Rowing moves into the living room . . .
Mr Brindley, RGS Worcester's brilliant Head of S&C, has put together three work outs for you to do at home, including:
- Aerobic Circuit
- Strength Workout
- Mobility, Isometrics & Core
If you do nothing else, do these, as they will give you a great base from which to resume training when we are allowed back on the water. If you don't know how to do an exercise then watch the video to see Mr Brindley in action.
In addition, our rowing coaches have been scouring the internet for home-based work-outs that you can do at home - the links are below.
If you have access to a rowing machine:
Every day, the Concept 2 website has a work-out of the day. If you also follow Concept 2 on Instagram the work-outs are usually posted there too. And if you don't fancy the work-out they've recommended then there is usually an alternative to choose from.
You can also update your knowledge of technique here:
If you think you're doing something wrong on the ergo, get a member of your household to film you and send your coach the video on Google Drive - we are happy to help.
If you have access to an exercise bike:
The work-outs on the link below are aimed at Concept-2 erg bikes but work quite well for any exercise bike (most bikes have programmed work-outs too so try some out):
And finally . . .
There are loads of ideas on the BBC Get Inspired pages. Here's a great flexibility work-out for you to try at home: www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/get-inspired/46794187
