Sea Kayak Exercises

Sea kayak exercises should build endurance, muscle, balance and coordination. Overall, use lighter weights and do more repetitions. For each exercise do three sets of twenty repetitions and rest just long enough between each set to catch your breath. Don’t rest more than two minutes in between sets.

Repeat three times a week and make sure your diet has enough protein in it.

Below is a good checklist, but if you want a more detailed description of sea kayak exercises and routines seakayaker.com is the place to go.
