As a pro team SUP rider for Naish International and fan of the TRX Rip Trainer, I’ve combined here the basics of core training to anyone but specifically for SUP or stand up paddling. The exercises here do require one to already have some experience knowing how to activate and engage the core. These are excellent and challenging. SUP can require explosive paddling at times. Hope you enjoy! Suzie Cooney, CPT of Suzie Trains Maui

Training Tip: When you change “variables” in your training routine, your body will likely respond more quickly vs. doing the same old thing. A variable may be increasing or decreasing the number of reps, changing the order in which you select the exercise, changing the platform you are training on; such as an inflatable disc, or increasing the amount of weight used for the exercise.
