Functional core strength will take your surfing to the next level and the best way to achieve this is to fatigue your abs throughout this workout routine. We already talked about planking as a very effective way to build your abs in a previous post – here is an extra technique to strengthen your core, shoulders, knees, back and hips:

Side Planks

This is a key exercise for your abdominal muscles as well as other parts of your body. We highly recommend doing this routine and challenging your abdominal muscles at the start of your training to engage them in the rest of the workout routine. Your arms should be bent at a 90 degree angle- and you should hold this position for as long as you can on each side, and straight forward.

Don’t forget to follow the basic rules of correct planking:

1) Lie on the ground, supporting your body just with your forearms and your feet.  2) Keep your body in a straight position and brace your core. 3) Be consistent and repeat this exercise at the beginning of every stretching or workout session.
