If you live near the water (or plan on taking a beach vacation), this surfing type of activity is a great way to improve your core strength, balance, focus, coordination and upper- and lower-body strength. It's truly a full-body workout! Just be sure to follow these instructions for proper form:
Stand with feet hip-width apart and keep a slight bend in knees the entire time. Draw shoulder blades down and together and keep core engaged (imagine you're about to be punched in the stomach). When paddling, keep top arm straight and bend bottom elbow straight back as if performing a row in the gym. Continually alternate sides, keeping chest lifted the entire time. Try to paddle at a moderate pace for an hour. You'll definitely feel the burn the next day!
