No doubt, the best way to get fit for a sport is by doing the sport. This is especially visible with (indoor) rock climbing. I see super-fit dudes come into the gym, fall off cause they have no finger strength/tendon development and ask what training they can do to improve it. They want some kind of machine or weights to train with. The only answer is climb more!MACTNKA wrote:You'll get fit kiting. No need to worry about that. If I were you i would start triathlon, cause that's the only known way to restore bone density. After 25 you start losing muscle, immune system strength and bone density. A couple of ironman a year should counter all of that. Other than that, don't fall:)
I never thought about that, maybe my expectations are too high. It was balls to the wall, for sure, like this http://vimeo.com/50105473 but twice as big (I'm not in the vid but Gilgo is where I spend most of my time). Not very easy to ride relaxed. I admit, I like to ride powered. Still, 3 hrs water time on a given day seems like a kind of limit for me, regardless of conditions.plummet wrote:Well i think a 3 hour session in 25 knot head high with shore break and washing machine chop flying a 12m is worthy indeed. Perhaps your expectation is too high?
Kiting is a sport that you can blow your self out in less than an hour or be able to kite endlessly depending on how powered you are an how agressive you fly.
Using the above 25 knot 12m example. That is balls to the wall powered. You will be worn out very fast. Swap that out for an 8m and ride some waves more leasurely and you will be able to fly for hours for the same effort.
