The core of their training regime is based around periodized training and target heart rate zones. This is the same technique used by professional triathletes and marathoners for their training, but it is nicely translated into a practical approach for paddling (both SUP and prone). And these guys have the creds to do this in that Roch Frey (a name many paddlers may know) is a front-running prone paddler who also trains a number of pro triathletes.
Great, easy to read resource that provides all the tools to raise your paddling to another level. Highly recommended.
One of the other reviews here claims that there's more information available on their website. First off, they do provide a TON of information on the site and it's an amazing resource. You could get away with just reading the posts there, but you'd be missing out on how these guys put it all together.
They reiterate the important points so much in the book that you begin to ignore them. THAT'S THE POINT.
Riding Bumps' whole philosophy is "go slow to go fast" and about 99% of paddlers with quietly think to themselves, "Bah, they aren't talking to me, that doesn't apply to me". WRONG! They are talking to you. I had to catch myself multiple times skimming past the "go slow" parts of the book. But it's a crucial component! These guys are top of their sport for a reason.
So the book is great if not for beating you over the head with repetitive information, albeit necessary. You will learn a ton about how to get faster as long as you actually read and apply their methods to your training. I've already noticed a massive improvement in my recovery and my speed in training.
