The Strength Coach Roundtable hosted a monster of a podcast about performance psych for rowing as we went nearly 90 minutes straight and all felt like we still had more to talk about. Will, Blake, and Joe were joined by guest Sara Hendershot for a discussion of performance psychology in rowing and how you can use mental skills in your training. Think about it this way–if you had to put a number on what percent of rowing is mental, what would it be? Now, do you spend anywhere close to that amount of time or attention actually training your mental skills? Hopefully this will give you the tools to put mental skills training into practice!
