June Performance Coaches Notes

If you’re wondering what type of workout to do, the training doc contains what the Sr. Comp folks should be doing. If you’re new to training for rowing, work into it.

Your body keeps developing as you train. (It also de-trains rather quickly – you keep most of the strength, but the muscle enzymes that enhance endurance go away after only a few weeks.)
