In the last Strength Coach Roundtable, rowing strength coaches Will Ruth, Blake Gourley, and Joe Deleo discussed strength training specific to rowing performance. You can catch up on it here if you missed it.

In this month’s Roundtable, we’ll talk strength training for injury prevention. What are some common rowing injuries that strength training can reduce? What are some specific ways we can alter training to reduce injury? How are some rowers currently strength training that may actually INCREASE their risk of injury?

Blake Gourley will also share his personal story of his own career-ending back injury and how he now works with rowers to try to prevent it from happening in other people.
