Hi, here a short edit about freestyle performance and physical training with athletes. It's kinda a promotional video but educative too.
Whatever is your practice level, to train your physical skills in addition to kitesurfing is essential to progress, keeping injuries away :wink:

Enjoyed the video. I don't think overall fitness is taken seriously enough by alot of kiters.
Maybe you could take a few of your favourite exercises and show a progression of how a kiter with little excercise background can build on the skills necessary to do that specific exercise.

Thanks for the feedback. Next projects are made of tutorials videos, more educative and useful for all the kiters !

I don't believe in it.

Do you ever see a lion do physical training before it takes down a gazelle? How about a polar bear doing sit ups before it mauls a big fish?

I do not need to do anything before I kite

Hey, LFAK. Lions and polar bears live lives of continuous physical activity. They don't need to warm up. Most people don't live like lions and polar bears. :thumb:
