Development of an Aquatic Exercise Training Protocol for the Asthmatic Population Authors: Kasee Hildenbrand, Sara Nordio, Timothy S. Freson, Bruce E. Becker The purpose of this article is to propose creation of a consistent, measureable 12-week aquatic exercise progression for individuals diagnosed with asthma. An aquatic exercise option not requiring swim skills may offer real value, but no previous literature explicitly describes a standardized nonswimming aquatic exercise progression. Participants were [Read the Rest…]
