Has been a while Hope you're well
I wanted to start a topic off about the balancing act of training on the water, off the water and rest in between.
To start things off, here's how I currently train (Its probably also worth mentioning I have an office job, so I'm pretty much inactive whilst at work).
Basically I try to train (on water) 1-3 times a week, I try to get out both days on the weekend, and maybe an afternoon off/evening in the summer months.
If I manage to get out 3 days a week (which is quite rare) I wont bother doing any gym work at all, as I'll likely be sore in one or more ways
If I get out only once or not at all, I'll try and get 1 or 2 sessions in at the gym.
I'm of the opinion that rest is as important as training (perhaps incorrectly so?) - If I'm sore I wont train that part at the gym, and If I've been out on the water a lot, I wont go to the gym at all.
So, am I being lazy? Should I get to the gym more? Or is the balance about right? Its worth mentioning that I'm 37 and no spring chicken anymore
On a similar topic, Is there anything worth doing or worth avoiding doing on the water?
It was mega windy yesterday (35-60mph) and I had to give up on unhooking, so was mainly battling out through the chop and waves, and boosting to see how high I could go Is riding through large chop something that could be considered good for you as it will surely work your stabiliser muscles? or is it something which just causes wear and tear? Similarly for boosting and landing? is this helpful or something which is causing damage?
On a day where I'd be able to do some unhooking, I assume loading, popping, practicing airpasses is all good for a targetted workout and gaining control and coordination, but are the landings potentially damaging, or are they building up the required strength and stability to take harder landings in future?
I'm also becoming quite a fan of the unhooked kiteloop, which does cause you to drop out of the sky a bit heavier, again is this beneficial? or should you limit the number of these you do in a session (no matter how much you enjoy doing them or want to progress with them?)
Sorry for the big wall of text, I don't do posts by half
