If love spending time outdoors like me, then chances are, you’ve been kayaking. After all, what’s not to love about maneuvering your own lightweight kayak into tight sea caves, being able to get closer to sea life, and escape the noise on land for the quiet on the water? An extra bonus – it’s a great family activity.

 

Because kayaking requires a lot of upper body strength and endurance, it provides great physical conditioning to those that perform it. And what’s not to love about an activity that you enjoy, takes you outside, and that also gives you a great workout?

Alex over at KayakCritic is guest posting this week for me, providing readers with 7 health benefits of kayaking. Enjoy the post!  -Julie

Thanks for the information on how you can burn around 400 calories an hour when you kayak at 5 mph. This would be a great way to lose weight or get in shape while also having the chance to explore some lakes or rivers. Purchasing the right kayak would probably help you go at a decent speed so you can burn a number of calories you want as well as enjoy the trip.
