Description

Surfing is an activity characterized by intermittent efforts and periods of recovery with a wide range of different lengths, involving different parts of the body. This means that a surfer not only has to have Stamina but also Strength, Power, Balance, Coordination and Agility. Surf as a competitive sport as some particularities such as 40 to 50% of the average time is spent rowing and only 4 to 8% is spent on wave ridding witch is the task that is relevant to proceed to the next stage of the competition or eventually win. The first task is about Stamina with intermittent bouts and the second one is more about Power, also with intermittent bouts.

To gain strength is to develop the ability to support and move higher loads than before by recruiting more muscle fibers and to use them more effectively for a short period of time. 

This workout is about developing your strength so you can have stability and balance to keep enjoying your surf. Adding Super Sets in this workout increases volume and intensity of training, increases local muscular endurance and allows equilibrium between agonist and antagonist muscles. Drop Sets at the end of the workout you will take your muscles do complete exhaustion.
