This was introduced in PPG Bible edition 6, but here is the latest advice on before-training exercise.

Here are some basic suggestions:

  • Cardio. Anything that gets you breathing hard for at least 20 minutes helps with endurance, especially running. It’s valuable for kiting—the skill that best predicts success in paramotor (or paraglider) launching.
  • Squats and leg exercises. Good kiting technique involves moving with bent knees which is most closely matched by these exercises. Leg lifts and “core” exercises help with getting into the seat and carrying the motor.
  • High repetitions of light weight dumbell lifts and lat pull-downs will help with arm endurance while kiting. Choose a weight that you can lift at least 10 times.
