Here’s the last part of the workout plan that will help you prepare your body for surfing. This time the emphasis is on the muscles that help paddle longer and catch more waves.

You already know what to do to improve your balance and posture and how to train to provide better stability and maneuverability in the water. Now it’s time for 4 exercises that will strengthen the muscles that work the hardest while paddling and getting up on the board when you’re catching the wave.

And again, presented exercises look simple and not demanding at first glance, but my shaking shoulders while doing pushups for example, are a living proof that it’s not that easy.
