Each well-executed paddle stroke works the muscles of your arms and shoulders, which quickly gain strength and power.
But while doing so, other parts of your body are also being exercised:
- Your abs are particularly engaged whenever you heel over and turn.
- Your abs, back, legs, and glutes are also working to maintain your posture while you paddle.
- Your cardio and aerobic capacities are enhanced: the continuous movement of the oar gets your heart working more and improves its health.
You are already in shape but want to tap a little more into your reserves? Divide the workout! Paddle vigorously for 1 min and then switch to a more moderate pace for 2 or 3 min. Then do it over and over!
Kayaking is also an effective way to raise your heart rate and burn more calories. It is definitely a great calorie-consuming workout, and it helps tone your muscles.
