The benefits of Kayaking&canoeing
One of the best benefits of kayaking is the reduction of
stress. While on the water, it's difficult to focus on your
worries, and much easier to let go, breathe, and enjoy
one of life's many pleasures. The water itself is relaxing,
as the repetitive motion you'll use to propel yourself
through the water is almost like mediation.
The average 125-pound person
will burn 300 calories per hour kayaking. Those who weigh
closer to 185 pounds can
expect to burn as much as 444 calories per hour. With many other exercises, you might look forward to finishing as quickly as possible. With kayaking, I find it hard to want to get out of the water!
Time goes by quickly, and it's easy to spend several hours paddling, which can add-up to nearly 1,000 calories or more.
While paddling, your body will use nearly every muscle in the upper body and some lower body muscles. It works your arms, shoulders, upper body, and core muscles and can strengthen
your legs as you apply pressure in order to propel your
kayak forward. Of course, kayaking will also work your heart muscle, as it's an excellent aerobic exercise, elevating your
heart rate for an extended period of time.
