Methods and devices for kayak training and/or exercising. One embodiment can use two PVC type pipes (one shorter than the other) in a parallel configuration. A flexible bungee type stretchable cord can be passed through the small pipe and have ends that are each attempted to opposite ends of the larger pipe. Ends of another stretchable cord are each fixable attached to ends of the small pipe with a mid portion of the second bungee cord attached to a fixably nonmoveable member such as a door knob and the like. A user sitting down can grip the larger pipe with both hands spread apart and creating a rowing action with the device so that stretched cords simulate rowing actions such as those used with a kayak. The device can also be used as an exercise device and method to tone muscles such as arm and stomach and side muscles of the user. Another embodiment slidably passes the cord through dual through-holes in the ends of the smaller pipe member, and another embodiment substitutes a stretc
