Strength Coach Roundtable #11: Movement Assessments for Rowing


Rowing strength coaches Will Ruth and Joe Deleo discuss movement assessments for rowing. How can we evaluate an athlete’s movement and use that information in our coaching? We talk application to strength training and rowing training so that you can get the most out of your movement in the weight-room as well as on the water or erg.

This is episode #1 of a new podcast series. From here, we’ll discuss how we strengthen each area of a rower’s body to build a stronger, healthier, faster, better rower. Future episodes will include squat lifts, hinge lifts, core and total body power, and upper body.
