Deep Water Exercise For High Performance Sport
About the Book
Optimize Athletic Performance! Deep Water Exercise for High Performance Sport What is it? Deep water exercise or running is exactly what the name would imply. The athlete follows an exercise routine while suspended in a body of deep water. This non-weight bearing environment gives Deep Water Exercise (DWE) its unique potential for benefit. “Due to the non-weight bearing nature of DWE, an athlete can often perform high intensity training in the water, while unable to bear even their own body weight when standing on land.” MM Mike Moon has expanded the concept of deep water running to include “Deep Water Skating”, the training technique he has employed with hockey players. The principles of DWE can be successfully applied to a variety of sports.
