|| How To Prepare For Rowing|
Being a part of the SMU Rowing team requires its members to be at peak physical condition in order to maximize their success in competition. While we are more than happy to help a prospective athlete learn how to train, if a rower already works out five times per week, they will be more than ready for practice.
Lots of abs. Don't forget the back, as power is generated from the back to help row. Crunches, bicycle crunches, toe touches, hip bridges, superwomen and oblique crunches are also great ways to prepare the body.
Run! Rowing is an endurance sport. Running is higher impact than rowing, but it takes the same kind of lungs.
Bike! Biking takes more effort getting out the door than running, but it mimics the leg strength of rowing better than running.
