Friday Fitness: What’s SUP?

Amber Yoga SUP

H3 is excited to announce the newest addition to our adventure fitness activities, SUP! SUP is an acronym for “Stand Up Paddle”.  SUP Boarding is a surface water sport, meaning it is a sport that is performed atop a body of water. Stand Up “paddling” differs from “surfing” mainly because you do not need a wave to propel yourself. Instead, you propel yourself by using a paddle.

 

Just like standing on the BOSU, standing on the board requires basic balancing abilities. This balancing act actively works to strengthen and tone muscles in the legs and buttocks. The paddling exertion facilitates strength gains in the muscles of the back, shoulders, arms, and core.

 

As the stand up paddling trend arrives on the heels of the kayak craze, research suggests that due to the hazards of prolonged sitting SUP may offer potentially greater health benefits. It is a TOTAL body workout. Here at H3 we deem SUP as “Strength Unites Pleasure”. It is a new, challenging, FUN form of cross training. It is low impact and people of any age can get started. So what are you waiting for? Next time someone asks you “WasSUP”, you can reply “I am what’s up” or “I SUP”!
