Okay, so then I guess i’ll take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and be the first to ask… So I surf a lot… What exercises would you recommend to help build up my paddling strength and stamina? Sometimes there’s a week to two weeks before there’s surf, so I like to go to the gym and stay ready. That way when there is surf, i’m not all out of shape.
This should be in a different category
Reply to @est1990: Interesting!!Follow this plan:
!!!The reps are high,but this will help you a lot to increase your stamina!!!
’‘So you start with a light weight and perform 30reps.Then you increase weight to perform 25…20…etc.BUT You have to feel what the exercise do to your muscles.You must perform slow negatives,EXPLOSIVE positives and squeeze on the top of every exercise’s rep hard.I want you not to stop while your muscles burn but You will stop only when you can’t do another rep.I want you to give your best.
