The New TRX Rip Trainer is a great tool for training the entire body for dynamic rotational movements and metabolic conditioning. I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with the Rip Trainer and the Indo Board using the Indo Gigante’ Cushion. I find it very useful and relevant to training for stand up paddle surfing. The unstable movement of the Indo Board is very similar to standing on a stand up paddle board, and the torsional strain of the Rip Trainer is very similar to the work you do with a paddle in the water. It is a great way to train for your paddling when you can’t get to the water.
