Abstract

Deep water running (DWR) has become an alternate training technique among injured runners. DWR uses similar movements as running and can be a training modality for injured runners. It has not been well established whether the heart rate (HR) in water exercise and land exercise is the same when the workloads in the water and on land are identical. Using runners and swimmers, this study determined if the HR during treadmill running (TR), cycling, and DWR at 60% and 75% of MaxVO2 were different. Ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) between runners and swimmers during TR and DWR were also compared. Analysis of the data showed that runners, at both intensities, had no difference in HR between TR, DWR, and cycling. At 75% of MaxVO2, swimmers had lower HR's during DWR than TR and cycling. There was a difference in RPE between runners and swimmers during TR and DWR.
