This course is designed for beginner and experienced rowers.  In the initial sessions of the course, time will be devoted to general cardiovascular fitness and strength training, with an emphasis on rowing-specific exercises.  Group lectures will cover the basic rowing motion, safe lifting technique, and how to design an effective training plan.  As the semester progresses, there will be longer, more difficult, and more involved workouts, as well as further lectures covering topics such as core training, plyometrics, and on-the-water rowing.
