All young men dream about fitted and toned body, but far not everyone is successful in gaining great shape. But what about staying in a perfect shape even after 50? Now, we’ll reveal you the secrets of how surfing legend Laird Hamilton manages to look pumped and toned at 52.
According to the sportsman, to keep body tonus it’s enough to use the simple movements from everyday life like thrust, pushing, squatting, body bending, lunges and twisting. This is a great way to quickly get in shape.
All the listed above are basic human movement since ancient times, so they are quite usual, but at the same time quite effective. This approach allows Laird to treat any physical work like a workout.
Having become more active and doing more repetitions of each of the six movements, Hamilton became more flexible, pumped the muscles and toned ligaments. Doing any set of exercises the surfer works on a whole group of muscles, but not trains only isolated one. And major bonus: you can perform these exercises anywhere you want. Even on the road
This set that does not require special equipment is power and cardio practice at the same time can make one strong and sturdy. Within a minute Laird Hamilton makes as many these exercises as possible, doing as many reps as he cans: push-ups, pull-ups, jumping from a sitting position, “good morning” (this is when you with your hands behind a head bend at the waist forward with a flat back), lunges and knees pulling to a chest in the prone position.
Rest is also very essential for muscles growth, so Laird advises to rest for a minute and then repeat the cycle two more times.
To achieve better results the surfer performs 10 repetitions of each of the following movements: bench press barbell over his head, pull the dumbbells in a bent position, goblet squats (hold a dumbbell at chest level and squat as deeply as possible), kettlebell swings, step-ups and a Russian twist. This cycle is repeated three times for.
5 minutes for this all? How’s that?
Bear step (walk on all fours with straight legs) combines traction, tremors, lunges, squats, bending and twisting. Get down on all fours as if you are a primitive animal and move forward. Laird Hamilton says that doing this exercise for 5 minutes brings real results.
