Venue: Fitness Studio, Gurney Tower
Many people have wrong concept on dragon boat like dragon boat only use strength to paddle, dragon boat use arms only and etc. In fact, dragon boat use whole body muscle group not just forearm or back muscle group. Dragon boat is also a endurance sport not just strength exercise.
Today, we gather at Fitness Studio Gym at Gurney Tower to build not only strength and also flexibility. We focus on core strength which is the abdominal and back big muscle group. Without core strength, sport performance definitely reduced.
Follow by legs raised. This exercise focus on lower abdominal. Those with 1 layer of belly fat it hard as the lower abs don't have the strength to lift up the legs. For those who can't feel burning while doing it, try to increase the repetition or add weight at anckles. No mercy to the belly fat, burn them off....!
After that, we do stretching.
Due to bad posture, some people hunch. This exercise help to correct your posture by sitting upright and tall.
Feel like building your core strength and flexibility? check our training schedule at What next? session.

Chinese philosophy: The only thing that no change is changed. Why I come out this at starting line in the post? When I look at the old pictures, it remind me how was the good old days in PFSC especially on the members.
Quah (Wearing the blue singlet) - inactive now. used to be first paddlers and good in running. Now probably focus more on business and new members in his family
Khoo (cheer in tomato) - still in physical training but can't commit in race as he is tied the knot with girl that we never see before....:-p congratulation
Satay (Front, shirt in yellow + red) - From boyfriend quickly upgraded to Husband 2.0 and now Father 3.0....congrat :-)
Sunny Kok (half face at the side) - inactive. Not sure what is the reason that he quit and now focus on bicycle. Hope he active again in DB as he is strong paddler.
William Ung (shirtless) - Shoulder Injured at the moment, promise to join back when ready.
Ho (White shirt behind William) - change his job hat and now police inspector who based in KL.
Kiefer (Last in the row) - inactive. quite new in the team and can't sustain. welcome to join again :-)
More member: Shinji, Ang, Michael, Apple, Tan, OJ.
We seldom do physical training at rowing site. I think this is the time we go for run before go down to water, else we would wear sandals rather than sport shoe.
cleaning dragon boat after physical training. We wash like a team.....haha. (a few wash, some stand, many talk and 1 taking photo :-p)
after that, makan time. White Fungus soup and double chocolate cake....it is pretty awesome that Mei Ling prepare that food. You don't get to eat something like this over physical training.
This is the best one - the Fruit Jelly. Fruits more than jelly, can't eat it any where else. Only in PFSC by Chung Mei Ling. it is one of her signature dessert. Can you tell how many type of fruits are there?
Another Chung Mei Ling delicacy. Sour Plum tomato for chilling effect. Recipe from Chinese pharmacist. Stuff 1 sour plum in heart of tomato and store in freeze for good 4th days and you get the best balance of sweet and sour taste.
We miss the old members and also we stay for the food....nah! we love the food as bonus. Most important, we stay for the team.
Best part of Dragon boat competition is always end with celebration dinner. This is when you party with all the team both local and international. The celebration party for the 1st club crew championship for commonwealth countries was held at Bayview beach resort on 25th July 2010.
I didn't attend but we send representative on behalf :-p
I know...I know. I has been lazy and not keep the blog up-to-date. This event is 2 years back and 2012 almost come to the end. If I post recent event, then you may not see what happen for the last 2 years.
Don't confuse the Club Crew World Championship with this Club Crew Championship for Commonwealth Country. one is CCWC and the other is CCCCC. Penang hosted CCWC in 2008 follow by Macau in 2010 and Hong Kong 2012. CCCCC 1st hosted in Penang with the commonwealth country only.
Just to let you know, we never miss any event hosted in Penang as we're home team.
At least 10 commonwealth countries participate in 1st CCCCC, it is big event in 2010 after CCWC on 2008.
