High Quality Land Training: Developing Athletic Rowers

How do we develop rowers’ ability to transfer their force and power effectively and efficiently? How do we ensure those rowers are able to tolerate the physical demands of rowing and maximise their time spent training?


The British Rowing High Quality Land Training Workshop provides coaches with the tools to make rowers’ land training as effective as possible, reducing the risk of injury and improving the potential for performance on the water. It covers the key principles of good movement and conditioning for rowers and how to apply them, directly relating these areas of development in the gym to performance on the water.
