I’ve taken the plunge and got my own Stand Up Paddle (SUP) board!
The Seagods Dragon Boat paddling team were crowned Stanley Cup winners in Hong Kong for 2009, repeating their victory from 2005! I am very proud to be involved with this amazing squad!
This video shows a paddle-specific functional circuit designed for Seagods, the mixed Dragon Boat racing team in Hong Kong! The circuit utilises a range of different equipment- the TRX suspension trainer, powerbags, powerballs, medicine balls, and more for Dragon Boat specific training. This circuit can be used for other paddle-powered craft such as outriggers.
Paul Chek’s teachings have been a major source of inspiration, knowledge and learning for me. His book “How To Eat, Move and Be Healthy!“ is an excellent introduction to movement and nutrition.
The body was designed to squat, twist, bend, push, pull, lunge, walk, run and jump. These are the dominant movement patterns that we see in everyday life and in sports. I have developed whole series of exercises based around these “Life Movement” patterns to help you achieve “Functional Fitness”.
I hope to share with you on this Blog my approach to “Functional Fitness”. With the resurgence of interest in bodyweight training / callisthenics, better understanding of the importance of movement and mobility, and the increasing popularity of exercise routines like MMA and CrossFit WODs, the fitness industry is talking more and more about the benefits of functional fitness training.
Welcome to my Blog! I will be posting regularly on all matters relating to health and fitness and sharing my holistic approach to training for functional fitness with you!
