Best Exercises for Paddlers: Workouts for Before & During Floating

Rowing, canoeing and kayaking require upper body and core strength, along with some amount of endurance. With a little planning, preparing physically for your next watercraft outing, or deliberately maximizing the amount of exercise you get while on water-themed trips, can be achieved as well as be rewarding.

When in doubt, work with a personal trainer or canoe/kayak club coach to establish a customized training program.
