I went for a looooong paddle this morning and while I was there, staring out at the open ocean, I thought this workout up.
But you don’t have to be a Stand Up Paddle board enthusiast to benefit from this workout! It is a great set of exercises that anyone can use to become more stable, strong and durable.
The exercises in this video are:
- Standing Bird Dog
- Standing rotation (with resistance band)
- Hip hike with leg raise
- Shoulder External Rotation / Internal Rotation
- Wood Chopper
- Side plank / side plank rotation
- Running Man Row
- Hip clock
Stand Up Paddling (or SUP) requires some full body stability and balance along with some specific strength in the core (knees to nipples) and shoulders. This workout addresses the major aspects of those needs.
If you are getting ready to start paddling or looking to up your SUP game, doing this workout, as a super-set (back to back), 2 or 3 times through, would be a great idea.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
