Faster Masters Rowing Radio June 2019

 In Faster Masters Rowing Radio

Marlene Royle and Rebecca Caroe discuss food and nutrition for rowers and how to practice racing starts.

Nutrition – from Nancy Clark’s seminar

“Sports Nutrition: Clarifying the confusion about what’s best to eat”.  The link below is to the 5th edition of Nancy’s classic book.  Rowing Chat has an affiliate link code.  A more recent edition will publish on 20th July 2019.

Practicing Racing Starts

  • Start with 3 strokes
  • Build up to 10s
  • Ensure you include starts in your race warmup
  • Set a target race rate you want to hit – and make sure you do it
  • Practice the first 3 strokes – they are slower than you think.
  • Before doing starts in training – do some power strokes to get in the mindset of working hard.
