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 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.

But let’s think – does he need it? He is interested, or will we, as always, impose our opinion on the child: “Go, it’s interesting there, you need …”? Let’s think and step by step try to understand – what, how and in what form we should explain to the child.

Probably the first thing to start with is to show parental photos and videos, of course, with comments, maybe even several different films about your dives. It is not immediately possible to find out his Continue reading
