Cardio program Concept 2
The dry paddle belongs to the category of cardio equipment. This device has no popularity as a strap or elliptical. This is primarily due to the fact that it is not often represented in fitness in Serbia. However, all those who have had the opportunity to practice on this device are always happy to return.
The form of the exerciser and the age are not crucial to be able to exercise on this device. If you are not in shape, you will certainly get tired, but over time you will significantly increase your endurance. This is a device that ensures that you work on the development of the entire body during the exercise process. First of all, this device ensures that the aerobic abilities of the exercisers are even better, ie training on this device includes a large number of muscle groups. During training, that means increasing the pulse and oxygen intake, which in the long run leads to weight loss, muscle toning, improves endurance, speeds up metabolism and brings good energy, which always goes along with a good mood. If we compare it with other devices, this is one of the devices where a large amount of calories can be lost in a short time.
Very often, when exercisers come to fintes, they say that they have problems with posture and back pain. Fitness trainers use this device to strengthen the upper back, shoulder girdle, middle and lower back as well as the abdominal muscles. All this provides better posture and reduction of back pain. The lower part of the body is perfectly strengthened on this device.
Recreational exercisers are always at risk for joint problems. Personal trainers recommend this device as ideal for storing joints because with it, the load on the joints is minimal. This is especially true for people who are overweight and often have joint problems as a result. It is also recommended for use in cases of certain injuries and in the process of rehabilitation and strengthening (eg knee injuries). All of them are often denied the possibility of cardio training on the fitness bar.
As with other equipment, it is very important to perform the exercise correctly. In the case of paddles, special attention should be paid to the position in which the back is located, as little as possible the load on the lower part of the back, but above all to create movements through the legs. If you are guided by a trainer in the training process, you will very easily master the skill of using the device in the right way, which is also a guarantee that you will achieve the best results without the risk of injury.
To make training even more interesting, quality paddles also have software solutions that will motivate you to practice. Also, quality paddles usually do not consume electricity for their work, but produce the same during exercise. Although small, this is a contribution of fitness in strengthening the efforts to reduce electricity consumption.
