Timestamps to the show
06:00 This Past Week – what we’ve been doing to advocate for Masters Rowing
Marlene’s coaching correspondence included an athlete who was under-performing and concerned about making progress. What time of day do you train? A busy schedule means you aren’t getting enough sleep. You’re tired. No wonder you’re under-performing.
Book Recommendation The New Toughness Training for Sports James E. Loehr
Try to add 1 hour sleep a night so you get 7 not 6 hours. Take rest days during the week and do strength training.
Have a snack at work 3-4 pm and train at 5 pm when you get home. Then have a lighter dinner and eat a little later so you can get to bed by 11 pm not 12.30 am.
Rebecca’s participating in the Pembroke Virtual Regatta doing 1100 meters four days in a row.
16:00 Scrimmage organisers if you would like to get a checklist ebook on how to organise, get in touch and we’ll publish.
One Sporting World launch auction fund raiser for mental health – it’s live now
The Magic Wand survey – What is the #1 thing you want/need as a masters rower?
21:00 Force Curve Analysis – common observations.
Last third of the drive is not symmetrical on the force curve – you are losing drive suspension
First part of the curve is very sharp – you are kicking the catch
25:00 How does cross training fit into masters rowing?
Include strength training – is it just aerobic or is it everything?
Strength is important – it sustains muscle mass and protein stimulus for both men and women
We don’t insist you do cross training. Does it fit in your schedule? Variety helps alleviate boredom.
Be careful – if it isn’t something you do regularly – the shock to your body can be tough bringing tissue fatigue and possible injury.
36:00 Listener calls – we want to know new topics you’d like to hear on the podcast.
