Exercises to prep you for Stand up paddle board workout

s with any kind of physical exercise, start with stretches. Anything to lengthen your muscles, open up your chest and get your blood flowing is a good thing. If you’re stuck for ideas, look to sup yoga for inspiration. Some simple poses and sun salutations will prepare your body for a day on the water on a paddle board.

Before you start paddle boarding, you need to prepare your whole body. Don’t just stretch your legs and forget about your upper body: try pushups, squats and twists to work all your muscles and even joints like your shoulders.

Aim for a medium intensity prep workout which lasts around five minutes. This will get your heart pumping without burning out before you even begin doing your sup activity.

The benefits of preparing a few days ahead of your first paddleboard SUP attempt

Getting your body used to some of the movements and strains that it might encounter while paddle board will help to reduce the shock once you’re actually out on the water.

By stretching or exercising for a few days before you start paddle boarding on your sup, you’ll increase your bloodflow to your muscles. Provided that you don’t overdo it, this will encourage your muscles to loosen up, making them comfortable, flexible and receptive to training.

In addition, the connection between your brain and your muscles recovers very easily. If you don’t prepare physically in the days before you try Stand UP paddle board, these receptors won’t fire as quickly as they could. However, by getting in some quick and simple exercise before your first paddle board SUP attempt, you’ll warm up these connections, resulting in an efficient, co-ordinated workout.

It’s best to aim for a combination of aerobic and anaerobic exercise to prepare both your muscles and your cardiovascular system. These exercises should be equal and balanced, preparing your body in its entirety.
In addition to choosing exercises to prepare your heart and muscles, you can start to strengthen your balance by standing on one leg, squatting and flexing those ankles. The exercise in the video below is for advanced paddle boarders but gives a great example of a targeted board SUP prep workout.

For your first inflatable SUP attempt, training for a day or two beforehand should be sufficient.
However, if you’re training for a paddle board racing competition, you should start implementing a training program a few months in advance.

How To Store An Inflatable paddle board For Winter

Whether hot or cold, wet or dry, the weather always affects stand up paddle boards. The elements can cause perishing, weakening and other damage, so regardless of your area or the time of year, inflatable sup should be kept carefully.

Storage for inflatable stand up paddle boards should be the same during winter as it is in summer: keep them cool, dry and out of the elements.

It is possible to store stand up paddle boards fully inflated, but if you can’t see yourself using it much during winter months then it’s best to deflate it while not in use. If you’d rather not deflate it completely for whatever reason, partially deflate it to below 15 PSI – just remember to top it up again the next time you want to get out on the water.

It’s very fast and easy to deflate an inflatable stand up paddle board. Indeed an inflatable sup works the same way as an air mattress where the air leaks out through a valve.

Before starting to deflate your inflatable paddle board make sure that it is dry and that you are in an area away from water. The last thing you want is for any water to go into your paddle board as drying it out then would be very difficult.

To deflate your inflatable sup board, push the valve and turn it to the ‘open’ positionand the air will start to go out. You can speed up the process by rolling the paddleboard from the other end. Rolling your inflatable paddle board like a tightly packed sleeping bag will force the air out within one minute. And that it ! your inflatable sup is deflated and rolled up ready to go in its backpack!
