The Schedule and Start Dates-notice that some coaches do not start next week:
Bob’s session will focus on developing a strong fitness base for the spring season while reinforcing solid stroke fundamentals. Sessions will include a short warm-up and 50-60 minutes of rowing at various intensities. Great opportunity to log meters for the C2 Holiday and January Viertual Team Challenges.
7:30-8:55 pm Wednesday- Abigail–Start November 30
The Wednesday classes will be focused on two goals: (1) Preparing for Mid-Atlantic Erg Sprints; and (2) Preparing for spring season erg tests. The classes will be a combination of sprint and cardio work that is designed to prepare you for sprints (2k) and longer pieces (5k, 6k, 30 minutes). Heart rate monitors will be highly recommended.
6-6:55 am Thursday- Guennadi–Starts on December 7th
Thursday sessions will be a 2 x 20 min row, alternating steady state with technique drills. Intensity will vary from 70 to 80% of one’s max heart rate. Therefore, having a heart rate monitor would be helpful. For those who will have time, each session will end with one core circuit consisting of seven stations. Core circuit will take approximately 15 minutes.
Due to the extensive, expensive cold weather damage over the years, the bathrooms and showers will be locked and drained of water by once the weather turns freezing. The pipes have burst in previous years and it’s simply unsustainable to keep them operating in the freezing weather. The port-a-potties in the parking lot are still available. Please remember to bring your own water from home.
