Can Surfing be Part of Your Fitness Program?

Surfing is a sport that takes a great amount of balance and core strength to do well. Not only does it provide a solid cardovascular workout it also uses a number of muscles that will improve your physique. As you swim out to the next great wave, push yourself up on the board, or try and maneuver you will find yourself engaging in all types of pro-fitness activities.

Triceps, biceps, deltoids, trapezius, rectus abdominis, latissimus dorsi, and obliques are just some of the main muscles used. You will get as much exercise on your board as you do in the gym but you will feel good about it and have fun.

Beyond major muscle groups it takes considerable effort to stabilize yourself on the board. This means that many of the smaller muscles are being impacted as well. These are the muscles ignored in the gym.

Balance and flexibility are helpful as you get older. Keeping yourself on the board helps your muscle groups work together and maintain their flexibility by adjusting itself.

If you are looking for a way to balance out your body building routine and hope to improve overall shape and reduce your fat then surfing is helpful. Combining with swimming, muscle use, and stabilization improves overall fitness and balance. Why not have some fun and work out by surfing?
