Row4Victory get some coaching from British Rowing!

Date: Friday December 15, 2017 at 12:53pm


Whilst the 2017 flotilla got started for this year’s Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, Fraser had the absolute pleasure to spend a day in the company of British Rowing’s Master Coach, Eric Kent, on the Go Row Indoor Workshop. It was a brilliant opportunity to get some top level technique pointers and a great insight in to running a circuit training session for a group on the Concept 2 rowing machines. 

The group also learned how to teach proper form and technique to newbies as well as helping more seasoned Erg users to refine their technique and achieve a more effective, economical and powerful stroke. Most importantly for the Row4Victory team they also learned how to avoid injury and how to stay safe. The lads will have to all keep an eye on each other at sea to make sure they all stay safe as form is sure to slip when the weather is rough and exhaustion sets in but it’s precisely in these tough times that injury is most likely to occur. 

With just 12 months to go until the 2018 race the lads are going to be spending more and more time in the gym and on the rowing machines and you couldn’t ask for better instruction on how to make the most progress possible than you get from Eric and the British Rowing team, thanks for the excellent day and the top tips, rest assured Eric, we shall be cracking walnuts with every stroke.
