Surfing Exercises & Stretches for a Beach Surfing Warm Up

Aloha Surfing Athlete,

Thanks for Dropping in to Surf Training Secrets…

Surfing Exercises & Stretches for a Beach Surfing Warm Up

Here is the 2nd, ‘Quick Moves Surfing Exercise Video’ showcasing simple movements you can perform on the beach (without looking like a complete idiot) before jumping in the ocean and paddling out. These Quick Move videos are created to give you simple and very effective surfing exercise stretches and mobilizations so that you continually build a better surfing body.

We all know what if feels like to be in pain or have muscular aches right? Well one of the best remedies to help restore balance and reduce physical pain is to regularly warm up, stretch and mobilize as a part of your surfing exercise routine. Check out this weeks surfing training video.

Surfing Exercise Quick Moves Video 2

SURF TRAINING SECRETS:

* In this Quick Moves video take your time and use your core strength to roll up into standing position. Your head & shoulders should ‘feel’ heavy and loose and be the last to come back into place as you stand. Avoid shrugging them up.

* As you roll up to stand be sure you are exhaling. This will help to engage your core muscles and have you ready to inhale when in full standing position. This will help prepare the lungs for surfing.

* When walking forward into a plank position avoid sagging your low back and when you push back into the Yoga Downward Dog position look back between your knees to get a better stretch

* Remember this is pre-surfing or pre surfing exercise / training which means we want to keep the body moving, we want to be in a dynamic or moving state not a static stretching state at this point in time.

Some of the best Surfing Exercises are Mobilizations and Pre Surf Stretches

Every time you go surfing your body is between your board and the water and the forces from both the wave and your surfing must go through your body. This means muscular imbalances are the norm in most surfers – especially as most of us have one dominant stance and many of us may only surf in one direction (i.e. your local spot is a point break)

This one directional repetitive motion leads to muscular tension in your surfing body and one of the best things you can do to improve surfing potential is to add surfing stretches and mobilizations into your pre – surfs and surfing workouts.

best surfing exercise, surfing fitness, surfing stretches, surfing workoutsRemember, great athletes in many disciplines often talk about remaining at peak fitness due to their warm up, stretching and mobilization techniques. A few minutes of simple surf stretches or basic surfing exercise can reduce the likelihood of surfing injuries and keep you in the water (surfing well) for much longer as you age…

So add some of the movements I am showing you into your surfing fitness training and reap the rewards of a better surfing body.

Surfing is our medicine right? So… remain surf strong, fit and flexible & keep your exercise surfing workouts short, sharp & real.

How Surfing Nutrition Can Power Up Your Surfing Fitness

Aloha Surfing Athlete,

Thanks for Dropping in to Surf Training Secrets…

How Surfing Nutrition Can Power Up Your Surfing Fitness

As surfers we tend to neglect the fact that what we eat (and do not eat) has a massive impact on our lives and thus our surfing fitness and potential in the water. This is especially true as we age, with each additional year becoming more and more important to understand how nutrition plays an integral part of the strength of our surfing bodies and long term surfing performance.

SURF TRAINING SECRET: Looking and feeling great is 100% dependent on what you regularly ingest. Nutrition is often the vital missing link in improving surfing potential, performance and strength.

In the video below Taj Burrow and his trainer discuss some of the elements that nutrition and surfing exercise have had on Taj’s mind and body. Watch minute 4 and then check out the delicious power shake recipe below so that you can power up your surfing fitness.

Taj Burrow, Nutrition and Surfing Fitness

As in the case of all surfers, nutrition hugely impacts the hormonal and physiological systems in our bodies and is a vital part of the surfing training equation. Nutrition is a science in itself and this blog touches on the importance of becoming aware of just how vital our food choices are throughout our life. For many surfers one of the easiest way’s to get in some good nutrition in the form of real food is through shakes, smoothies and juices.

Try this Tasty Power Shake For Post Surfing and Surfing Workouts

1 x Fresh Coco Nut (Use both the coconut water and the flesh)

1-2 x Banana

1 x Cup of Ice

Pinch of Cinnamon

Small Pinch of Ground Ginger

Blend well.

Options to add while blending; (i.e. Keep the blender ON)

Teaspoon of Organic Honey

Teaspoon of Organic Cold Pressed Olive or Coconut Oil

Table Spoon of Peanut Butter

1 Fresh Organic Egg (Blend for 5 seconds only)

Tastes Delicious. Obviously you can add all the options or choose what you wish.

Surfing Fitness Benefits – What’s in it for me?

As Taj’s trainer mentions, “Taj feels a lot better when he eats well… he performs better, he has more energy… nutrition is a big part of it” Lets face facts; most of us want to look and feel stronger, have more energy and catch more waves. One of the fastest ways to do this is for focus on good nutrition combined with specific surfing exercises so that you can continue to fire in the water.

YES: You will have more energy during surfing sessions, and surfing fitness training sessions.

YES: You will recover faster from surfing, surfing workouts and have less injuries.

YES: You will more easily maintain a lean muscular physique and maintain your sex drive.

YES: You can continue to party, socialize and have fun.

YES: Nutrition is a huge part of building a better surfing body.

These points alone should have you digging for more free information on how you can quickly improve your surfing body with the power of nutrition for surfers.

Surfing is our medicine right? So… remain surf strong, fit and flexible & keep your exercise surfing workouts short, sharp & real.

Surfing Exercise Quick Moves Video 1

Stretching, Mobilization and Warm Up Benefits for Surfers

It’s pretty simple really, the goal is to help prepare your nervous and musculoskeletal system before starting paddling out or prior to your surfing fitness or training program. In this Quick Moves video, tuck your head in as low as possible and twist slowly from side to side.

Remember, great athletes like Michael Jordan and Kelly Slater often only remain at peak fitness at the top of the pack, because they have avoided serious injuries.

Touring Struggles & Surfing Workouts with Taj Burrow & Julian Wilson

Aloha Surfing Athlete,

Thanks for Dropping in to Surf Training Secrets…

Touring Struggles & Surfing Workouts with Taj Burrow & Julian Wilson

Taj Burrow and Julian Wilson are both incredible surfers with some serious surfing talent and exceptional surfing fitness… that said, they use fitness trainers, physiotherapists, massage therapists, surfing workouts and sport specific nutrition to maintain their physical well-being and avoid injury.

By utilizing athletic protocols administered by most pro athletes they ensure their surfing bodies can perform optimally both in and out of the water, year in & year out. Check out how they handled the pressures of competition and touring throughout 2013 and ask yourself, what could you be doing to improve your own surfing body and athletic capabilities for your 2014?

World Tour Challenges & Surfing Fitness

Now that the 2014 ASP World Surfing Tour has kicked off and the young Medina took out the Quiksilver Pro, I wonder what other surfers are doing to prepare for the rest of the year.

At minute 9.10 Physiotherapist Tim Brown reminds us that modern surfing athletes can add specific exercises to their surfing training or fitness programs to improve their bodies and thus their surfing performance. One simple training method is to include a regular massage (a real one… a deep tissue corrective one) into your surfing training program. Just be warned that an excellent corrective massage can be more uncomfortable than performing a surfing workout or exercise program and as Julian say’s, may make you want to throw up… However, better to go through some ‘good pain’ and get the kinks out rather than let them fester into a surfing injury and end up out of the water completely.

If your the type of surfer who pushes hard, launches, twists with power and generally surfs a lot, or likes to spend time surf training and working out for surfing, then getting ‘worked’ on by a sports massage therapist can be a painfully golden option instead of working out for surfing when the swell dies. This is also a good option for the older crew finding it hard to keep up due to aches, niggles and pains… i.e.. getting on in life… myself included!

Surfing Fitness, Confidence & Mind Games

During your massage you may also want to spend time on your surfing mind game. Again, this is something most pro athletes do in other disciplines and it all starts with the voices we hear in our own heads. In order to improve at any level we can copy the mindset of competitive surfers to improve our own surfing capabilities. Julian mentions he loves the, ‘challenge of surfing’. This mindset means staying focused on improving when confronted with challenging surfs or situations – and all of us go through that mind game at some point or another as we progress as surfers.

The more we get comfortable with being uncomfortable, the faster we can progress as surfing athletes. And I need not remind you, that if you surf, the more athletic you are, the better you can perform. Being comfortable in challenging surf is very different for every surfer out there, yet no matter what level of surfer you are, having a strong, fit, flexible body and being comfortable with your surfing fitness has a very high carry over to positively impacting your mental surfing game.

Nutrients affect your Mind & Your Surfing Fitness

Taj readily admits that the food massively affects his mind and his surfing fitness and notices the nutrients he consumes is super critical to keep energy levels high for long durations of time. He also mentions he has become very conscious of the power of food and how it makes him feel, and you should too.

As a surfer and more importantly as a human being, you will feel better mentally and physically by tuning in to how food truly impacts all area’s of your life and performance. Just as Kelly Slater or any pro athlete that works with a nutritionist to improve fitness, power, energy for workouts and over all performance.

Surfing Workouts & Injury Prevention with Owen Wright

Aloha Surfing Athlete,

Thanks for Dropping in to Surf Training Secrets…

Surfing Workouts & Injury Prevention with Owen Wright

Owen Wright is a formidable surfer who busted on to the scene a few years ago and then seemed to quickly fade into the back ground. What happened?

Surfing Injury. (Video Below)

Surfing Injuries are more common these days due to a number of reasons. Younger surfers are pushing their bodies higher, faster and with more rotation and force than ever before. These repetitive rotation and impact motions put massive strain on connective tissue and the joints of any surfers body. Meanwhile the older generation are suffering in the modern ear with a high incidence of stress related challenges that contribute to less muscular power, lower energy levels and more musculoskeletal problems.

The good news is that with the correct exercise surfing workout you can align and strengthen your surfing body to keep you in the water doing what you love. Just remember however, that small niggles can creep up and eventually lead to major and painful problems. Pain is a signal. Listen to pain; that is your body informing you to stop what your doing and go seek help. Below the video is a training sequence to help prevent and /or over come any surfing injury you may have.

Unfortunately Owen didn’t listen to the pain signal early enough, and continued with his surfing and surfing fitness. Luckily he met up with an old friend of mine Aaron Mckenzie who helped get his mind and body back in the game.

GYMNASTICS QUICKLY BOOSTS SURFING WORKOUTS

Aaron Mckenzie is a CHEK practitioner like myself and we both come with a Gymnastic background that allows us to work with athletes and teach them real functional movements to enhance real time current surfing maneuvers.  This means exercise surfing workouts encompass a lot more than just surfing fitness and focus on individual physiological, mental and emotional needs. When I first met Aaron I was blown away with his down to earth, functional, science based approach to surfing training. If you are ever surfing over in Sydney Australia, head over to Bondi Junction and check him out.

EXERCISE SURFING WORKOUTS IN THE 20th CENTURY

As surfing athletes living in the 20thC we are put in a position of choice – to choose to be healthy and strong, living a lifestyle encompassing a ‘self care’ attitude or choosing to follow a ‘medical health care’ approach that typically means ending up on medical drugs or having surgery. Owen choose to use his surfing exercise program to strengthen his body correctly and in the correct manner and this in turn will impact his mind and surfing confidence. He could have continued with old surfing training habits, yet instead embraced new ideologies, probably began stretching more, probably began eating better foods, and as Aaron mentions, uses his mind to visualize the outcomes he desires. If your wanting to improve surfing fitness and your ability to catch more waves and surf out of your nut then I recommend getting out of your ‘comfort zones’ and working on new ways to improve your surfing exercise and surfing fitness.

PREVENT SURFING INJURIES WITH YOUR EXERCISE SURFING WORKOUTS

When you surf train correctly you can over come or even prevent many of the injuries associated with surfing. We all know surfing injuries suck, heck, just being out of the water sucks. As Owen says, “I have not been able to do the thing I love the most”… many of us can relate to that feeling when we can’t get in the water. So your surfing fitness in the modern era needs to embrace the idea that surfers can focus on staying both surf strong and surf supple by any number of exciting ways to surf train.

The first step is to get your basic alignment right, this may mean working with a Yoga instructor or professional CHEK trainer etc. Then focus on the following principles when ever your in the gym or at home during your surfing workouts.

1) Flexibility: Find area’ s in your body that are very tight and you know are inflexible. It is typical in many surfers to have very tight hip flexors, hamstrings, calves, chests and backs and neck musculature.  That’s a lot of stretching….focus on stretching out those area’s in your body that seem to be overly taut.

2) Mobilize: So many people forget that mobility is very important to ensure muscles and joints work systematically and fire in the correct sequence. Mobility movements can help prepare the body for work and ensure your surfing workouts are productive from the get go. (Foam rollers are a great idea for surfers….)

3) Stability: As surfers it is crucial our joints can stabilize before we go throwing weights around or joining a X Fit class. Work on balancing muscles in your body and using stability exercises prior to jumping around like a lunatic. :)

4) Strength: While maintaining good stability and good posture then strengthen your body specific for surfing. Before getting into sport specific functional movements for surfing fitness get the basic strength fundamentals down. Obviously as surfers we are pretty extreme and will need start up strength (explosive) combined with power endurance, yet just make sure you have followed the above points before jumping right on into your surfing strength training or you may end up with a chronic injuiry in the long term.

5) Lastly: Remember that the goal of gym work is to strengthen your surfing body for the demands of surfing and no gym time can replicate ocean time. Remember however the demands of modern surfing – spins – impacts – power; require a functioning surfing body, so do what it takes to keep your surfing body in great shape.

SPEED UP YOUR SURFING WORKOUTS WITH BRUCE LEE

Aloha Surfing Athlete,

Thanks for Dropping in to Surf Training Secrets…

SPEED UP YOUR SURFING WORKOUTS

It’s pretty obvious when watching pro surfers they have an ability to generate speed very quickly and then pull off powerful fast turns at lightening speed. Do you think they work on improving neurological function with speed based surfing workouts or slow gym based programs?

This week we learn from the master of speed Bruce Lee. Check out the incredible timing, speed, co-ordination, flexibility and power he demonstrates in this video. Especially watch the table tennis – amazing speed and timing skills all surfing athletes would love to have.

Fire up speed muscles during your surfing workouts

We can learn a lot from Bruce. His training methods to develop speed and power without becoming bulky can benefit surfers. Please understand that not all muscles are created equally and the muscle fibers required to produce force or generate power when surfing require specific speed training. If you want better success with your surfing or your surfing fitness be sure to utilize some movements that challenge your entire nervous system and fire up the muscles involved with speed and reaction time.

Surfing Workouts – Why not table tennis?  

Both Kelly Slater and Rob Machado like table tennis… a lot… maybe they knew that while also being fun, table tennis helped improve their timing, reaction times and speed. Who knows? Perhaps table tennis was a bit part of their surfing exercise program? Just know that there are many sports and games that can naturally help to boost your surfing fitness and you can use with your surfing workouts to improve speed and reaction times. Often the best movements are the ones where you only use your body weight or very light equipment to generate speed, power and force. Maybe this is why Kelly Slater trains in MMA to help maintain those essential surfing skills. Comments? Drop them below.

Your Best Surfing Exercise is Explosive Surfing

Hey Surfing Athlete,

Thanks for Dropping in to Surf Training Secrets…

Your Best Surfing Exercise is Surfing

Last week I blogged about scientific research validating the extreme physiological impact that surfing has on our body and the need for sport specific surfing training and surfing exercise programs. This becomes especially more relevant the better one becomes as a surfer and extremely relevant if you wish to compete or have dreams of turning pro.

That said however, we all know that the very best exercise for surfing is simply to go surfing. However, that alone is not good enough. Whenever you enter the ocean your mind-set will dictate if your surfing will be the best surfing exercise or not. It is your mind-set that determines if you get loads of waves and push yourself each time you paddle out or sit on the inside grovelling. It is your mind-set that makes you go for more waves, paddle harder, surf explosively, or not. When you watch the video below, think about that, think about how these women got so good. All natural talent? I don’t think so. For most of them it was their desire to improve and their mind-set every time they entered the surf.

So this week, enjoy the following video that is aimed to motivate you to surf, motivate you to train, motivate you to move your body so you perform better in the surf. Be prepared to be blown away by the advanced surfing skills of the women in this video.

Surfing in the Ocean: Your Best Surfing Exercise

The Best Surfing Exercise Starts with Your Mind-Set

So, get your mind focused each time you paddle out because that is as important as your surfing fitness and surfing workouts. Hopefully you too will be surfing like the women ripping in this video.

New Research on Surfing Fitness & Training

Hey Surfing Athlete!

Thanks for Dropping in to Surf Training Secrets…

New Research on Surfing Fitness & Training

Olly Farley is a surf researcher who has recently come out with scientific data that shows pro surfers seriously push their bodies limits and need to consider specific facts when surf training. He says that surfers, “who are fitter, stronger, and more powerful will dominate the lineup when surfing”. This means that your surfing fitness and training program will have a dramatic impact on your water time. It also means, spending more time on your board or in the water is a crucial element to improved ocean performance.

Surf Researcher on Surfing Fitness & Surfing Training

Olly researched such times as maximum heart rates when in the water (very surprising), speeds and distances traveled on waves (also surprising) and discussed the best methodologies for surfing exercise and surfing specific fitness. The pictures below are from an article published in Surfer Mag and the link for the entire article is below.
