Presented By:
 Nick Held, M.Hk, CSCS, Research and Development Manager at Hydrathletics

In this webinar, Nick Held, Research and Development Manager at Hydrathletics, will focus on the biomechanical alterations during running while immersed in water compared to land-based running. Water running has become commonly used by athletes, recreationally active individuals and practitioners for rehabilitation or as a form of cross-training.

This webinar aims to present findings in the literature regarding alterations in kinematics and kinetics during deep-water running, shallow-water running and underwater treadmill running. Additionally, Nick will discuss practical applications for underwater treadmill running and a protocol to transition from water to land-based running.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify the kinetic and kinematic alterations during water running.
  • Determine the advantages and limitations of using water running.
  • Apply a return to running protocol to transition from water running.
