What is a Body Analysis & Rowing Assessment and why should I do it?
It is a detailed body analysis specific to a rowing athlete, measuring:
- body strength testing
- video analysis on an ergometer
Specific feedback on your body’s flexibility, strength, ergometer rowing technique and boat set-up will be provided.
By completing this assessment, you will understand what body composition is required of a rowing athlete and understand what areas you can work on to improve your rowing stroke.
You will walk away from the session with a rowing body analysis report and you will have understanding what types of exercises and recovery strategies you should be focusing on to assist in reaching your personal rowing goals.
Can our whole squad be assessed?
Yes. This service is really valuable when applied to a squad, and we're able to offer group discounts for squads. Assessment of a rowing squad can highlight inter-rower differences, allowing recommendations for conditioning and training programs to get the best performance from the squad. Following an initial assessment, we recommend re-assessment after 3 months, to monitor the outcome of our recommendations, and to adjust training goals as the athletes body continues to strengthen and evolve.
When should I have this assessment done?
Screening is best performed early in the pre-season phase of training but can be performed at any time in the season.
What else can we do to have a really great season?
We also offer 1 hour Injury Prevention Workshops covering warm up, training and recovery strategies for the rowing athlete. These workshops aim to empower athletes with the knowledge of what they can do themselves to prevent injuries from occurring. The injury patterns in this sport are unique because of the stress applied during the rowing stroke and training loads. A specific recovery routine is an important part of a training program and is something coaches can’t always be there for to facilitate. These workshops are also practical and addresses the current recovery research to aid peak performance.
