Default Suggestion on exercise

How does everybody get ready for the season . I don't want to get a bad shoulder or any other injuries because of flyfishing. I've read that use a axe is a good piece of equipment during the off season to strengthen your muscles.

The main thing that I try and do is run. That way my cardiovascular system is working well when I want to hike into a place, fish and hike back out. Other than that I just practice my casting every chance I get. That alone helps with the muscles that I will be using. I was doing pushups and situps but truthfully got out of the habit and stopped. The main thing I think any of us should do is make sure our cardiovascular system is in good standings, so that we do not go out and get into a really bad situation.

can not answer that. I mainly do hiking but I know you could probably mountain bike on roaring fork and some of greenbriar. Bike in to a point chain up your bike and have at it. I would check the local postings on these areas before setting out on the bike though.

thirty minutes on the bowflex five days a week. followed by a one mile bike ride around our neighborhood block. (we live outside of the city limits) tiring but well worth it.

there's on off-season?

weights three days a week and baseball conditioning keep me in fishing shape. Hiking mountains in the summer keeps me in baseball shape.

That's what I'm saying... Personally, I do a fair amount of hiking beyond what I do associated with my fishing which helps stay in shape for the long day hikes and backpacking trips I enjoy doing...

Waterfowling... carrying bag of decoys through the mud while wearing waders and other gear. It's good conditioning for a piddly little fishing rod and flies!
