You need structure to your week. Map your days and align to your training phases.
A plan is organised to build progressively – skills, fitness and mental skills.
What is the plan is set to achieve? Strengths, weaknesses or a race event and a peak?
35:30 General preparation times of year are different from specific preparation. More flexibility is possible. But stick to the sequence.
37:00 Varying the plan (how and when). We keep sessions to 60 minutes in the Faster Masters Rowing training plan so consider your days. If you are tired or under-recovered you should vary the plan.
39:30 What to do when life or the weather gets in the way of your plan. Wait a day. If you are injured or sick, be conservative and rest.
42:00 When it’s NOT OK to vary the training plan. coming into a peak event, the taper is designed to restore your muscle glycogen to its full levels. This takes 7 – 10 days. Too much work will hinder this and you won’t get a peak performance.
45:00 What to do when your crew is on a different program. don’t overdo the intensity if you combine programmes. Can you blend the club team boats into your programme?
