What an awesome workout! Most of you know that I’m a huge fan of the TRX. TRXing is something I do several times a week for my own workouts and all my clients love it too.
I am not a surfer myself, but I know that surfing takes strength, balance, and determination. As a native California girl, I’ve watched people riding the waves for years and always watch them in awe as they jump up and catch the waves. I’m always jealous when I see them out there with dolphins so close they could reach out and touch them. If only I could get over my dislike of cold water…enough about me, let’s get to the Surf Stronger workout!
This workout is a fantastic tool for surfers and non-surfers alike to increase their strength, balance, and coordination. It works the entire body and mixes in some really fun (and challenging) cardio drills. Each exercise is 30 to 45 seconds with a 15 to 60 second break between sets. I especially love the “Surfers Pop-Up Drill” which entails lying on the ground doing a paddling motion with the arms and jumping up like you would onto a surfboard.
After doing this workout a few times, I feel like I just may grab a board, learn to surf, and enjoy the fun too!
