Key points

  • Flat water kayaking is characterised by exceptional demands on upper body performance.

  • When examining the oxygen consumption, it is no- table that although a high value is attainable, they are not quite as high as other sporting events such as road cycling, rowing or running where lower body is dominant.

  • Elite kayakers demonstrate superior aerobic and anaerobic quantities and have reported maximal oxygen consumptions of around 58 ml·kg-1·min-1

    • (4.7

      L·min-1) and lactate values of around 12 mM during laboratory and on water testing.
