Shoulder strength for surfers

Strength training will help… Now I’m not just talking about pumping out bicep curls and bench press.

I am talking about training the specific patterns of movement required to be a good surfer. Squat, hip hinge, upper body push, upper body pull.

Train for connection and then load the connection to improve the ability of your body sustain long hours in the water 💦
