How to Increase Your Stand Up Paddling Performance Reviews
Great how-to-guide to make your next step in stand up paddling, especially downwind paddling.Suzie has a very good style of writing and explaining.Although I need to say that it will be hard work to practice her fitness tipps. Book is full of exercises for your SUP relevant muscles. Every exercise shown in pictures.I love her insights in the Downwind chapter.
Suzie Cooney is a well known figure in the Stand Up Paddle fitness community, so the minute I saw her new book announced, I purchased it immediately on Kindle to help prepare for the "Round the Rock" SUP race in Seattle which took place the next day. Suzie's detailed, and very easy to understand nutritional information made all the difference in the world with the outcome of my race! — Turns out I was way over fueling come race day and was shocked to see what I actually needed.I would also like to thank Suzie for information I have read nowhere else, and like her book does over and over again, give very simple to understand information that will yield incredible results—Case in point: A VO2max running test one can complete with nothing more than a stopwatch and a neighborhood running track. This test is virtually free and gives an athlete a good picture of where they are in their training, and by the way does not cost $300 - $400 per test.Overall, Suzie's book says, "Let's do this!" and here's a way to do it that is simple to understand AND does not require special tests, machines, and can be incorporated into your lifestyle for very big results to make you a better Stand Up Paddle Racer!Darrell KirkStand Up Paddle the World
After careful research, I discovered "Suzie" via instructional SUP videos on YOU tube. Impressed by her knowledge, can do attitude, professionalism and her ability to teach ; we contacted her in the Fall of 14', had a Skype session and booked a lesson with her as we were going to be in Maui during April 15'. Despite that our arrival was at the beginning of the Downwind season ,Suzie fit us in ,what followed was the best SUP instruction: ideal location, clear instruction, patience, demonstration of technique followed by assessment.Suzie's "Aloha" spirit enabled me to participate in a community paddle that was a few days later..she provided everything ,SUP,paddle, all I had to do was show up: it was a great community event and something we would have never been able to be a part of.The above backstory is to describe Suzie's Book. Reading the book one feels as if you are having a conversation with an experienced friend about SUP. The Title covers it all : increase your core strength : injury, mental toughness,Downwind as it is all there . Want to know how to / about your VO2 Max, motivation drive ,strength & endurance it is all covered so one can understand it . As an older paddler, Chapter 7 brought the SUP experience home for me : Mental Part, I could go on and on but do not want to ruin your fun in reading the book.If a trip to Maui is on your Bucket list , view Suzie's SUP videos on You tube, read her book, e mail /Skype her on developing a SUP plan of action and go have fun.
I downloaded this book as soon as it was available and couldn't put it down. I've trained with Suzie Cooney over Skype and she is the real deal. This book truly has all of her best training tips and techniques in one huge volume. Yes, it's expensive, and yes, you will have to invest in some training equipment to get the most out of it. The balance training chapter alone is worth the price of the entire book. After implementing several of Suzie's SUP training tips a few years ago I won my first local race. It was an amazing feeling, so I know how well her programs work. This book is an excellent reference, especially with all the photographs and emphasis on proper form and technique. Follow Suzie's advice and you will become a stronger, better and faster paddler.
This book is long overdue! This is the first publication I've seen that brings together all of the key elements of standup paddle board racing, training, nutrition and gear overview in one place. What makes this book truly stand out is that is written in a way that will appeal to both the beginning paddle boarder who wants to try SUP racing as well as the experienced one. Suzie's web site has always had great info on taking your paddling to the next level, but to have it all in one place is awesome. While the information is extremely useful, the presentation and the way the book is organized and laid out makes it extremely accessible and user-friendly. This is destined to be the SUP training bible.
This book is blowing me away. Even though I always read ebooks, I was torn between buying the printed or ebook version because I was worried that the ebook wouldn't measure up. Because I didn't want to wait for the mail, I went with the electronic version and frankly, it's the best one I've ever had. I can't believe the quality of the pictures -- even when I zoom, it's pixel perfect (I was showing everybody). I'm only a few chapters in and learning a lot. Suzie doesn't assume the reader knows the basics and actually breaks fundamental concepts down in a way I've never seen. Totally stoked! It's going to be struggle not to move to Maui :)
