Having a strong core is the key to having great balance, which will undoubtedly help your paddling performance. And while getting out on your paddleboard is a great way to keep your core trained there are also a few workouts you can do from home to give you that extra edge when you next hit the water. These workouts can be done from anywhere - home, hotel, park or backyard and with minimal equipment so there’s no excuse not to add them into your day!
If you are a seasoned gym bunny then you should already have some knowledge on keeping good form throughout the exercises you do. If you’ve never been to the gym before we recommend talking to someone who has a personal trainer or looking up the correct techniques on YouTube before committing to the workout.
These workouts are designed for the beginner but can be tailored to suit any fitness level. The sets we recommend can be tailored to you, you should be working until it hurts, so if you get to the end of a set and you're not praying for the workout to be over then add some more reps in. You can also add weights for a more intense workout.
