I’m often surprised how some (newer) Masters rowers talk about rhythm as if it were an elusive butterfly that one must “catch.” Rhythm in rowing, also referred to as swing, is not as difficult as you might think. Sure, it’s something to learn and master, but it’s not magical and definitely not a virus that you can catch.
When speaking of any type of racing, one thing is certain—just getting ready for the race already takes a lot of work, and that’s especially true in rowing head racing events.
Today’s article is about the common frustrations Masters rowers feel about membership and possible solutions to these issues. I know that everyone in the Masters rowing groups is proud to be there, but there are issues that can and should be addressed.
Hi everyone, it’s Petra again, and today, I want to address everyone who has high hopes for their racing endeavors this season.
Hi friends! It’s your Masters coach Rebecca talking about balance. No, I don’t mean balance as in how to balance the shell, but how you can manage everything in your busy life.
Hi everyone, it’s your masters rowing coach Rebecca here, and today, let’s talk about a subject that affects every rower but few like to talk about—learning a new technique.
Here’s a problem faced by nearly every woman (and more than a few men) training as a masters rower: How do you balance home life and training when you have small children? By small children, I’m referring to those 10 and under, but it could also be older children who cannot be left unattended for whatever reason.
Masters rowers all have one thing in common, we lead busy lives. Some of us are homemakers, others are retired, but many of us are working full-time jobs.
Perhaps one of the most difficult tasks is choosing your crew lineups for regattas.
Compared to other groups, Masters rowers get far less coaching compared to other training groups. There are good reasons behind this, but it still makes you wonder why Masters rowers always seem to get pushed to the back of the line, so to speak.
Hi friends. It’s Rebecca again, and today, I want to address something very few people talk about—adapting rowing.
Hello friends, I have an interesting question for you.
Hello rowers! This is Rebecca Caroe, and today I want to talk about easing back into your training after winter break. I bet you are bored of erging and longing to hear the water again, feel a real oar in your hands, and get your body back into real rowing motion.
