Dynamic stretching - recommended for person engaged in extreme sports

Dynamic stretching - recommended for person engaged in extreme sports

We always care about our riders. That’s why we started Human Concept philosophy. The point is, to understand it is the human who is the most important part of the system, because even the best equipment is not able to function alone. It is the rider who connects all elements of kitesurfing. It means, to develop the best equipment, we have to analyze and understand natural advantages and limitations of human body and mind, and built the gear around them. But the most importing is to be fit. Nobile Kiteboarding presents trending with Darek Garko: Dynamic stretching - recommended for person engaged in extreme sports. Enjoy and always do that before kite session.

And if there's still time before the sun goes down for an evening session after work there are a few more exercises that might just warm up those problem tendons:

TBH I would do more stretches, if I was not a lazy SOB. Maybe some day.

A very comprehensive stretch video that lends itself to our most unceremonious angles by choice or other..

Most as above will find it too much and not bother, a good recommendation is to think about your 'particular' body part area that plays up occasionally or gets sore after a normal kite session.
Watch the Video and perhaps choose 1 stretch that may be relevant to you and spend a minute or 2 doing it before heading out...
Something is better than nothing.

Also need to take into account basic human physiology.
Stretching cold does almost zero, you have to warm up first for 7-8 minutes.
Once you get into a ‘stretch’ it takes 20-40 seconds (depends upon person, which muscle, overall Health, circulation, etc) for the “motion sensor” stretch receptor to shut off. This is basic protection. So, until that happens you really have not stretched anything. It’s why bouncing a muscle does no good. You can’t make a muscle stretch as much as you let it stretch for max benefit. Get into the stretch and relax for about 30 seconds until you feel the muscle relax, then if you move slowly you can stretch it safely and easily. YMMV

This is true. But i think its better to do dynamic warmup to stretching. But with the whole yoga craze sweeping the kitecomunnity these days it seems like everybody does bridges and splits before entering the water...
Some windmills, lunges etc... you will be fine
Also dont stretch your muscles to long before a a tough kite session or workout because this can lead to injuries. Stretched muscles gets weaker when stretched and more prone to injuries. Its better to do this after the session.

This video includes an irresponsible amount of forward spinal flexion. Not trying to open up a can of worms about the validity of yoga, but if I tried to replicate this regimen I'd end up flat on my back for 2 weeks.

Hi Mossy757, I recommend you do some Pilates if you don’t have any medical reasons preventing you from improving your range of motion, of course.

To the Nobile clip: It is a common misconception that stretching (dynamic or not) is a good way to *prevent* injury. It is not. The best way to prevent injury to muscles and tendons is to warm up with a form of light cardio that also incorporates stretching. For example: leg ups with short bursts of speed. Just stretching is only beneficial *after* your workout while your body temperature is raised but it does nothing for you if you’re body is cold before you’re about to do whatever exercise you’ve got planned. This goes for all forms of sport.

That being said, for water sports like kitesurfing you’re really only in need of decent core strength and a good range of motion. Something like Pilates, regular swimming or similar low impact is more than enough to remain ‘kite fit’.
