Ladies Night

Well that's not entirely true...for a start it was morning and secondly I wouldn't go so far as to call them ladies.


The 'ladies' in the midst of their rowing test.

Too many female athletes are too 'mono paced' they do plenty of work on their conditioning but not enough on their strength and power. One of the reasons I enjoy working with female athletes is because proper strength training can make such an enormous difference to their performance.

Have a look at the girls results below...they are 6 efforts....each one a maximal effort with only 30 seconds recovery between efforts.



I would always rather a massive first score and 5 poor scores following than 6 good scores. Endurance and and sprint repeatability is a lot easier to come buy than absolute strength and pure power.


Power training comes in all different shapes and forms.
