Guest Coach Tara Morgan of Seize the Oar Unified Rowing in Seattle, WA, joins the Strength Coach Roundtable for a discussion on strength training for adaptive rowers. In this 45-minute discussion, we talk performance needs, minimizing injury risk, how to structure your training area, making individual adjustments in training, and more! Check the shownotes below for links to instructional videos, sample athlete questionnaire, and workout template.
Blake and Joe are on a few-month hiatus, so Will will run 2-3 episodes on a different format and a few guests with a different format until they return.
Guest Coach Tara Morgan is the Founder and Head Coach for Seize The Oar. Seize The Oar was founded in 2013 with one athlete and no equipment and the program has grown to serve hundreds of athletes needing adaptation. Rowing is her passion, inclusiveness is her goal.
Seize The Oar founded Ring Of Fire Para-Rowing Society to better serve coaches and athletes in adaptive rowing worldwide through mentoring, coaching education, equipment sharing and camaraderie.
Recognize that the conventional stroke doctrine does not perfectly apply to different categories of adaptive rowing. Rowing motion, rigging, mechanics may need to be altered and adjusted for the individual.
