Threshold Intervals are a great way to develop your kayaking fitness. This session is great for building your threshold capability and is very time efficient if you have little time to be on the water. This session is perfect for someone training for the Coast to Coast
Each Tuesday I will be posting the Tuesday Kayak session that you can do to enhance your kayaking. See a previous post about training intensity (levels) to know how hard to work.
3x 5min Threshold Intervals
- 10min WU Level II;
- 3x 5min Level IV, 1min Level II RI;
- 10min CD Level II;
- 10min Stretching
As this is a fitness session you will get a great benefit for your fitness by doing this on flat water. Which is different aim from skill development which you will get from practising in white water or on the course.
The warm up should be done at an intensity that is steady but not over consuming at Level II for ten minutes.
The main set is made up of three reps at Level IV for five minutes duration. Between each rep paddle gently at Level II for one minute.
The Cool Down (CD) is at a low intensity, paddling (Level II) for a minimum of ten minutes.
Finish with 10 minutes stretching to assist with the recovery.
