If you have an aqua-jogger belt deep end pool runs can be beneficial for strengthening the hamstring as well as maintaining fitness. Because their is less stress on your body when running in water, you can do much more volume without worrying about long lasting fatigue. I would typically prescribe a workout that consisted of intensities achieved in a normal running workout for similar durations but increase the total number of reps by 125-150%. For instance, if the workout for the day called for 8 x 200m @ 75% (roughly 32 seconds) with 2 minutes rest, I'd prescribe 12 x 32 seconds with 2 minutes rest.
I do not know how to swim. Would I still be able to use this aqua-jogger?
