Welcome to the 10-week progression designed for dragon boat paddlers. The intention of this training is preparation. Although we work with heart rate zones (HRZ) and we are training them in each session I encourage the use of other cardio equipment such as an elliptical, swimming or rowing machine when doing a fitness program to provide cross-training. This just keeps us from overusing paddling muscles and prevents injury! The 3 forms of cardio mentioned use full body or both the upper and lower body as we do in paddling dragonboat.
10 video learning drills
2000m, 500M and 200M focused training
Progressive in DB distances
Intended to begin heart rate zone training for peaking
MEASURE EVERY SESSION
The only way to know we are improving our skills or progressing our training is to measure the following. Please track the following criteria in each session:
Inside the program, you will find video lessons of the drills. Each workout has written content to accompany the drills. Although the workouts are in progression the drills can be used independently.
