Here is the schedule for the squad-wide 2K erg tests. We are not yet sure what we’ll do for those mornings you aren’t testing. Stay tuned for that info. Please be on time for the test. You will be responsible for your own warmup, which should include a 10 minute light run, followed by a 5 minute warmup on the erg that should include 2-3 short 10 stroke bursts at race pace. Following each group, I will require 10 minutes to mark down data, then you will have your five minute warmup. There will be no pep talk prior to the tests.
NOTE: There will be a weigh-in for all novices, plus seniors who did not weigh in prior to the previous test. This will be done in the far corner and monitored by one person only. The reasons for this weigh-in are two fold. One, I need it for data calculation, and two: there are some weight class events in rowing and we want to begin to identify where we are able to place you into crews…and with 75 of you this will be a gargantuan task!
Note that Mike, Peter and I are all very much AGAINST anything influencing weight loss other than usual training and exercise, and we will not ask you—ever—-to lose weight to make a category. Please do NOT alter your eating habits (unless this alteration involves ditching pop/chips/snacks/junk food/sugar—in that case, please feel free to alter those foods as much as possible for the rest of your life!!!). Proper nutrition is absolutely essential in our sport, and with our training regimen, you need to provide fuel for the energy required to train to your optimal performance! Please, if you have any questions about this subject—rowers or parents—ask away. Get in touch with Coach Mike. Or me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
