Abstract

In flat-water sprint kayaking, accurate quantification of athletes' on-water intensity is challenging due to the influence of varied environmental conditions on traditional training load methods. This thesis provides novel insights and practical recommendations for quantifying on-water sprint kayak activity using traditional and contemporary training load methods to better understand the demands of competition in still-water environments, and to improve training monitoring and prescription inflowing river environments. Overall, this work highlights the utility of novel paddle technology measuring real-time power output as a direct and immediate assessment of on-water intensity, potentially enhancing coaches' capacity to prescribe effective on-water training programs.
