Get your SUP Fit On… Get Inspired to Get in Shape for Spring SUP Season
With paddleboard season right around the corner, we thought that we would share some of what we are doing to get our bodies ready. Core strength is the number one help for SUP riders, so the best thing to prepare for the upcoming season would be a 30 Day Plank Challenge, like the one seen below. Although the plank challenge won’t be your only form of working out, we are going to add it to our every day workout routine. Some of the best workouts to get you in shape for the paddling season should include pushups, burpees, Russian twists, scissor squats, and leg lifts. Incorporating Balance Boards (we love Indo Boards!)and yoga balls into your workout will give you the added bonus of helping balance too. Below is one of our favorite at home workouts for you to try! Remember, your goal should be to workout for about an hour three times a week, and that there is nothing wrong with changing the workout to fit your needs and awesome achievements! Forming a challenge group on FaceBook with some like minded friends or coworkers can really help keep you accountable for starting and finishing your workout each day.
