Getting on a bike in the water instead of swimming — what’s the point? Very much! Especially when swimming is not so easy anymore. In aquabiking, a trained trainer leads the course in a non-swimmer’s pool about 1.35 meters deep and about 30 degrees Celsius warm. The participants sit on bicycles specially adapted for use in the water. The legs pedal at intervals of varying speed. In addition, the positions change between sitting, standing and floating. In contrast to normal cycling, the whole trunk and upper extremities are trained. The water resistance is helpful here. This allows you to “work” in any direction to train individual upper body muscles or even entire muscle chains at the same time. The intensity can be regulated: by bending and stretching the arms, by the hand position to change the resistance in the water, and by the speed of the exercises. The “brake system” on the ergometer can also be individually adjusted by the user from “light” to “heavy”. Aquabiking increases the condition because there is a “continuous pedaling”. Since not only the legs are in motion, but also the arms, Aquabiking is also ideal for training coordination. Don’t forget your Aqua shoes!
