2020-21 Winter Training

Get fit with AJR: Winter training is to improve our athletes’ fitness and to focus on rowing technique. We will be using all that is available at the YMCA. In addition to erging we will be doing a variety of things including swimming, lifting weights, cycling, running and circuit training. We will be adhering to the Y’s safety protocal which you can read here. Rowers will need to fill out a daily AJR form. 

Learn-to-Row: Athletes new to the sport of rowing will receive Learn-to-Row instruction on the ergs. The emphasis for novice level rowers will be refining their technique while training to improve their fitness, flexibility and strength.
