When paddling a kayak you give yourself a good workout and have fun as well.

Paddling a Kayak gives you a good cardio workout which also helps to strengthen your heart and get your blood flowing through your body which is good for the best health.

When paddling a kayak you work the muscles including your back muscles, upper arm muscles, shoulder muscles, grip and forearm muscles, leg and hip muscles, chest muscles and ab muscles.

Some other muscles that you work when paddling a kayak are your back muscles, rotator cuff, Triceps and Biceps, Chest and Core Muscles.

Going Kayaking or even Canoeing can work those muscles and help you stay fit, active and keep your body healthy so that you can live longer.
