Some people asked before, "How does surfing go online? It's amazing hahaha."

In fact, "Be Active" activities such as "virtual tennis, virtual table tennis, and virtual boxing" are the same principle. The fundamental purpose is to let everyone participate and exercise.

Surfing is a combination of dynamic and static sports. For example, standing on one foot, changing the movement of the other foot on the mat, simulating surfing, is a test of balance ability, and can also allow the body to fully stretch.

The action of sticking to the yoga mat is imitating surfing on the surfboard. This action can exercise the back muscles and relieve neuromuscular tension.

Regular exercises of similar movements can stretch the sedentary body, eliminate mental fatigue, and improve study and work efficiency. It's fun and We hope you can try out this new course!

之前就有同学问:“冲浪怎么在网上进行,感觉很神奇哈哈哈”

其实与“虚拟网球、虚拟乒乓球、虚拟拳击”等“Be Active”活动是一个原理,或许都是无实物进行训练,根本目的还是让大家参与进来,活动筋骨。

这是一项静中有动、动中有静的练习方式。比如单脚站立,另一只脚在垫子上变化动作,模拟冲浪,非常考验平衡能力,也能让身体充分地舒展和得到拉伸。

而紧贴着瑜伽垫的动作,是在模仿趴着冲浪,这个动作能够很好地锻炼到背部肌肉,缓解神经肌肉紧张。

经常进行类似动作的练习,让久坐的身体得到舒展,消除脑力疲劳,提高学习和工作效率。感觉很有趣,希望大家能来试试这个新课程!
