You also remove the whole point of doing the training...

The only thing you should be doing underwater is:

Holding your breath.
Scuba diving.
Attacking via amphibious assault.
Swimming/diving for fun or competition.
Taking a bath.

I agree Steven, but that falls under swimming. Tell me how running in a pool translates well to anything on land? It doesn't, and If you don't need to be bearing your weight on land, YOU SHOULDN'T BE WORKING OUT.

I read crap like this, and I go wow, these people are idiots. Injury is there for a reason. It's your body and life's way of telling you that 1 - your form and technique sucks, and 2 - completely rest, heal completely, and spend that time learning how to do things correctly, then apply them once healed.

Sorry I don't buy the benefit of it.
