Would walking in water or cycling be the most efficient exercise

This answer was rated:

Would walking in water or cycling be the most efficient exercise for a 275 pound person with joint pain and gait abnormalities? Can you show me a sample 5 day program for each type of exercise. What are your reasons for not using other forms of exercise?

Exercise is great for a healthy body. However in your case with your weight along with your joint pain and gait abnormalities, it would be more beneficial to alternate with walking in water and cycling. A five day plan might be as follows:


Monday: Cycling 15-30 minutes


Tuesday: Walking in water 20 minutes


Wednesday: Cycling 15-20 minutes


Thursday: Walking in water 20 minutes


Friday: Cycling 15-30 minutes am

Walking in water pm


Other exercises would put too much strain on your joints such as walking on a treadmill or walking around your neighborhood. If you are trying to lose weight and once the weight comes off, walking on a treadmill may be an option as well.


You can also do strength training exercises with 2-8 pound weights that work out your upper body.

Why would you choose to do both forms of exercise instead of one or the other? Are there benefits to doing both?
