Masters Rowers: add strength training to increase your medal count

I met up with Will Ruth from RowingStronger.com to talk about his new strength training book, Rowing Stronger (vol. 2) and why developing peak power is *critical* for the masters level rower... and it doesn't take as long in the gym as you may think:

If you’ve got the know-how and the tools to create your own strength training plan, pick up a copy of Rowing Strong (2nd ed.) here.

If you’re unsure where to start and would like a program designed specifically for you with the tools you have, contact me today to make an appointment.

Strength training is a fun, dynamic, sometimes misunderstood, and vastly underutilized resource for rowing. The goal is not to “get huge” but to make your body more durable and resilient, and ready to turn on the power in the waning strokes of the race.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
