Nothing… well at least not 1 minute abs. The health benefits of exercise have been written about countless times, and more and more people are doing different things to get their exercise done in unique ways. Of course when you are on vacation no one wants to do anything that causes a sweat, it’s r & r time. Or maybe you want to have a slight sweat, and a little adventure at the same time. That is where stand up paddle fits in. Not only can you get an amazing workout, targeting some of the most important muscles in your body, but you also get to spend your time outside on the ocean.
Stand Up Paddle targets your balance or core muscles, the ones that control everything that you do. This includes your abdominal, back and pelvic muscles. These all work in conjunction, assisting all major muscles in your body to perform every action you want to make. Your calves, thighs and derriere also receive massive benefits as you are standing and pushing around a large surfboard. Let’s not forget your arms and back, which get used every time you stroke the paddle. The beauty of SUP is that you can set your workout pace and goals, so it can be relaxing with minimal impact or you can max out the challenge. The best part is that it just doesn’t feel like work. You are outdoors, in the sun, feeling the breeze in your hair.
