We all have different abilities in life and it’s no different when it comes to training BUT there are still things we can do to help us reach our physical potential.
A good exercise program will help you identify and strengthen your weak links and this will help you reach your training goals no matter what they are!
If you’re not sure what your weakest links are then look for those things which you tend to avoid or that you’re not good at and you’ll usually find them.
We tend to be drawn to our strengths and do these things more because we’re good at them.
Some people are naturally flexible so they do lots of Yoga or stretching (women generally fit this category more than men).
Others are naturally strong and tend to gravitate more towards strength training (generally men).
Maybe you have great endurance so you’ve always done sports like running, swimming or triathlon.
I’m all for doing the things that you enjoy but if you only do the type of training and exercises that you’re good at and don’t work on strengthening your weak links then you’ll be less likely to reach your athletic potential.
This is particularly true when it comes to training for sports like surfing which requires a lot of different abilities to do well.
Eg: It doesn’t matter how strong you are or how good your upper body endurance is for paddling if you lack the flexibility or mobility to get to your feet fast.
When that wave of a lifetime comes along you’ll be watching it roll away or possibly experiencing the hold down of your life instead!
My “Surf Strength Programs” have been designed to help strengthen your weak links.
– The stretch and mobility exercises in this program will help align your body so you have the movement and stability required to surf well and prevent injuries
– The strength exercises in the program will add strength, stability and some muscle to your whole body so you can withstand the demands that surfing and being in the ocean place on your body
– Some exercises in the program will help build upper body endurance so you can paddle further, stay in the water longer and catch more waves!
– The program will also help you develop more power so you can do better turns, paddle faster, get to your feet faster, or get more air if that’s your thing!
Do the right type of preparation NOW and paddle out with confidence!
