Journal of Sport Rehabilitation, 04/24/2012Masumoto K et al.
The observations suggest that half the speed should be required to work at the similar metabolic costs and perceived exertion (RPE) while walking in water with a current, compared with walking on dry land. Furthermore, it was suggested that the physiological responses and RPE would be higher while walking in water with a current than without.
