Sometimes we cannot get out to dragon boat training due to circumstances such as weather or as at the time of writing this post: coronavirus. So rather than lose some of that fitness you have tried so hard to get, I thought I would outline a short (15 minute), exercise routine.
This is for those that do not have a mini gym at home, but what it will do is provide a foundation of exercises that will get your heart rate up and which you can do on the floor, on the lawn with no props.
This sequence could also be a solid warmup routine for when you can get back to paddling.
The 5 exercises are:
- Dying Insect
- Chest Push-up
- Chest Taps
- Russian Twist
In short you do each exercise within a minute and if you finish early, you use the rest of the time to recover. Then repeat the sequence two more times. There’s your 15 minutes.
