Lets’s face it: these past couple South swells have likely been a bit of a wake up call in terms of your paddle power.

If that’s not the case, good on you; I’m extremely jealous. However, if you don’t fall into that category, the spring doldrums have definitely left a few of us (cough, cough, me) a little weak in the paddle department. As the summer is just getting started, it’s not to late to whip those muscles into shape, and this quick workout is a great way to do so. It targets the upper body and abs, so it addresses the main muscles responsible for paddle strength. Incorporate it into your weekly exercise routine, and I have no doubt you’ll be feeling a lot quicker in the water.
