row machine and peloton. The rowing machine will make your arms a back burn like hell and you will feel the same muscles burning on a big tuna fight. The peloton will strengthen your core, legs, and ass and will also help your stamina. Its rarely the case where some one doesn't have the strength, but more often than not they don't have the endurance. If you can get comfortable rowing and cycling for up to an hour there isn't anything in our waters that can break you.

Another thing to really pay attention to is hydration, sun exposure and sleep. Any one of those out of whack and it wont matter how much you exercise.
Sleep.

That's a biggie for me. I can go without it for awhile, but then I get really cranky puss.

I'll leave that topic for another post :-)

Ease into the pickle juice. Especially if you consume caffeine…. Too much at once equals explosive shits…. Used to play a game with guys at work… but a pickle and an energy drink from the liquor store… everyone eats the pickle drinks the juice and energy drink….. the loser is the last one that goes blast off…. The reason they lose is because there are only some many shitter and they are usually occupied!

When peeps saw the juice the first thing they asked me if it was for a "pickleback" which apparently is a shot of whisky with a pickle juice chaser...

Just straight pickle juice for me

We do 4 three day trips a year on Vagabond. I am on the May trip leaving May 26th thru May 29th. You?

Vagabond carnage at 3 am....with guys on their KNEE's

On our boat, we really see guys get worked by even small fish. Part of it is lack of technique, which we try hard to correct. But it would be wise to start working out or at least minimal exercise before the season starts. I surf, snowboard on occasion and hit the gym once in a while to try to keep in shape. But for sure put on a winter coat each year. I find the hand spring exercisers help as well.

As mentioned this Liquid IV, which you can get at Costco, really helps to stay hydrated. Better hydration less cramps.

I only drink water on those trips, and maybe an occasional wee hour coffee, which makes for a zero balance galley tab at the end of the trip but I make up for it in tip.

I use Ibuprofen PM, or what I call the "blue meanie", to knock my ass out when I want to sleep. And earplugs...

good sleep daily and up to 150 pushups staggered through the day. watch my diet for health reasons and at 56 my waist is now what it was at 22. framing and foundation work never let me get out of shape, just badly damaged and worn out.
