I've touched down back in the big smoker that is London and hot off surfing like a wildcat for the last few months, I have been carefully structuring a highly specific and bespoke surfing fitness workout, following on from the successful Shred Ready: Snow Fitness sessions of last year. As the European summer surf season will soon be kicking off, whether or not you've been braving the baltic British seas and making the most of the winter swell, and whether you're a seasoned or novice surfer who spends plenty or not quite enough time in the water (like some of us land-locked surfers!), Shred Ready: Surf Fit is a bespoke workout that will improve your stamina and conditioning with highly targeted movements that work to boost your performance and ultimately enjoyment in the water.
Focussing on the critical factors crucial to developing your dynamic surfing ability, we will be looking at:
-Improving your dynamic surfing focussing on honing power movements including pop ups and cutbacks, even laybacks
-Flexibility - improving your range of movement and mobility and protecting against injury
-Balance - enhancing your ability to stabilise and maintain positions
-Understanding your surfing movements and the muscle groups that drive them- sharpening fast-twitch muscle fibres and muscle memory
-Targeted strengthening exercises and movements to boost power and condition
-Aerobic fitness - conditioning the heart and muscle tone, paddle stronger and tire less
