These are simple yet very effective exercises that you can do at home, to improve your body strength and conditioning, for the exact muscles you need in surfing.

These exercises are very specific for surfing, as they engage the right muscles that you need when you go surfing.

You can do these exercises before a surf trip, to prepare your muscles. 

In this case we suggest you start with this training 2-3 weeks before your surf trip, exercising 3-5 times a week.

You can start the first week by doing 2 sets of 5 reps of each exercises.

Then you progress into doing 3-4 sets of 7-12 reps of each exercise for the following week or 2 weeks, at least 3-4 times a week.

It really depend on your body and the fitness level you are currently at.

You can also add this training to your normal routine, and in this case you'd keep your muscles nice and activated for any surfing activity.

In this case start small by doing 1-2 sets of 5 reps of each exercises, for the first week, 2-3 times a week.

Then you progress into doing 2-3 sets of 7-12 reps of each exercise.

Again, it all really depend on your body and the fitness level you are currently at.
