Snowy wonderlands, difficult commutes, and cozy moments wrapped in blankets with hot cocoa. For KAYAK FISHING TEAM fishermen, however, it marks the end of the fishing season—a chance to take a break after months of chasing fish. Those long hours on the water, early mornings, and the relentless pursuit of becoming better anglers accumulate both physical and emotional stress.


Physical rehabilitation during the off-season is crucial. Just like professional athletes, F3 KAYAK FISHING TEAM need to address any aches and pains. A year of paddling can lead to various issues, especially if pre-existing conditions are left untreated. Common complaints include lower back and hip pain, elbow and wrist discomfort, and shoulder and knee issues.

 While I’m not a licensed therapist, I recommend considering a free examination and consultation at a physical therapy clinic. They can guide you toward a healthier, pain-free season ahead. Remember, taking care of your body now ensures a stronger start and finish next year!

Certainly! It’s great that you’re considering physical therapy clinics for consultation. They can provide personalized guidance based on your unique needs. Now, let’s delve into some common issues F3 KAYAK FISHING TEAM face and explore simple techniques to address them.

1. Fisherman’s Elbow (Golfer’s Elbow)

  • Symptoms: Pain on the inside of your elbow near the funny bone, often felt after casting.
  • Cause: Inflammation of the muscle connecting the elbow to the wrist.
  • Remedy:
    • Sit with your forearm braced on a bench or your thigh, palm facing up. Flex your palm toward your body, then slowly relax it back to its original position.
    • You can do this exercise without weights, but if you choose to use them, keep it light. We’re aiming to build muscle endurance, not set records.
    • I recommend using a 10-pound dumbbell and doing sets of 3×10 or 3×15 per session.
  • Get Comfy: Lie on your back, arms stretched up toward the ceiling, and knees bent at a 45-degree angle (like you’re sitting in an invisible chair).
  • Opposite Limbs: Here’s where it gets goofy (but effective!): Lower one leg slowly while simultaneously lowering the opposite arm above your head (left leg down, right arm down).
  • Return to Base: Bring both limbs back to the starting position.
  • Repeat the Swap: Now switch—lower the other leg and opposite arm.
  • Mind Your Back: As you do this, pay attention to your back. Keep it in contact with the ground; no arching is allowed!
  • Sets and Reps: Aim for 3 sets of 10 reps (or 3 sets of 15 if you’re feeling strong). But hey, even 1 or 2 sets is a great start!

Now, let’s focus on two superhero moves: 

The Lateral Raise and The Front Raise. These can be done standing or sitting, but I prefer to channel my inner superhero while standing.

  1. Lateral Raise:
    • Grab some lightweight canoe (or pretend you’re holding two invisible pineapples).
    • Start with your arms down by your sides.
    • Slowly lift your arms sideways, like you’re about to take off (but not quite—I mean, we’re not aiming for orbit here).
    • Stop when your arms are parallel to the floor, forming a majestic T-pose.
    • Lower them back down gently. You’re not dropping a mic; you’re nurturing those shoulders.
  2. Front Raise:
    • Same deal—weights in hand (or maybe just your enthusiasm).
    • This time, raise your arms straight in front of you.
    • Imagine you’re lifting a treasure chest full of gold coins (or just regular coins; we’re not picky).
    • Again, lower those arms like you’re tucking that treasure away.
  1. Get Ready: Imagine you’re about to lift a treasure chest full of gold coins (or regular coins; we’re not picky). Your hands should be in front of you, with the backs of your hands facing the direction you’re looking.
  2. Lift Off: Slowly raise your hands, like you’re reaching for the stars (or the ceiling). Keep going until your arms are parallel to the floor, and those weights are out in front of your face.
  3. Return to Base: Lower your hands back down gently. No mic drops here—just a controlled descent.
  4. Switch It Up: To give your arms some elbow room (literally), alternate between left and right. It’s like a graceful dance for your shoulders.
  5. Weights and Form: Stick to 3 sets of 10 or 12 reps for these exercises. Start with light weights. Over time, you can gradually increase the weight but always focus on maintaining proper form. Trust me, trying to lift a 45lb dumbbell like you’re launching a rocket to parallel can lead to shoulder strain.
  1. Yoga Time: Consider adding basic yoga routines to your day. Yoga is like a magical blend of stretching, balance, and rediscovering muscles you forgot existed. It’ll help with your rehab and make you a more stable kayaker. Plus, it’s like a mental spa—being mindful of your body during yoga can translate to better awareness of the water.
