Ergers in action!
How it works...There will be great flexibility for everyone to work towards accomplishing his or her goals, whether to prepare for indoor competition, improve overall fitness or get ready for the spring season when some of us will be back on the water. We will be working out on the rowing machines, or “ergs” mostly.
You can develop skills that transfer to the water. You will increase fitness, benefit from coach direction and enjoy seeing your fellow scullers through our indoor workouts. Even while on your own machine, we can refine your timing so we can effectively move the boat when we get back on the water.
A punch card system will be in place, meaning that you can pick and choose the days and workouts that you would like to participate in. In general each day of the week will have a particular type of workout. Some days will be lower intensity, and will have more coaching and feedback. Other days will be higher intensity. Each of the weekday sessions will be between 60 minutes, including warm-up, workout and cool-down.
Get the best of both worlds; each group member will be individually assessed and have a program created just for him/her, but will also enjoy the benefit of working with a group of others with similar goals. Having a support system and someone to hold you accountable is a huge factor in success.
If you're new to the ergs, your first couple of sessions will be spent getting used to rowing on the machines. We’ll be starting out slowly to make sure the technique is good, and to ease into the heavier work to prevent injury. Soon you will be used to how hard you can pull over a period of time. We will be looking to baseline your fitness, and will use that baseline to plan individual workouts over the winter. We will periodically check your progress to readjust the workouts as you get more fitness.
Most of the workout will be based on time, not distance – so we all start and finish together. You will all be given a desired “split” time to keep during the workout which will be set based on the test you complete.
After the baseline testing, there will be variety in the workout to keep it challenging and interesting.
