Already you have earlier the benefits of swimming for other sports. As for the surf, there are many practitioners who have a close relationship with swimming.
Apart from the fact that know how to swim is essential for the sessions in the sea, swimming gives you endless possibilities to improve your performance in the waves, especially at this time that there are many days that you can not train in the sea and, if you do, requires much more preparation which, in summer, since the water is cold and the waves come with more force.
To enjoy at the table have to specifically train the upper train, since the resistance of rowing is one of the key parts. In addition, if you have a good technique for swimming it will be easier to maintain the correct posture and balance in the table when you’re paddling in search of your wave.
The undercarriage also charged its importance when you are standing on the table, since it supports enough strain…Swimming exercise the entire hip and abdominal and aguantarás better posture, reduce fatigue and stiffness in this area.
Swimming will work the strength and muscle power, aerobic resistance and improve breathing. All this will make you can paddle harder for longer and enjoy more productive and long surf sessions.
Ideal swimming for this training consists, after the warm-up, perform continuous swim to a moderate for 15 – 30 minutes (you can tell the long and trying to do more and longer at the same time) and then a few exercises specific to improve breathing, as well as to exercise train upper and lower (better if alternate arms and legs every day) then ending with smooth continuous swim 5-10 minutes.
Some of these exercises are:
50 m. to crawl series making a long at maximum intensity and one soft: To better prepare you to changes of pace that occur at sea and also to increase the endurance.
4 100 m. to crawl with pullboyseries, in the first series Saint-Denis air every 3 strokes, the second every 5 strokes, in the third each 7 and at the latest every 9 strokes: You’ll increase breathing capacity and practise breathing on both sides, which will improve the horizontal posture and balance. You can use elastic ankle if it costs you to keep feet together.
4 series 100 m crawl with fins to a normal rhythm: The undercarriage you exercise while you do aerobic exercise.
Series of 50 m breaststroke legs making a long at maximum intensity and one soft: To gain muscle endurance in the undercarriage. You can combine them by making them side, face up, face down or table to provide buoyancy and work horizontal posture.
Diving in apnea as much as possible, without forcing: It will serve to increase breathing capacity. It is not necessary to make long distances but increasing little by little. If you are going to make apnea I recommend that you advice to the lifeguard so you can be more aware of you.
With this, you will keep the form and also to improve these aspects, essential to win the battle against waves as soon as weather permits you!
