Those surfers you see killin' it out there on the waves? They (probably) weren't born with that ripped bod. All of that paddling and popping up and down in the water "creates that long, lean physique," says celebrity fitness trainer, Adam Rosante, the founder of The People's Bootcamp. He created a new workout called WaveShape to help you get the surfer's body of your dreams.
"My friend Anna Jerstrom, the owner of Calavera Swimwear, called me one day and asked if I could help her and her athletes ramp up their training regimen," Rosante says. "She sponsors these amazing women who face down some of the biggest waves on the planet. So it was really important to me that they stay as functionally strong, agile and powerful as possible."
Rosante's workout is based in a framework he dubs "power intervals," which improve endurance. The moves are done over a series of 30 seconds, so you can focus on form, not reps. You can learn the full series (12 moves) when it launches as a free online community with video at www.getinwaveshape.com, and you can pre-register for it now.
Rosante gave us a sneak peak at five of the moves that'll get your body in surf shape."Do this three times a week with another two days cross-training of your choice and you'll be bouncing quarters off your abs come June," he says.
- Perform each move back-to-back for 30 seconds each with no rest. That's round one.
- Rest 30 seconds and repeat this format twice more for a total of 3 rounds.
- Remember to maintain perfect form and go at your own pace.
