How to Walk on Water

Walking on water isn’t as impossible as it sounds. In fact, it’s a pretty achievable goal for anyone who wants to work hard enough. You just need a little bit of magic and a showman’s spirit.

It’s also a great exercise for people with joint pain and damage, including psoriatic arthritis. The buoyancy of the water reduces the stress on joints and makes movement easier. Water can also provide a challenging workout because it is denser than air and requires more energy to move through, which can strengthen muscles in ways that aren’t possible on land.

For example, walking in deep water can target more of your core muscles than walking at waist level. To do this exercise, you’ll need to engage your core and lower your front knee so that it is below your ankle while stepping with your back leg into the water. You can also try walking sideways or shuffle your legs like crabs to get an even more challenging workout. For an added challenge, you can wear floatation gear or straddle a foam pool noodle for extra support and to increase resistance.

There are also water walking classes at most gyms that can give you a guided workout with a certified instructor. To prepare for the class, you’ll need a towel and swim cap. Many fitness centers also have water treadmills and elliptical trainers, so be sure to check those out, too. In general, you’ll need to walk at a slower pace than on land for this type of exercise, but you can also increase your intensity by jogging or doing interval training.
