Physical preparation for the WingFoil
The physical gesture of the Wingfoil
Wingfoiling is a water sport that requires adequate physical preparation, it requires specific training of intensity proportional to the level we want to reach. In this article we will focus in particular on physical preparation for beginners approaching wingfoil for the first time.
If compared to other water sports, it requires medium intensity physical preparation, in fact it requires greater physical effort than kitesurfing but comparable to windsurfing and surfing.
The muscle zones
The muscle areas most involved in the wingfoil are: shoulders, arms, back, abdomen and to a lesser extent the legs. In fact, the traction generated by the wing is supported by the arms which transfer the force to the board through the trunk and legs. Even if the wingfoil in navigation requires an anaerobic effort from the muscles, in the starting phase it needs explosive power for pumping sail and board. The muscle groups involved are the deltoids and upper part of the pectorals, biceps and triceps, trapezius, back and lumbar, abdominal and most of the leg muscles.
So wingfoil is a physically complete sport that involves all the muscles of the body for which we recommend a total body workout.
