Welcome to week two of the SufGirl Surf Fitness Training Plan. If you are not used to core training the plank will be a challenge. The Power stroke set will get your paddling muscles going and the swims are great all round. The burpees are great cardio and will increase your explosive jump up which is usually the first thing to suffer in the winter and can be a spoiler when you do catch waves.
