It is hard to do strength/speed workouts in the pool (except for English gate) if it is crowded. I like to do stroke drills for the smaller arm muscles -- draws, skulls, reverse strokes, left and right cross-bow in kayak, etc. All of these can be done with no feathering or feathering, and with wide or narrow strokes/draws. Equally important, they can be done with the boat flat, edged toward the paddle side, and edged away from the paddle side. A timing drill is to do four rolls in a row, starting and ending with paddle across the deck. Fun to watch this. Do fast stroke drill for a continuous 30 minutes and see how your muscles hold out. Add cross-bow for flexibility. Jon
