Kurt Jensen - How should rowers balance different training intensities and volumes?

This presentation by Kurt Jensen, international lecturer in the field of training and physiology, looks into the physiological characteristics of rowing athletes and how these affect their training plan focus. We particularly like the ‘Week Test’ which allows you to adjust your training focus depending on how your scores fit the ‘optimum curve’ for rowing performance.
