Thanks to RowingRelated For a Detailed Recommendation on Training for Masters Racing!

I read an interesting post on RowingRelated the other day on how to balance high-intensity vs. aerobic base training in rowing.  I asked a question that I have posed on this blog before about whether masters rowers should focus more on speed/power training given their shorter 1K race distances in the sprint season.  I think this is a subject that gets very little discussion in the rowing press, as most training recommendations are focused on younger athletes training for high performance at the 2K distance.  The folks at RowingRelated posted an incredibly detailed and informative response, and I’d recommend any rowers, and maybe even some Crossfitters, give it a read!
