Our suggestions for quick rowing fitness gains

As far as fitness goes, the best thing you can do is running or body weight circuits.  Until you are skillful in a rowing or sculling boat, it’s hard to get fit while training on the water.

For running, find a hill and sprint up it and jog slowly down – try to run up for 1-2 minutes and do this 8 times to start and build up to longer sprints or more repetitions, or both. Or you can run up stairs – is there a multi-storey car park nearby as several flights of stairs works just as well. If you get fit enough, go running up them – two stairs at a time.

You can also do body weight circuits like these ‘home exercises’ we put up in a blog post about how to stay fit when away from home
