Warm up with stretches
A good warmup is important for any workout, whether you are giving it your all in the gym or just enjoying a few minutes of cardio in front of your TV set at home. Warming up heats up and relaxes your muscles which greatly reduces torn muscles and those pains and aches you usually experience after stern workouts. Take five minutes and stretch those arms, legs and tummy muscles. You can even stretch it out on top of your sup.
15 minutes of cardio!
Now it is time to burn some calories and to give your heart the workout it needs. Take that paddle of yours and paddle as fast as you can for 15 minutes. Standup paddling will give you a good arm and back workout and is also a great squat workout to firm up your butt.
Work out those legs!
Do 3 sets of leg raises of 20 leg raises on each side. Leg rises on your knees or back is a great way to firm up your legs and to rid your body of love handles and jiggly upper legs.
Firm that belly!
Crunches are great for firming up your belly. DO 3 sets of 20 rep crunches on your sup and try to work in 60s of plank time in between or afterwards.
Cool down with stretches
Cooling down properly is the key to avoiding painful muscles. Take another five minutes and stretch it out. You can also paddle or do some water kicks just to keep those muscles moving while you cool down.
