Strength training on Surfboards!

 

It’s summer time and our strength training moves will get your entire body ready to hit the beach. Minna and Style Expert Alison Deyette are back in action for these awesome exercises on the Surfboard. People assume that 45 minutes of cardio will burns the most calories, but the fact is that your body continues to burn calories hours after you finished your strength training workout. Cardio will definitely help you lose weight, but strength training will help you lose weight AND get that sexy figure that you’ve been after.

Each of these moves are a great way to build strength. By doing them on the board it challenges your core and all the little stabilizer muscles in your body. The board makes you work harder and will get you sweating a lot quicker than doing these exercises on a stable surface.

THE MOVES

Lunge to Shoulder Press: This is a total body exercise that really focuses on your legs and shoulders. Try 3 sets of 12 on each leg.

Row Your Boat: This move is a great upper, middle, and lower exercise for your abs. By holding the bar it also works your back and shoulders. Try 3 sets of 12 alternating sides.

Stand Up Paddles: This move is basically paddle boarding with a weighted bar. It is a great back, shoulder and leg move. Try 3 sets of 12 on each side.

Modified Jack Knifes: This move is mostly working the core, but by adding the bar, it works your lats and triceps as well. Try 3 sets of 12 reps.
