[fa icon="calendar"] Mar 19, 2015 11:55:57 AM / by Joe MacGregor

Have you ever missed a wave because your arms felt like noddles? Surfing is 10% riding and 90% paddling. The off-season is a great time to build arm strength, endurance and power.

Below is a quick pool work out designed to help your paddling endurance:

Warm Up: 
15 minute swim mixing in various strokes.

Main Set (three times through):
1 x 200 yards at a comfortable pace (endurance).
4 x 50 yards at a faster pace (strength).
8 x 25 yards all out (power).

2 minutes rest after each time through.
