This was my first year back in karting after a 15 year leave. I am only in a 206 currently.
I did a little running before the season started and got to where I was ok when it was cool out. Mid summer came around and I was just beat. The final straw was getting out 6-8 seconds on second place and losing it and the lead in the final 9 laps. I was so out of shape since I quit running a couple months prior.
I started running and watching what I was eating and got the weight off, I actually have lost 21# now. The last race I was just a little fatigued. It was mostly my arms and shoulders that were getting to me.
This week I decided I wanted to start going to the group classes at the gym. I went to a class called boot camp last night that did a lot of arms/chest/back and some cardio. So I am planning to continue that but I want to hear other good ideas on what might be better to work in that is more kart specific. Reading through some old threads I see a few guys list rowing.
So whats your go to when trying to stay fit for racing.
