There are all about SUP Paddle technique which will give you more strength in core workout shall be found here!

 

Reach more

As usual the first part of your stroke is the most effective part, We recommend you to throw your lower shoulder to the front while you back your top shoulder help you reach further out to the front.

 

Push the blade in deep, using your whole body

Focus on using your whole upper body to push the blade deeper into the water then pull through. Using only your arms will mostly be futile, try your paddle power from scale 1 – 10. Stroke level 1 for 5 times then change to level 2, keep it up till you reach the 10 level.

 

Don’t loose time when pulling the paddle out

Easily pull out the paddle when it’s too far at the back by angling the blade to the side quickly. The water resistance will be lower, thus, it’s easier to take the paddle out.

 

Don’t loose time when bringing the paddle to the front

You wouldn’t want to lose your speech by bringing the paddle to the front in a wide stroke, you surely will when your paddle back. Simply bright the paddle straight to the front eliminate the long detour over the side. Pushing the paddle down with your whole upper body then put your body upright again, quickly.

 

At the end of each stroke, take a little break and re-assess.

Take a little time to relax your muscles briefly once you’re done with each stroke. This is to assess your stroke before moving on to throw the paddle to the front of your board again and again. Paddling like running a marathon instead of a sprint will help you go faster and longer too.
