Kelowna P11 Workouts

 

 

The P11 workouts are:

 

Pump Iron:

I like to lift some free weights as it helps maintain strength for all the sports I do.  My workout takes about 20-30 minutes and includes stretching between exercises and finishing off with some rowing.

 

Ping pong:

This is a great sport for hand-eye coordination and is something my wife and I enjoy doing together.

 

Paddleboard:

I bought my paddleboard back in 2006 and was the only person on Okanagan Lake that had one for a couple of years, but now they are everywhere.  It is a good workout for balance and the upper body while also being meditative.

 

Pedalboard:

This is a new type of board that I bought a couple of years ago, and so far, I have not seen another one on our lake.  It is a nice complement to the paddleboard as it is similar to a Stairmaster, which is a good workout for the legs.  This Hobie Cat board is incredibly stable and well designed as you can turn on a dime and ride it in rougher waters.

 

Pedal bike:

The cruiser bike provides a good workout and is easy on the body given their upright design.  We enjoy riding down the Mission Creek Greenway and into the Pandosy Village area.

 

Push up:

I do a minimum of 50 pushups per day, which helps with the upper body strength.

 

Planks:

I try to hold the plank position for 2-3 minutes a couple of times each day.  It seems to be a safer workout for an old guys six-pack than doing traditional sit-ups, which can be hard on the neck.

 

Pool:

Swimming is a good overall body workout that does not put too much strain on the joints, so I try to work it into my regime a couple of times per week.

 

Pooch walk:

Our dog Jace gets to go for a couple of walks each day to a beach, along the Mission Park Greenway, or on one of the hiking trails around Kelowna.

 

Pull:

Our family enjoys waterskiing, wakeskating, and surfing behind our boat.  They all use different muscles and require different techniques, which is fun to provide a variety.

 

Pause:

The most important part of the workout is probably the meditative pauses we try to take in a day and something that I am still striving to incorporate more of into my regime.
