    That's exactly how I feel about it, why practice exercising to compete at exercising...I would rather exercise so I can be good at REAL activities like surfing...how much life experience can you get sweating in a gym with a bunch of people, only to train to compete in events getting sweaty in a gym with other people.

    ^^i couldnt agree more ^^

    Just another fad for people who didnt have a clue to begin with. Nothing about it is revolutionary. Just showing people who only new basic exercises that there are actually other ways to work out.

    when your poor,everyday living can be considered training.i used to ride my bike from Elizabeth down 1&9 to woodbridge.i walk miles everyday,not because im training,because Im trying to get to point b.my work does more damage than any gym can.iv always been fit and didn't realize it til I got older and fatter.when your constantly moving,your burning calories and stretching those muscles.rich people that sit around all day and go out a few times a year to surf,yea maybe u should hit the gym or do some jogging.cant really see any type of workout that could improve ones surfing.running and lifting plates isn't going to help u when u take a 23footer on the head,and wont help u slide across that wall of water any better.surfing is an excercize.its like asking how do I train for sex

    It's always good to stay fit. It improves a lot of aspects in your life, not just surfing. When you're in shape you feel better and perform better at everything. When you get out of shape (or when I get out of shape) you get lazy. Obviously you will be better at athletic stuff when fit, but you also work better and naturally have more confidence.
    It doesn't have to be in the gym. Doing something fun that's also a good workout is cool too.

    I go to the gym every day. Do I do specific workouts for surfing? Hell no, I don't live in Hawaii, I live in VB lol.

When I went back, they were all like "hey we heard you ran into Mike" and then just gave me a group intervention about what drinking does to my body, and gave me some extra credit type sh*t to do for the diet. I just wanted to climb some ropes and sh*t, but noooooo. That was the last they saw of your boy Lee.
    That would never work for me. I'd tell me to piss off and start drinking beer after workouts in their presence.

    I never did compete nor did I ever intend to compete. I did CrossFit so that I can get a nice six pack and get laid more. Definitely helped my surfing. Like I said, it made me more explosive and gave me more endurance. Tough to deny that, jokes aside.

    I work in an office on a Navy base, so I want to get outside after work - surf or no surf - not back indoors to a crowded gym with absurd machines for performing mindless, isolated muscle exercises.
    I used to work out a lot with free weights in the gym or at home, but I much prefer being out in the fresh air. I believe surfing had something to do with that. So if not out on the water, I'll run for an hour - often along the beach - cranking off sets of push-ups, situps, and pull-ups (if bars are available) along the way. Robe climb would be a good exercise too, but I don't see them around much anymore - perhaps due to liability reasons.

    Read "The Tao of Health, Sex, and Longevity". It will change your life and your surfing for the better tenfold. Trust me.
