It takes a lot of motivation to get yourself up and out to start a new workout regimen but we have just the right type of motivation for you from our She Shreds Ambassadors themselves:
"I do a lot of different kinds of workouts to keep it fresh, but my favorites are yoga & hula hooping! Yoga helps keep my legs & core strong, while also feeding my mind & soul. My favorite yoga pose is a headstand. I start by putting my head between my forearms on the ground & with my legs stretched out behind me, I then use my core to pull my legs over my head & practice multiple variations! Yoga makes me feel very in control of my body & very confident."

"Our season in Texas is year round and dont really have an off season. I don't have a specific work out for longboarding. I workout my legs way more then my upper body when I do my normal workouts. I do, however, practice holding my "tuck" for time; this is the position you are racing in and need to be able to hold for up to 4 minutes for certain races. I practice holding tuck on my longboard that way it will lean when I lean, this builds up the muscles more to simulate small turns. I also do this in switch (opposite foot first) to build up my back leg too. Trust me, your legs will be on FIRE after a few minutes."

"My workout routine is maybe a little different than the other girls. I focus more on muscle balance and injury prevention versus brute strength! I am currently 40 years old (and proud of it!) and so my routine is as follows:
When the wakeboard season is over I try to go to the gym 2 times a week and I will go for a run once a week. In the gym I will do some cardio training, work on my legs, and balance. I see a lot of wakeboarders with knee braces and I have also heard that a lot of riders have (had) knee injuries. I need my knees the rest of my life and I don't want to get injured so I never skip leg day!
Some of the leg exercises I am doing regularly include:
I also think it is important to have strong core for balance so I also have some exercises for getting stronger:
I wish that there was something to prepare my hands…for me the worst thing of the first rides of the season are the blisters on my hands (riding with gloves is not cool enough ;))
I try to do as many pull-ups and push-ups as I can, until I can’t do anymore!
My workout routine to get ready for the wakesurfing season in Minnesota is to eat well, drink lots of water, run, and do some cardio (sit-ups, v-sits, etc.)
