INCORRECT LOAD DURING SURFING

Surfing is a sport that is practiced for pleasure, but for health, you have to add decent exercises on the shore to compensate for the uneven load. I have a friend, Sasha Pavlov, a surfer and a professional fitness trainer who is well versed in physiology. I asked him to talk about exactly how the surfer suffers from his hobby, and whether it is possible to correct or at least reduce the negative effect of surfing.
A bit of general physiology
All muscles are connected in a common chain, and fascias connect them – connective tissue, elastic but elastic, which does not allow the muscles to disperse, holds the fibers together.

Learn diving in a group or individually

All. Decision is made. You decided to become a diver. And they even found a club and chose an instructor who will nibble on the granite of diving science. The thing is small – sign up, pay for the course and start practicing. It remains only to decide how – individually or in a group of the same afflicted as you?

At one of the passes, Andrei learned from the Sherpa conductor that Lake Tilicho, the highest mountain lake in the world, is located near their route. As it was found out, the lake is located at an altitude (according to various sources) from 4960 to 5200 meters above sea level and has dimensions – four kilometers long and a half kilometers wide.
