There are 2 Types of Aerobic ExerciseHigh and Low-Impact
What's the difference between the types of aerobic exercise?
You can jump start your weight loss program if you understand the difference between the 2.
- High-Impact Aerobics
- Low-Impact Aerobics
The biggest difference between high and low-impact aerobics is the possible risk of injury.
High-impact aerobics, such as step aerobics, requires both feet to regularly lose contact with the floor. The risk of injury increases.
Whereas when doing water aerobic exercises (a low-impact exercise) the risk of injury is greatly reduced because this only requires 1 foot to lose contact with the floor at a time.
Before starting any exercise program, first consult your health care provider to discuss any possible health risks or complications. He/she can provide recommendations and specific direction regarding if aerobic exercise is the best fit for your health circumstances, limitations, or restrictions.
