1 Ed McNeely Junior National Team Strength Training Program

2 The majority of rowers use some form of resistance training in their preparation for the rowing season. While strength is obviously very important for a competitive rower how strong does a rower have to be? Does is really make any difference in rowing performance if you increase the weight you can squat from 500 lbs. to 550 lbs.? Every sport requires a certain level of strength to achieve optimal performance. Increasing strength beyond these levels does not necessarily improve performance and in some instances can be detrimental to performance. Once the ideal level of strength has been achieved the time needed to increase beyond this point could be better spent training something else i.e. rowing technique, aerobic fitness, flexibility, or anaerobic fitness. How Much Strength do Rowers Need? There are several ways to determine the strength demands of a sport. A biomechanical analysis of the forces generated on the foot stretchers, oar lock, or at the blade can provide good information on how much force is developed with each stroke. Elite rowers generate their highest forces on the first stroke of a race. These forces have been found to reach 1352 N, which is roughly equal to 135 kg, for men and 1019 N or 102 kg for women. Back in 1975, research on the East German National team indicated that the minimum level of rowing strength required for international competition was 133 kg. With the increases in boat speed and changes in oar technology this is undoubtedly higher today. A second method for determining strength goals is to base them on the strength levels of elite competitors. Presumably, if a competitor is medalling at the Olympics or World Championships they are strong enough to be successful. This doesn't hold true all the time because of differences in technical efficiency and aerobic fitness but it is a good starting point. In order to study maximal force generation at the catch Secher developed an isometric apparatus that was adjustable so as to suit individual rowing positions. Using Dutch Olympic, national, and club level rowers it was found that international rowers on average generated 204 kg of force. National level rowers generated 183 kg of force and club rowers generated 162 kg of force. Using other non-specific rowing tests isometric arm pull, back extension, trunk flexion and leg extension on the same groups of athletes, it was found that the higher the competition level of the rower the greater the strength in all tests. The use of non rowing tests of strength has it's pros and cons. Force application in a boat is technically different than it is in a leg press or squat. While these tests are very good for determining if the muscles are strong enough to do the job they don't necessarily reflect someone's boat moving ability. Weight lifting tests do have the advantage of being low tech, they don't require computer links to strain gauges or force plates, and easy to administer. Concept II has developed a machine called the Dyno which works on the same air resistance principals as the erg but can be used for strength training and testing. This is a very well made machine and in time will probably become a standard tool for strength testing for rowers. Unfortunately, because it has only been on the market for a couple of years I can't provide any strength norms for it yet.

3 Strength and Body weight Strength can be classified as either absolute or relative. Absolute strength represents the maximum amount of weight that can be lifted one time. Larger people tend to have higher absolute strength than smaller people because they carry more muscle mass. Relative strength is the maximum amount of weight that can be lifted one time in relation to bodyweight. Relative strength is of more importance to a rower than absolute strength. The amount of weight in a boat affects the drag through the water. Increasing absolute strength is of no benefit if the weight gain offsets the strength gain by increase resistance through the water. Increasing relative strength makes it easier to accelerate the boat with each stroke because strength has increased without increasing the drag. It is because of the importance of relative strength that the strength goals presented here are expressed as percentages of bodyweight. Strength Goals The table of goals below have been developed from the data I have collected during my consultation with rowers from novice high school rowers to Olympic Champions as well as from an examination of the force and strength research that has been done. Because the goals are expressed as multiples of body weight they are applicable to both heavyweight and lightweight rowers. Table 1. Strength to Weight Factors for Men High School U 23 Club National Olympic Squat Deadlift Bench Pull Table 2. Strength to Weight Factors for Women High School U 23 Club National Olympic Squat Deadlift Bench Pull Using the Tables To use the table take your body weight and multiply it by the appropriate factor. For instance if you were a 200 lb. Male club rower you should be able to bench pull 210 lbs. one time (200 lb. Bodyweight x 1.05 = 210). These tables are appropriate for rowers

4 aged Strength normally decreases after age 35 and those under 15 should be focusing on technique and body stability instead of maximum strength. In a future article I will provide tables for rowers over age 35. If you currently are able to meet these goals you can focus your training on other areas. If you can't meet these goals strength may be one of the things holding back your performance. Here are some pointers to help you reach your goals: 1. Take a Long Term Approach to Strength Development Don't try to achieve these goals overnight. It may take several years for you to reach the strength goal at each competitive level. Notice how the strength level of Olympic rowers is twice that of the high school rower. The average age of Olympic rowers is years old. This gives the high school rower about 10 years to double their strength. Rapid increases in strength are possible but won't likely be maintained from year to year. 2. Keep Everything in Perspective Just because you haven't achieved the strength goals that I have outlined there is no reason to panic and wildly change your program. Decreasing the amount of aerobic training or technical training so that you can spend more time in the weight room may help you reach your strength goal but it may not make you a better rower. Look at all aspects of your performance before changing your program. Aerobic and technical training are far more important than strength is to your performance. If you feel that you are technically proficient and aerobically very fit then maybe you can decrease the time you spend on these things until your strength level improves. Otherwise work on the other things first. 3. Don't Over Do it Keep strength training sessions short. Sessions that last longer than minutes often lead to overtraining. Shorter more frequent training sessions cause greater strength increases than long infrequent sessions. Try to fit in 3-5, 45 minute sessions each week. 4. Focus on Strength not Strength Endurance Until you have adequate strength, strength endurance training should be eliminated from the program. Strength increases do not occur with the high repetition, low resistance training common in strength endurance programs. Strength endurance training without adequate strength only means you are getting better at being weak.

5 A good warm up is essential for a good workout and must be done prior to each training session. Warm up increases muscle temperature, flexibility, strength and endurance, making your workout more effective. There are two components to every warm up: General Warm Up Full body Calisthenics A warm up starts with some full body calisthenics. Exercises like jumping jacks, rope jumping, push ups, sit ups, and lunges are full body exercises that will increase body temperature. These exercises should be done for a total of 2-3 minutes as the goal of warm up is to increase temperature not create fatigue. Stretching Following the calisthenics you should spend 3-5 minutes doing some dynamic stretches. Dynamic stretching is a more effective means of warm up stretching than static stretching, meaning that rather than holding a stretch for a period of time you move through a full range of motion and then back to your starting position immediately without holding the stretch. This is particularly true when you are doing power training. Several studies have shown that a static stretch immediately before power training can significantly decrease subsequent power development. In the warm up below each of the stretches is done 4-6 times in a dynamic fashion. General Warm Up 10 Squat jumps - Quad stretch - 8 Walking Lunges Hamstring stretch- 8 Push Ups- Calf Stretch 10 lateral hops- Arm Swings Specific Warm Up After you have completed the General Warm up you need to do a specific warm up for the type of training that you will be doing. Keep in mind that warm up is just that warm up not training, fatigue should be kept to a minimum during warm up otherwise the training session will suffer.

6 Warming Up for Strength Training When weight training, do at least two sets, one at 50% and one at 75% of the work weight, before using the working weight. Very strong people need to do more sets. Many elite powerlifters and weightlifters use six to eight warm up sets prior to opening attempts in competition. Repetitions in warm up sets are low, 1-4, and done at a controlled speed. Warm up sets are done for every exercise in the program, not just the first exercise. Warming Up for Speed, Agility and Anaerobic Training As in weight training a warm up for speed, agility and power events or training uses warm up sets. Prior to each drill start with a walk through set that allows you to rehearse the drill in your mind and remind you of the movements and changes of direction that have to be made. Following the walk through perform two progressively faster trials, one at about half speed and one at three quarter speed. Be sure to focus on good technique during each of the warm up sets, the way you perform in warm up will be the way you perform in the training session. Warming Up for Aerobic Training Since most of the aerobic training you will be doing is low intensity there isn t a specific portion to the warm up. If you were to do higher intensity aerobic intervals you would start with minutes of light aerobic work prior to starting the interval portion on the session. Squat Jumps Quad Stretch Walking Lunges Hamstring Stretch Push Ups Calf Stretch Lateral Hops Arm Swings

7 Strength training plays many roles in a training program, increasing strength, power and speed, decreasing the chance of injury and improving technical performance. There are several general principals that need to be followed when performing your strength programs. Speed The speed of movement is noted using three numbers like which coincide with the lifting part of the exercise, a pause at the top, and the lowering part of the movement. In the programs a speed of means take two seconds to lift the weight, pause for one second at the top and then lower the weight for two seconds. It is very important to follow the speeds listed, strength increases are specific to the speeds used so if you train too slow or too fast you won t make gains at the speeds you need for hockey. For some exercises you will see explosive listed as part of the speed notation, this means move the weight as fast as possible for that part of the movement. Rest Between Sets Rest refers to the time that is taken between each set of an exercise. The rest between sets allows your body the time to replenish the energy used during the set and plays a role in determining the training effect. Rest periods for developing strength and maximal strength are quite long, usually 3-5 minutes. Strength training with heavy weight and low reps uses predominantly the anaerobic alactic energy system. The alactic energy system relies on the energy stored in the muscles. Energy is stored in the form of ATP and CP. These two compounds, known as the phosphagens, are available for immediate use. The stored supply of these compounds is relatively small providing energy for about seconds of all out strength training effort. Once all the stored energy is used up the body requires about 3 minutes to fully replace the phosphagens. If the next set is started before the phosphagens are fully restored the muscles will be forced to use the anaerobic lactic energy system. This will result in a build up of lactic acid. Lactic acid is responsible for the burning sensation in the muscles. It also causes feelings of heaviness and fatigue. A build up of lactic acid will inhibit the quantity and quality of work performed resulting in fewer strength gains. Unless specifically noted you should take 3 minutes between sets. Selecting a Weight to Use While the rep range gives you a guideline for the amount of weight to use it is up to you to pick the appropriate resistance for your goal and fitness level. One of the most basic principals of training is the Overload Principal, which states that you need to continually be increasing the physical stress on your body in order for it to continue to adapt and bring you closer to your goals. Choose a weight that will allow you to just complete the

8 number of reps required for the low end of the rep range using good technique, use this weight until you are able to perform two more reps than the required number using good technique for all sets then increase the weight and start over again.

13 Strength Testing There are two types of strength testing. Maximal strength testing, often called 1RM, measures the maximum amount of weight that can be lifted one time. Submaximal repetition testing involves a lighter weight, more repetition and a formula to estimate maximum strength. 1RM Tests Maximum strength testing (1RM testing) can be a time consuming process. It will normally take anywhere from minutes per exercise to do a true max test. The procedure is as follows: Warm up with a light weight that can easily be handled for 5-10 reps Rest 2 minutes Increase the weight by 10-20% and do a second warm up of 3-5 reps. Rest 2 minutes Increase the weight by another 10-20% and perform a final warm up of 2-3 reps Rest 3-4 minutes Increase the load by 5-10% and try one repetition Rest 3-4 minutes If the last attempt was successful increase the weight by 5% and try another one repetition. If it was not successful decrease the weight by 2.5-5% and try again. Repeat this process until only one repetition can be performed with proper technique. Always rest 3-4 minutes between attempts. Ideally the 1RM will be found within five sets of finishing the warm up. If it takes longer than this fatigue may affect the accuracy of the test. Normally this type of testing is accurate to within 5% of the true 1RM. Estimated Tests Estimated tests have been developed as a time efficient alternative to 1RM testing. These tests use formulas to predict maximum strength. In most cases these tests are as accurate as the 1RM test. They lose their accuracy with athletes who train very close to their max for long periods at a time. The procedure is a s follows: Warm up with a light weight that can easily be handled for 5-10 reps Rest 2 minutes Increase the weight by 10-20% and do as many reps as possible. You should reach failure between 2 and 10 reps. Look up the weight you lifted and the number of reps you did on the chart. Where the two meet is your 1RM If you do more than 10 reps take a 10 minute rest, increase the weight by another 10-20% and try again.

14 Test Exercises If you recall from the How Strong is Strong Enough article a couple of issues ago, I provided strength to weight factors for three lifts, the squat, deadlift, and bench pull. These three exercises are used because they test all the muscles used in rowing, require a minimal amount of equipment, and are very easy to standardize. They are also exercises that should be included in most rowers training programs. The Squat The bar is placed across the back. The hands should be as close together as possible, the elbows point towards the floor and feet are slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Back one step out of the rack, take a deep breath and contract your abs to stabilize your trunk and descend slowly into a squat position. Once you reach the bottom drive with your legs and return to a standing position. Squat depth needs to be consistent from test to test otherwise you won't know if you are improving. The test should be done using a full squat (deeper than the half squat depicted in the diagram but I don't have a drawing of the full squat). A good guideline for depth is your hamstrings should touch your calves. There is a misconception that going below 90 degrees will cause knee problems. There is no research to back up this contention only speculation. Strength improvements are specific to the range of motion that you use. As a rower it is vital that you achieve similar knee angles in the squat that you would achieve in the boat. If you don't squat all the way to the bottom you won't increase your strength at the catch.

15 Bench Pull Lie face down on a high bench. When you grasp the bar arms should be straight, hands shoulder width apart. Keeping the head, upper body, and legs flat on the bench, pull the weight up until it touches the bottom of the bench. If you don't have a high bench at your facility you can make one by taking a flat bench and putting it on a couple of aerobics steps. If you do this, make sure the bench is stable and balanced before you start lifting. Try to use the same or bench each time you test. The thickness of the bench will affect how far you have to pull and the test results. Deadlift Stand in front of a bar feet shoulder width apart. Squat down and grasp the bar with an overhand grip i.e. palms towards you. Keeping the back flat, take a deep breath, tighten your abs and stand up with the weight using your legs to start the movement. It is very important to feel the legs working in this exercise. If you straighten the legs too soon, in a movement similar to shooting your slide, it becomes a back lift and could cause injury. If you are not familiar with these lifts, take a few weeks to practice technique before attempting any sort of test. Regular testing is part of any good training program. It helps you establish goals and provides concrete evidence about the effectiveness of the program. Strength tests need to be repeated every training cycle or 4-6 weeks.
