Proper Nutrition

“You are what you eat” – this saying is true when it comes to athletes who need to perform on a consistent basis. If you eat the right kind of nutrition, it becomes easier for your body to handle the strain of workouts or competitions that last for an extended period of time. This means cutting back on fast food and alcohol.

Expert Advice

If you have been in the rowing game for a while, it is natural to meet experts in the sport. Don’t be afraid to ask these individuals for advice about your training regime and get some insights into their lifestyle. In this way, you could adopt some training strategies without having to reinvent the wheel.

Book in Advance

Book your ticket in advance for a competition. Rowing competitions often provide tickets months ahead of the date. This provides enough time for athletes to plan for the competition. Make sure you use this time to the best of your ability.
