The aim of this study was to analyze the relationships between “Sailor’s jigs” kinematics and increasing music cadence. Six young women, non-pregnant, with at least one year of experience conducting this type of head-out aquatic program, with no kind of skeletal muscle injury reported in the last six months were evaluated. The exercise was recorded on video, in the frontal plane, using a pair of cameras, enabling a double projection, from above and underwater body motions, at five increasing cadences (120 b.min-1, 135 b.min-1, 150 b.min-1, 165 b.min-1 and 180 b.min-1). Images were thereafter digitized in specific software (Ariel Performance Analysis Systems). The cycle period decreased through the incremental protocol. Cycle period decrease is done decreasing joint range of motion and increasing the limbs segmental velocity as well. Although these combined kinematical strategy, a deeper analysis reveals that subjects decrease the cycle period mainly decreasing the range of motion.

The aim of this study was to assess the chronic adaptations (anthropometrics, body composition, physiologic) of the middle-aged women participating in a head-out aquatic exercise program for 26 weeks. Twenty-three healthy middle-age female subjects participated in a head-out aquatic exercise program (26 weeks, two sessions per week, and 40 minutes per session). Data was collected before starting the program (pre-test), at the 13th week (post-test 1) and at the 26th week (post-test 2). Anthropometrical data included body mass, body mass index and several anatomical perimeters. Body composition was assessed measuring several body skinfolds. Physiological measures included the resting heart rate, systolic, diastolic and mean blood pressures.The body mass and the body mass index presented non-significant improvements throughout the program. On the other hand, subjects improved their body composition, decreasing fat mass.Main improvements happened in the first 13 weeks, since most variables did not present significant improvements between the post-test 1 and post-test 2. As a conclusion, a head-out aquatic exercise program with 26 weeks promotes a significant improvement in the anthropometrics, body composition and physiological response of healthy middle- age women.
