Waterman Workout

 

This hypoxic workout is mainly used by watermen in order to increase their body’s efficiency when briefly starved of oxygen.

Underwater running can help your body to learn how to work better even when the regular, consistent supply of oxygen isn’t available.

This workout can be done with rocks (“rock-running”) or simple weights. In our case we use a kettle bell and start in shallow water in order to get used to the weight and the breathing cycles. We then slowly make our way into deeper water where it takes longer to reach the weight and thus the running distance per breath decreases.

The whole workout takes about 1 hour including resting periods.
