Upcoming Webinar: Addressing Potential Misconceptions about Training with Aquatics
The benefits of aquatic therapy are becoming increasingly widely accepted. However, there are still some commonly held beliefs about the limitations of the use of aquatics, especially for athletic training and sports performance.
Join us May 14, 2015 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm EDT for the free webinar, “Addressing Potential Misconceptions about
Training with Aquatics.” Lance Walker, PT, CSCS, Global Director of Performance for Michael Johnson Performance in McKinney, TX, will review some of these potential misconceptions, and to what extent his considerable experience with using aquatics as part of his training program has supported or contradicted them.
Some commonly held misconceptions about aquatics that will be discussed include:
- The effectiveness of an aquatic environment is limited strictly to rehabilitation purposes.
- In the water, it’s not possible to match the intensity of a land-based workout.
- A natural running gait cannot be replicated in the water.
These topics will be illustrated by video examples of the aquatic training protocols used at Michael Johnson Performance.
