Surfing And Eccentric-less Volume


In my younger years I grew up Surfing, swimming and playing water polo. Thus my Lats/Back have always been under a lot of stimulation. Its well developed and could possibly be over developed to arms and chest…who knows.

Question is: A) The surfing paddle, is pretty much a lat pulldown eccentric, with some tris and chest involved. That said if I’m surfing a couple days per week with 1-2 hours interval paddling. Should I remove the lat pull eccentrics from my workouts, and even possibly stop training lats for a while? Or will the rest of the body “catch up” and just continue with all forms of Lat involvement workouts and surfing???


B) I shouldn’t give a rats ass.
