Fit to paddle: the paddler's guide to strength and conditioning
Ragged Mountain Press,
1st paperback ed.
Fit To Paddle, the only book if its kind, is a sport-specific conditioning guide designed for use in the home, gym, or on the water. Filled with black & white photographs, Fit to Paddle will provide valuable information to the reader about how to create a personal conditioning program specific to kayaking, canoeing, or rafting. Chapters include: Creating Your Program, Flexibility Training, Sun Salutation, Endurance Training, Strength Training, Medicine Ball Training, Stability Ball Training, and a Word On Nutrition. The book also contains sample workouts for the home, gym, and on the water. Eli Helbert, the two time defending world champion in the sport of open canoe rodeo, has written the preface for the book. A world champion surf kayaker will be writing the foreword. According to the Outdoor Industry Association, there are more than 7.9 million paddling enthusiasts and over 33 million participants in the United States alone. A majority of these paddlers are over the age of thirty - which is the target audience for this book. Like surfing, paddling admits only the fittest athletes to its elite levels, thus creating an enduring demand for a book like this.
