One thought on “RowingChat with Kiwi Pair – Eric Murray

  1. “The Kiwi Pair doesn’t lift” is often bandied about on the Internet as rationalization for lack of strength training in other rowing programs, elite and otherwise. I’ve only been able to find passing mentions in interviews and articles, so I would be interested to hear his own account. Did he ever do strength training (bodyweight, bands, weights, etc.) in his life or career? Where does strength training fit (or not fit) into his philosophy of rowing training?
