The crowd awaits... #usopen #surfathlete

Undo all the sitting. @foundationtraining at rest stops on my 7.5 hr drive to Georgia. Healthy spine = happy people. #feelsgood #healthyspine #doafounder

Damn good stretch. Use it before you surf or train. It's hitting nearly every joint in the body. It will highlight restrictions in movement. Tight hips? Tight lats? Stiff spine? Maybe you need to isolate a joint or muscle, loosen it up a bit, then revisit this integrative stretch. This was one of the first seminars I gave a few years back at Matty's place @thegymyamba He's got a great facility and a 100% top dude. Check it out if you're east coast oz. so yeah, this was one of the first seminars, and now I've just filled up two more seminars in LA in June. Thanks to all of you out there dig the work I do and support the info I put out. Yewwww! #surfathlete #warmup

It's not fancy, but it is effective. Progress it, regress it, use it. You'll see people do this often, fast, and with spinal movement. Nope. Wrong. Control the torso. Control the spine. Control the pelvis. Balance a shot of really good tequila on your low back. Think of reaching hand/foot away from the body. Length, not up. No arching the back. 10second holds, 10reps. Always revisit the fundamentals. This drill has been around for a long time, and will continue. #coretraining #surfathlete #innerunit #paulchek

Subtle but significant. I posted this drill the other day (horse stance or bird-dog), so here's some small refinement, but makes a big difference. Bottom image is what people will often do. They'll go into hip extension and sacrifice anterior abdominal control and move into lumbar spine extension (see the bigger space at my low back?). They'll sacrifice core "stability" and control of the pelvis. Find core "tension" by a light cough, or exhaling air through a straw. Maintain that tension, and spinal / pelvic alignment when you reach arm/leg away. 10-20sec holds. At least 5reps per side. Add a bit more abdominal tension by pulling the knee / and arm on the floor towards each other. You'll feel that diagonal abdominal tension increase. Don't sweat the abs... focus on a healthy spine and stable core. #coretraining #abs #surfathlete #backpain

New step up! @chilli_surfboards for the Ments Coaching trip in about a week. I've been sidelined from surfing with some lovely blood clots in my subclavian vein.... so no surfing, just staring at the new board. Hoping the issue resolves asap so I can actually surf in the Ments. Fader 6 2" x 19 x 2 1/4 28.5L. I need some stand up pits to do this board some justice. #newsurfboard #surftrip #surferlife

My shake this morning. Shakes are only as good as the quality of ingredients. They're an easy way for people to learn how to manipulate macros (carbs fats protein). You can easily tweak your shake depending on your goals. Check out the blog post "Healthy Protein Shakes" on the website for recipes, protein recommendations, and details on macronutrient tweaking. And make em' taste good ! If you have questions about ingredients... ask. #presurf #fuelyourlife #healthcoach

Me wearing a 3/2, and teaching @jonaddison how to do a Founder on last years coaching trip in Morocco with @saharasurf and @renauddave. Spine health is pretty relevant! What are you doing daily to make sure you can keep doing what you want to do in life? Positive inputs, that's the key. Learn how to do some @foundationtraining The key however is consistency of application. FYI, I remember that day in Morocco, it was like a perfect 3-4 foot right hand point break. #boilers #foundationtraining #spinehealth

Just spent 15 minutes meditating (indoors as it's miserable outside. Picture is from yesterday). Feeling incredibly chilled and refocused! My mind wanders a lot so was nice to just sit with some relaxing music for 15 minutes and listen to my breathing. When the mind starts thinking just focus on your breathing and clear your head again. Highly recommend this. #surf #training #fitness #strength #conditioning #sandc #athlete #athletedevelopment #surfathlete #uksurf #sundriedactivewear @sundried @cainasouzabt @katysurf @life_of_betsy @oceancorept #oceancorept #oceancorefitness #ocsurfperformance #surftraining #swisbest #newquay #kernow #surffit #weightloss #fatburn #calories

Power Turn. That 20 heat from jordy was silly impressive. Consider the forces his body is absorbing and producing in this image. So much torque, inertia, and velocity. A strong, mobile, and powerful lower body, with force transfer into a strong core. Dynamic chops, rotational KB swings, med-ball throws, speed deadlifts. These are all drills that will build those strength characteristics.... and then layer on some uber skill, and a few decades of surfing, you can do turns like this too!! The abilities of pro surfers is astounding. Smart training, and dynamic core training. Consider your body and your training, is it up to speed? #jbay #jordysmith #surfathlete
