The field of strength and conditioning has grown exponentially over the last two decades, making both collaboration with others and recognition of the impact S&C coaches can have beyond the weight room more important than ever before.

This book purposefully begins by sharing professional insights from both the individuals S&C coaches work with - the event coaches - and those individuals S&C coaches work for - the athletes - to examine how collaboration towards agreed, shared and understood performance goals works in practice. The latter chapters focus on applying S&C principles within rowing populations, which are easily transferred to any athlete.


This includes:

  • A 'performance backwards' approach to planning
  • Exploring an adaptation approach to programming
  • Common injuries across rowing populations
  • Exercise selection, including specific trunk training assessment and programming
  • Transfer of training to rowing performance
  • Understanding the needs of Paralympic Rowers
