Dragon Boater’s Core Workout #2 The first core workout was such a hit that I thought I would add a few more exercises to it. Do each of the following exercises for one minute: Crunches: Note that the hands are only resting on the head, not pulling on it. You can just touch your fingertips to the side of your head to be sure. Crunches with knees up: Shins horizontal, bring the knees close to the chest as you come up. Leg raises: Start from 1 inch off the ground and don’t go more
Many fellow paddlers have asked me what I eat to stay fueled AND stay in shape, so I thought I would share some of my own strategies with you here. This is what works for me. I will write another blog soon about general nutrition. One of my first (and probably most important!) rules is to avoid eating food your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize. What do I mean by this? Well, real food like broccoli, apples, chicken, oats, etc. would all be recognizable by someone who was born in the late 1800s or early 1900s.
Eight great exercises to strengthen your core and prepare you for the upcoming paddle season.
