How to build surf stamina at home?

Postby SurferJosh » Wed Sep 12, 2012 5:59 pm

Hey,

Haven't been surfing in a while guys so to get the most out of my two week stint in Maroc next week i need to build my stamina as much as possible!

How do you guys do it, gym? Running? Swimming? Tension exercises? Plyo?

Cant wait.

Kettlebell swings and a rowing machine are the best at home surf fit training ive found. Saying that ive not indulged in either for some time :oops:

Any of the above will be better than nothing. As Monkey says, you probably left it a bit too late though.

Insanity my friend. The workouts are insane (hence the name!) - Day 1 fit test was the hardest i've ever worked in a 30-40min period.. It works on Plyometric Cardio Circuit... explosive moves which translates well into surfing.

Best of all - you dont need anything other than a little space, tv and dvd player!

Some of you are taking this waaay to literally/offensively.

Of course my trip is in a week and there is hardly anything i can do to improve my stamina (duh) but it made me think generally of what people do when they DO have an upcoming trip and would like to improve their fitness especially for surf.

Geddit?
