Train Movements, Not Muscles

As you already know I am an advocate of using compound movements when working out and avoiding single joint, isolated exercises.  I prefer this type of training because of the many benefits of this type of training (increased caloric expenditure, increased workout efficiency, etc.)

This type of training is especially beneficial to wakeboarding because, while wakeboarding you are using multiple muscle groups at the same time. 

In order to improve your wakeboarding, you need to train the same way that you ride.  This is done by performing training that involves the activation of multiple muscle groups simultaneously.

Here is a great video that talks about using your whole body to workout and not to be worried about isolated movements and exercises.  The video is nice and short, a little over 1 minute long.  Click the link below, take a look at the video, and let me know what you think.
