    Just learn to pump that sucker, much cooler mode of transit.

    I actually took up the paddle because I was doing too much conventional longboarding and the asymmetry of it was making my body complain. I still skate normally too.

    So you obviously like sprints then? I'm thinking of adding them into my routine this summer.

    Any thoughts/observations you can share about adding sprints into a routine?

    Paddling looks pretty asymmetrical to me unless you alternate stance or something. I'll take out my slalom board from time to time and pump it around town, this town is flat enough that I don't usually have to put a foot down. But running takes up most of my cross-training time so I don't skate much anymore.

    I alternate both the stance and the side of the board I'm paddling on, so there's 4 different possibilities.

    You are one coordinated guy. I'm really strongly goofy, and switch is just something I never got the hang of much.

    Just for the record, and relevant to the topic of the thread, cardio has several permutations –or stages if you will– depending on your objectives. And in the last several years, it has been studied intensely. Anyone who seeks advice on the topic is welcome to PM me. Or if there is a whole lot of demand, we can make a whole thread or article devoted to it.

    I am too; the way I was able to teach myself the regular stance too was through paddling, because you can get used to riding that way without having to pick up the foot to pump.

    Can you post a link or two here in the thread?

    Normally my cardio consists of training BJJ and striking 1-3 days per week (as time will allow), doing sets of sprints and indian runs 2-3 days per week, and circuit training in addition to my normal fight training and weight training routine.

    Right now though, I am suffering from a horrible back injury and I am a big *****, but instead I do HIIT circuits going for max heart rate on the stationary bike, and I swim after a good workout with weights.

    Sprints are the **** though. Nothing feels better, IMO, except actually training. That and hill runs, just long sprints up a steep incline, with short rest periods.
