Strength Coach Roundtable #15: Joy of Sculling Conference Recap

 In Strength Coach Roundtable

Hosts Joe DeLeo and Will Ruth presented and co-presented at the Joy of Sculling Conference in 2019. Will presented on low back pain and rib stress injury research and takeaways for rowers, rowing coaches, and strength coaches. Joe presented on the history of strength and conditioning training in rowing. Both co-presented “Strength Training 101,” intended for rowers and coaches of all levels to get started and make progress with basic strength training. In this episode, we’ll recap our presentations, do some Q&A with co-host Blake Gourley, and catch up on what we’ve been up to in our coaching, rowing, and learning.
