I’ve said this before, and I will say it again to reiterate: The human body is designed to move. Run, swing your arms, spin, jump, bend….move. These actions require the interaction of muscles throughout your body, muscle chains, or fascial lines-which is what we call them in the health world. Chains of coordinated muscle action is what allows you to move in the surf. You will be able to react to turns, turn your head, spin your shoulders, and swing your lower body around to smash the lip and throw some gnar-spray, brah.
CABLE MACHINE CIRCUIT TRAINING: Pulls, Pushes, & Chops
Surfing is all about flow, movement with ease, and reactive timing of muscle chains. You can train your body to do that. A cable machine is one of the few “machines” I use with myself and my clients. With proper use, you can train groups of muscles that will have you moving with more strength and efficiency. Chops, Dynamic Pulls and Pushes-Rotational Training…so good!
