Amoena Post-surgical Swimwear
Features to look for in post-mastectomy swimwear
Gentle water activities are highly recommended after breast surgery. They help with arm and shoulder stiffness, relieve pain and reduce swelling. Exercising in the water usually starts 6 to 8 weeks post-surgery or radiation.
Fitness classes in the pool are nothing new; even your grandmother may have enjoyed water aerobics in the 1950s, when the trend began. But there are many more options today — dive in to see what’s new:
Popular Water Fitness and Pool Exercises After Breast Surgery
Across Europe, Aqua Zumba has quickly become a popular workout for women and men who want to maintain cardiovascular fitness but take it easy on their knees and ankles. Classes “blend the Zumba philosophy with water resistance, for one pool party you shouldn’t miss,” according to the Zumba website. What is the philosophy? “Exercise in disguise.”
How it works: Zumba’s signature world music sets the rhythm whilst the natural resistance of the water challenges you to “level-up” your workout. Always consult your doctor before beginning any fitness program.
Fitness mats are floating up in aquatic centers lately — they are designed to float on the surface, challenging you to use core strength to stay balanced on top. Much like the principles of stand-up paddleboarding, floating fitness classes offer a full-body workout with a soft landing if you fall off!
How it works: In a typical class, an instructor leads the class through different modalities including yoga, Pilates, and other moves to get your blood pumping.
If your pool or spa is equipped with underwater stationary bikes, you are in for quite a ride. Much like spinning classes, aqua cycling pairs coordinated speeds and routines with the low-impact of water resistance for an excellent workout of both the heart and the muscles.
How it works: While it is obviously challenging to pedal underwater, the buoyancy lessens the impact on your joints; meanwhile, your body temperature is regulated easily with a splash!
