January 2022 - 2k prep
Welcome to 2k season. Spending the next 6 weeks prepping for a 2k is a great way to have some focus through the winter, and gain a little more dynamic power. We start off with a little prep work, and a baseline 2k at controlled ratings and pace. Then we'll get into more and more pace work. If you plan to do Crash-B's, get a training partner and do the Category 2/3 work together. Make it competitive vs. your 2k targets. Keep up your strength work right up till the week before Crash-B's.

Coaching Tip - Warming up
A habit that high performance athletes develop to maximize every workout is a deliberate warm up, both on land before heading out to row, and on the water. This habit helps athletes at every level to have the best practice and the fastest race. When you step into a boat and you are warmed up, you’ll row better right off the dock - over a season that adds up to many hours of better rowing.
A good land warm up routine is also the most controllable part of race day, and sets the tone that you are prepared and ready to go. For coaches, the land warm up is the only part of race day that you can observe, and helps keep athletes focused just prior to getting in the boat. Teams can warm up together, adding in exercises or stretches that work best for them
Keep a training journal to jot down your pre-workout/pre-race warm up, then individualize it. You should have a different warm up for a steady state session than for a day of racing pieces. It should include strokes to physically warm you up, as well as drills or actions to solidify technique. Time it so you know exactly how long you have, and if you launch late or have extra time, have a plan for what you would cut out or add. We’ve included a document in the warm up section with some warm up ideas for on the land, and sample water warm ups.
