It’s that time of year…everyone is getting ready to gear up for the paddleboard race season. It seems like several people all have the same get-into-shape plan, and I have had a few friends ask if I have any suggestions for workouts both on land and in the water.

It should be said that I am not a trainer, or a fitness professional. The workouts that I am going to post are just ones that include exercises that have helped me get into shape for different kinds of ocean sports. Having said that, here is a beginner-friendly dryland workout…

Before you get in the water…

1X
20 full sit ups

2X
1 minute jumprope
10 pushups
1 minute jumprope
10 jumping squats

1X
20 crunches
20 right side crunches
20 left side crunches

2X
1 minute jumprope
10 burpees
1 minute jumprope
20 walking lunges (10 each leg)

1X
30 russian twists

Have fun! If you have any questions, please ask them in the comment section, and I will get back to you =).
