ABOUT THE PROGRAMMES
There are 6 and 12 week programme options available. These are based on periodisation of the rowing calendar. This is to ensure that you peak at your target race. Each block is set-up to prioritise an area of fitness or strength.
Heart rate monitors are a must for the majority of the training. Recommended is Polar. Ensure you have a chest strap heart rate monitor for accuracy.
It is important that feedback from the training is regularly received. A weekly catch-up and summary of training is recommended. This can be done by email, text, Skype or FaceTime.
In the 80s, 90s and early 2000s, nutrition was not considered an important factor on rowing performance. However, as sport science evolves, so does training and nutrition. The timing of food intake plus macronutrient breakdown is prioritised with the programme. Nutritional guidelines will be included throughout the training period.
