A Cool Total Body Windsurf Training Video
This total body windsurf training video offers everything from strength, balance, core and endurance; all in one simple exercise. This exercise is for all levels of windsurfers.
All you need is the Indo Board Gigante Flo Cushion and Indo Board. I always select the most challenging board and in this video I have Tim on the Pro Kicktail. Also you will need the TRX Rip Trainer with the heavy chord affixed to a sturdy object at chest level.
Cushion is inflated at about 30% for faster action. The board is placed horizontally and there is just enough tension in the TRX chord to mimic a fully powered sail.
I have Tim do 4 one minute reaches with the TRX Rip Trainer or “sheet ins” on one side with three positions, 5 reps each. Each position is first standard reach, then high angle for like a duck jibe, and then lower as if he is closing the sail no the deck for maximum power.
As he sheets in he constantly has to stabilize as if on choppy water. It’s like pressing the rails if you like. This requires all the tiny finer muscles of the ankle, knee and hip joint in conduction with the core; to adjust accordingly to that action above.
Be careful not to over grip the TRX Rip Trainer to reduce forearm pump. Keep your yes forward and go!
Hope you find this training tip helpful for more days of fast sailing. Thanks Tim for sharing your strength.
Should you wish to train with me, you don’t have to be on Maui. I also offer SKYPE training via high speed internet. It’s a blast and it works. Contact me through our site.
Aloha and see you on the water!
