One cool thing about stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is that you can vary your experience from exhilarating to relaxing. You can choose to go downwind at high speeds, through challenging waters, or find a calm lake to practice yoga on your paddleboard. No matter the style of SUP you choose, one thing is certain: SUP is good exercise. Before setting out to buy one, start by comparing models, features, and prices at https://www.thesupguru.com/

Specifying the number of calories you’ll burn while paddleboarding is hard to do. That’s because the number varies greatly depending on which activity you’re involved in. If you’re paddleboarding at a leisurely pace, you can plan to burn 305 – 430 calories, according to SUP World Magazine. That might not sound as impressive.

In addition to the calories you’ll burn, there are many muscles you can target and tone while on your paddleboard. Many people look at paddleboarding and assume it’s all about the arms. After all, you’re using a giant row to push against water resistance and propel yourself forward.

Paddleboarding is surprisingly a good core workout. That’s because you have to engage your core muscles and lower back muscles to maintain balance while on your board. The more you paddle from side to side, the more your muscles tense up.
