Stand up paddle boarding is an ideal sport for cross training for athletes of any sport. Doing exercise on an unbalanced surface like the water trains new neural coordination between muscle groups, including the legs, back, feet, arms, neck and stomach. It uses the whole body to build new core muscle strength and balance. And these benefits are highly transferable to other sports by helping to provide the explosive strength that is often required. Traditional resistance training simply builds strength in a stable environment and the nature of sport is rarely that stable or controlled.
