How does aqua-jogging compare to running in the area of calorie consumption. Do you use more or less calories. Does anyone has an estimate of how many calories you burn for a male 185 lbs aqua-jogging for an hour.

With or without a floatation device?

Not that I know the number, but there would definitly be a difference, as your effort to stay afloat without a belt is higher.

much, much less calorie consumption while aquajogging. do that only if injury forces you to be off your feet.

I have a broken ankle so i have to be off of my feet and i have to use the belt. I am just wondering is it half the calories or maybe just a few calories less. When i was running 65 miles a week i did not have to watch what i ate but now i can only aqua jog. Should i lower my calorie consumption

simple solution: wear a HR monitor. If you know your running HR's from before, try to match that in the pool for the same amount of time. BUT.....because you are being supported by the water, and something about the way the blood flows back to the heart from the hydrostatic pressure (dont' quote me on that), HR's will generally be lower in the pool for the same "effort." So you might need to go longer at a slightly lower HR in the pool to burn the same calories (If you tried to match your running HR's exactly, it might be too taxing/too hard to do).

Or, if you don't know your running HR's from before, estimate an avg of 165 (that's kinda high, but if you want to be on the safe side, estimate high). If you ran 10 miles a day before, for lets say 70 minutes at 165, then pool run and or bike for 80 minutes a day at 150. THAT will burn the same calories.

Comprende?

I feel it is much easier to burn calories on the bike than while pool running. Personally.
