Hey All,

A friend of mine hurt his back last week and it inspired me to do a little thing on Atlantic Kayaker about how to land flat safely/properly! Check it out:

Hey Kelsey, if you have any info on off-season dryland training that someone like me (older, but still paddling) can do to have a strong back before the season begins I would appreciate hearing it.

Dry Land Training

Hey Bryan,

Sorry I am by no means an expert in dry land training/back exercises...maybe talk with a personal trainer or someone of that nature. I'd explain your situation and exactly what it is you're doing and hoping to achieve. Often they can give you some exercises or a program that you can do on your own after one visit.

Hope this helps,
