How To: Shoulder Openers on a Stand Up Paddleboard

Check out Paddle Into Fitness Instructor Mandy’s Shoulder Openers on her SUP!

1. Come into a seated pose on your board with your legs extended out in front of you. Make sure your hips are in the middle of the deck pad.

2. Scoot your knees in towards you and sit up nice and tall. Place your hands on either side of your hips.

3. Inhale, lift your hips up to the sky and walk your feet out until you are in an inverted tabletop position.

4. Exhale, lower your hips and sweep them between your hands as if coming to a seated position, but keep your hips lifted above the board, hovering there. Flex your toes.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 five times.
