  Kayak training plan

There isn't a lot of good training plans out there for kayak racing, so I decided to create one. Find it here:

http://gearreportcards.com/6-weeks-race-shape-kayak-race-training-plan/

Keep in mind this is geared towards the more advanced crowd, but I'm currently working on an entry-level plan. The site itself is also new, so check back regularly because we'll be adding content daily.

Feedback is always welcome and encouraged!

  Good work, Finney.

I'd seen your post on boatertalk. I remember from my rowing and sculling days back in the 60s, that there was almost a complete lack of training schedules and methods in print, and while sculling, I couldn't afford coaching.

In flat water/surf ski/sea kayak racing there's much more emphasis on paddling, intervals, technique and less on weight training.
As a mid pack surf ski paddler I get out 4-5 days a week for a total of 7-10 hours. The advanced paddlers I know train 2x a day, 6 days a week at peak season.
A typical week for a mid pack guys is: 1 long, 1 tempo or time trial, 2 technique, 1 interval, 1-2 weight sessions.

No it's not a dirty word, it all about
training to withstand the lactic acid build up.

A fartlek is a type of outdoor training
that means "speed play" in Swedish.
