What are our Coaching Philosophies?
Since 2008 we have coached our paddlers on the MAF Method with amazing year on year results. Not only have we taught paddlers, surf life saving clubs and general athletes a better way to train, we have also produced Australian and World Champions as well as coaching 40+ male and female paddlers to make their first National Teams.
What is the MAF Method?
Put simply, it's breaking your training speeds down into three speeds. First speed is your slow twitch speed (ie 85%), second is your fast twitch speed (105%) and the Maximal speed. With this information you train within the 80/20 rule. Meaning your training 80% of your time at the 85% speeds and 20% of you time at the 105% / Max speeds. In addition to this, we follow the 180-age rule as well.
How do you work this out?
We ask you to do a Time Trail over a specific distance each 4-6 weeks. Once you have a time for the Time Trail, you simple put the time into our Paddle 2 fitness Speed Calculator. This will give you your 85% and 105% training speeds for the next 4-6 weeks. Once you have trained at these speeds for this period, we ask you to do the Time Trail again and enter the new time into the Speed Calculator.
