Adapting Aquatic Circuit Training for Special Populations.
Practical Pointers, v4 n3 Aug 1980
The author discusses how land activities can be adapted to water so that individuals with handicapping conditions can participate in circuit training activities. An initial section lists such organizational procedures as providing vocal and/or visual cues for activities, having assistants accompany the performers throughout the circuit, and devising stations with multipurpose equipment to insure individualization. Safety considerations are briefly addressed. A listing of equipment, training benefits, and activities includes 10 stations, including a modified step test and a cone obstacle course. Diagrams and text describe weight training, bar exercises, interval training (for physical conditioning), and alternate swimming. (CL)
