You know you’re a real paddler when..

People tend to ask us,”what got you into dragon boat,what’s so special about it?”

Well,certainly the name itself “Dragon Boat” is pretty cool and it catches the eye,but let’s be real for a second.When you just start trainings ,you will be a but weirded out to how you will have to actually synchronize with other 19 people..also,your clothes get wet! Dang..you forgot your hat,and it’s 40 degrees outside! What else can get in your way..

But..you know you’ve become a real paddler when you get comfortable around your team,you get yourself a ‘bum mat’,some gloves maybe, a hat, an extra shirt! And of course,you buy yourself a paddle and take of it like its your baby..but that’s not it! You learn to synchronize with others,balance,listen to the rhythm of the drums,the sound of the waves,the muscles you are using,and most of all,the concentration you give in this 2-hour training.

The perfect nutrition for a paddler

819 views

We have recently asked the coach of the team,Djordje Pavlovic, “ how do you keep in such good shape all these years and still have strength to paddle?”

He told us “easy,i am a vegetarian. But that’s just me. Everyone has a different view on nutrition in athleticism,so it always depends on the person.”

So he explained to us that not always do we have to stick to proteins and shakes and gym and all that to become “buff”. A real athlete should consider eating as much carbohydrates as he/she can; proteins are essential, weather it’s meat or cheese or fish, all these are essential.

Furthermore,exercise might actually be the most important part of staying in shape,so keep paddling! Hit the gym as well once in a week,it won’t kill you!

To sum up,as a spartan you should know by now what kind of food really helps you stay strong,healthy and motivated. So it’s not too late to make yourself a dietary program!
