Surf Stronger Fit Challenge #1

Ball push ups are a rad, surf-specific exercise you can do when you are cross training for surfing. The ball push up is an excellent surf-specific movement, because it builds strength in the chest and arms for paddling and simulates the unstable, wobbly nature of duck-diving. You’ll appreciate the benefits of these push ups during tough paddles and whenever you have to perform several duck-dives in a row.

The challenge:

Perform as many one legged ball push-ups as you can in one minute, on one side. Rest one minute, then switch feet and attempt as many one legged push ups on the other leg.

Rules: Your chest must lightly touch the ball on every push-up — you can’t bounce off the ball. One foot must be on the ground, and the other suspended in the air. Do as many as you can in one minute on one leg, rest for one minute, then switch legs. Email us your numbers at info@surfstronger.com. Winner gets a free, limited edition, Surf Stronger “Mind, Body, Surf” t-shirt. Contest closes midnight February 12, 2009.
