SUPx was born in Competitive Edge Performance (CEP), a well respected sports therapy and training facility located in the Tampa Bay area. Inspired by the elite military and professional athletes they treat, the SUPx inflatable board is the perfect blend for high intensity/low impact rehab, fitness and cross training. The program has the utility for use both on the water and in the gym or clinic.
And the Benefits of Paddleboard Rehabilitation
What is Dynamic Stablization?
In regards to exercise, dynamic stabilization is the concept of maintaining your body’s stable position and control while experiencing an unstable environment. Performing exercises on an unstable surface has not only been proven to induce higher levels of muscle activation, but to also limit the stress and compressive forces on the body.
Dynamic stabilization techniques offer strength, endurance and balance training benefits. Within the controlled environment of physical therapy, this type of rehabilitation focuses on strengthening and stabilizing your body’s core musculature in order to translate the benefits into your day-to-day life.
Why Paddle Boarding?
Stand up paddle board fitness, also known as SUP fitness, offers unique benefits that the typical clinic dynamic stabilization techniques do not. This form of “modern medicine” offers a challenging, yet forgiving environment to work within making it appropriate for most all rehabilitation purposes. SUP can also help to improve posture, while improving overall mood and body awareness. New to paddle boarding? Have no fear – because with SUP, the water is truly your safety harness.
