A surfer’s body is beautiful. Lean, muscular, with broad shoulders, a narrow waist and a butt that sticks out just a little bit. They’re works of art. But life is cruel and that beauty comes at a cost. The curve at the lower back and the muscular imbalances that develop with dedication to the sport can lead to nasty lower back pain if you don’t also commit yourself to regular, targeted stretching.
Here are two principles to keep in mind
1. Your body is an efficient machine that adapts to the position it’s in most often.
2. Everything in your body is connected, so imbalances and misalignments have a domino effect.
