Water supports up to 80% of your weight, which reduces stress on your joints and torso. Another aspect of aquacise is the Eddy Resistance, which leads to amplified muscular endurance. The lowered gravitational force in water also leads to improved flexibility. Your heart even benefits from the resistance in the water. Due to lower gravitational force and Eddy Resistance, your heart can maintain a lower rate and pump oxygen more efficiently to the rest of the body and brain.
