Physiological Responses, Rating of Perceived Exertion, and Stride Characteristics During Walking on Dry Land and Walking in Water, Both With and Without a Water Current

Journal of Sport Rehabilitation, 04/24/2012

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.
