If the catch is the most important part of the paddling stroke,
why not increase your specific strength to this area?
CatchForce Kayak provides the athlete with a flat and level work platform; the travel, tension cords and railed incline providing resistance – reproducing the mechanics and effect of pulling the paddler [boat] past the water – using the immersed blade as the “anchor-point.”
CatchForce educates the muscle memory of the paddler to learn the all important technique of top arm resistance and lower arm / upper body / trunk rotation and mobilization. Resistance is increased by:
- Additional weights to the smooth running boat platform;
- Increasing the strength of the resistive bungees, - or
- By attaching the boat platform to a standard “weight stack”.
The Kayak Version seat can be replaced by any Nelo standard or rotating seat for personalcustomization. CatchForce is a must for those Kayak Athletes specializing in explosive 200m events, or for those who want to simply improve their “CatchForce”.
