I am always looking for something that will improve my paddling experience, especially while training. As I see training for SUP being taken more seriously, there are more training programs, most noticeably the Riding Bumps weekly intervals that are posted on their site, requiring more than just going for a long slow paddle or just “redlining” for as long as can be maintained over a session.

Nothing says high intensity like Burpees matched with a 21-15-9 ratio. Here are the exercises:Read More
