Push Up Progression Ladder

By Greg Finch

You want to accomplish something great for your surfing in the next 4 weeks? Yes of course you do. But words ain't enough. It's all in the action buddy.

Ready to take that action? All right then here you go:

Right now do 15 pushups in the best form you are able. Break them into chunks of 5 or do 'em from your knees if you have to. BUT DO THEM RIGHT NOW.

Don't worry I'll wait................ Great you're back.

Now go to this post and tag me, Greg Finch or @surfstrongfit in a comment that you are starting the Push Up Progression Ladder.

Tomorrow morning do 15 and tomorrow evening do another 15 push ups. Repeat that EVERYDAY for 1 week.

In the second week add 5 pushups for 20 in the morning and 20 in the evening set. Do that EVERYDAY for a week.

Third week it's 25 morning and evening.

Fourth week it's 30 morning and evening.

It will blow you away how powerful this is for your surfing.

At the end of the month go to the same post, comment, and again tag me or @surfstrongfit with your success and I'll give you next steps.

My stamina and paddling are really improved and that allows me to surf longer and stronger


I've noticed a big difference in really two main things. One is my pre-surf warm up gets my body loose and ready to surf. I feel like I'm not step-tripping over to myself as much. Doing those dumb falls that just waste a bunch of waves.

Second my stamina and paddling are really improved and that allows me to surf longer and stronger.

My Surfing Has Improved On So Many Levels


My surfing has improved on so many different levels working with Greg. I have developed much more confidence in the water. I feel more comfortable & strong out there. I can paddle longer, pop-up faster, and turn with more power.

Those aches & pains after a sesh aren't there anymore


It really gave me direction of what to do to get my body feeling better. Some of those aches and pains I would get after a sesh aren't there anymore. I could see my body becoming much more reliable for me because of the exercises and techniques that were taught.

The personal service was awesome! Greg was very knowledgeable and easy to reach whenever. If I ever had a question he was there to help quickly.
