NK SUP Training Plans
Whether you're looking to place first in a paddling race, or simply improve your stand up paddling technique and speed, it is important to start off with a plan. In order to provide you with all of the tools needed to achieve your goals, NK has partnered with Mick Di Betta, head of Paddle Power Training and Chase Kosterlitz, SUPAA President and author of SUP Training the Smart Way, to offer free beginner SUP training plans.
These plans are designed to work cohesively with your SpeedCoach SUP 2 with Training Pack, and we have outlined each workout in a way that can be easily programmed into your SpeedCoach unit. By utilizing the SpeedCoach as a SUP training tool, you allow yourself to focus on your paddling performance and workout, while the SpeedCoach monitors your distance, speed, glide, heart rate and stroke rate. This crucial performance data is visible real-time during your workout and can also be uploaded to a computer for post-workout review.
In addition to a detailed stand up paddling training program, these plans provide paddle boarding tips that can help you improve your form to help you paddle harder, faster and more efficiently so you can be prepared for your next SUP race!
In five years of SUP competition Chase Kosterlitz has multiple championship titles and many wins across the United States and around the world. Chase is currently ranked 13th in the world according to the SUP Racer World Rankings.
Chase is the founder and president of the Stand Up Paddle Athletes Association where he enjoys helping SUP racing grow through athlete and race official educational programs.
