This is a semi-advanced exercise that targets the triceps, shoulders and chest and is what I have my surfers try. Even great for non-surfers!
Difficulty Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Muscle Group(s): Triceps, shoulder and chest. Great for core stability and mimics what your surfboard might feel like underneath you! I love this one.
Equipment: Inflated balance disc and the INDO Board
Progression: Raise one leg off the floor, or place feet on a BOSU dome or another inflated disc.
Preparation: Assume the push up position. If you are a beginner, you can bend your knees. Make sure the disc is centered underneath the INDO Board.
NOTE: If the disc is over inflated it will be much harder, than if it’s softer. Legs extended on floor.
Movement: From the start position, lower your chest to the INDO and then press up into the push up.
Push up with the strength of your entire shoulder girdle back to a straight-arm position.
Repeat movement sequence for recommended repetitions.
