The Inertia

Staying fit will always be an ever-changing challenge and in order to reach your fitness goals so switching up your routine is essential. This keeping your body guessing and avoiding those dreaded plateaus. Whether you’ve been standup paddle boarding (SUP) for years, are new to the sport or have never SUP’d in your life, these three moves are perfect for all fitness levels and can be done on the beach before, after or in between your SUP workout while incorporating your paddle!

Try these moves and let me know what you think in the comment section below:

Side Plank Crunch

Begin in a side plank position, with right hand planted firmly in the sand, shoulder over wrist, left arm pointed towards the sky. The body is in one long straight line of energy from the crown to the toes, with ankles stacked. Inhale the left finger tips overhead, creating a crescent shape with the body, lifting the hips high, while engaging the obliques and abs. Exhale hand back to center and curl it down underneath the ribcage. Inhale to center, and repeat these steps 5x, then switch sides.
