Gelo 3 výživa kĺbov

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jan 4 '15 / 5 Comments

Ahoj moje meno je Peter Csonka a som profesionálny kajakár. Kajakovaniu na divokej vode sa venujem už dlhé roky. Asi ako väčšinu ostatných vrcholových športovcov tak ani mňa neminuli zranenia. Túto sezónu som si už myslel, že sa nič neprihodí, však na koniec sezóny to nie je tak náročné a predsa… Vždy keď to najmenej čakáš tak sa to stane. Na jedných z posledných pretekov tejto sezóny som si pri zle načasovanom zábere vykĺbil rameno. Vykĺbené rameno na divokej vode znamená väčšinou plávanie a teda nechcené opustenie kajaku. Perej, kde som musel vyplávať naozaj patrí medzi ťažšie a plávanie nebolo príjemné.…

Slovak championship

Posted by Peter Csonka / Oct 13 '14 / 5 Comments

These Championships were a bit different as the last ones. The first reason was that the peak of the season was the European Championships here in Slovakia just two weeks before our national champs. And the second reason was that this time it was a part of big festival – Riot river fest. It was a freestyle event where you could find disciplines as the river surfing, BMX, cross fit, freestyle kayak, kayak cross… We were tired from serious training so we wanted to make it more as a fun event. Peter was the main organizer of the kayak part of the event…

Hypofit + BCAA - energicka bomba

Posted by Peter Csonka / Sep 18 '14 / 5 Comments

 Posledné svetové poháre boli pre mňa celkom únavné. Po pretekoch v Usa som hneď pokračoval na ďalsie dva preteky svetového pohára v Španielsku. To vlastne znamená, že skoro celý mesiac v kuse je pretekar na tréningu a pripravuje sa na následovnu súťaž. Je to velmi fyzicky aj psychycky náročné. Keďže na každý z pretekov som musel letieť nemal som možnost toho si veľa so sebou pobaliť. Musel som si dobre zvážiť akú výstroj si so sebou vziať, aby som mal so sebou všetko čo potrebujem, ale aby som sa zmestil do váhového limitu. Okrem svojej vodáckej výstroje a oblečenia som si…

This Europeans was a big challenge for us. It was hold in our "home spot" in Cunovo, Slovakia. We know this place pretty well and was looking forward to host "the big freestyle event" here. The white water course in Cunovo is well know between the slalom paddlers but not many freestylers know that we have a solid playspot here as well. Week before the event it become a very busy. Everybody wanted to paddle and get use to it. It is quite tricky hole, different from other holes, but everything is possible to do there. You could see it as…

Kopava Micellar Casein

Posted by Peter Csonka / Aug 7 '14 / 5 Comments

Ahoj, Moje meno je Peter Csonka. Som profesionálny kajakár a venujem sa disciplíne kajak freestyle. Momentálne som v prípravnom období na vrcholový pretek a to Majstrovstvá Európy, ktoré sa budú konať u nás v Čunove. Toto obdobie pokladám asi za najťažšie z celej sezóny pretože ide do tuhého. Celé dni trávim na športovisku a pretože to je vodný šport to znamená, že vo vode. Kedže na posledných majstrovstvách Európy mi medaila ušla kvôli úrazu na brušnom svale z dôvodu pretrénovania, tento rok som sa rozhodol vyskúšať zlepšiť svoje stravovanie a samozrejme doplnkovú výživu. Jedným z produktov, ktorý som posledný mesiac skúšal…
