Better Boat Run

Increasing your distance per stroke by five centimeters (or about two inches) will take you 30 meters farther at the same stroke rate—or about 3.5 boat lengths.

The Power of Positive Thinking 

Develop a mindset oriented to the joy of rowing and the love of the challenge. Focus your mind on the pleasure of going for it, instead of worrying about avoiding errors and failures, which often leads to exactly that—errors and failures.

The Art of Tapering

The final week before your race is all about staying rested and getting prepared mentally. Being rested is a big component of mental toughness.

Perfecting the Pause

Pause drills can be part of a strength-endurance session with a focus on single-stroke power, a regular part of your warm-up, or adapted for the indoor rower.
