Last week, while enjoying one of my "casual rides" down BPA trail, I forgot about my limits and as a result...
So, for some time, I am going to stick to cruising, riding around and just having a good time.
If you've never been on a longboard ( or even skateboard ), you probably don't know that longboarding can also be a great workout ( without even feeling like a workout). Besides the cardiovascular benefit, longboarding provides a great workout for your core and lower body ( after pushing your board for 30-45 min, your calves are on fire ! literally...look at the picture above :)). Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot of upper body involvement.
I recently found out about "Land Paddling" , which promises to change that.
Land Paddling with the Kahuna Big Stick will help you get into incredible shape. Depending on the rider and intensity level, up to 800-1,000 calories can be burned in an hour. You can have great confidence on a board with the control and breaking capabilities the Kahuna Big Stick brings. Most importantly, you can have the most fun you have ever had on a board while using the completely unique Kahuna Big Stick.
I haven’t done this, but I could definitely see myself trying, perhaps one day. It looks like it could be a great workout while having some fun too.
Some people join gyms. Some people go on jogs/runs to get exercise. Others ride their bikes. Don't be "some people". Be different! Be fun !
