A rowing update by our own Gareth Newbury
The level 2 rowing classes started a few weeks ago and have been well received at CFL. There has been some fantastic improvement in technique, split times and a clear improvement in cardio function from the regular attendees.
If you are interested in joining the weekly level 2 classes (every Tuesday at 6.45pm) and developing these gains, please sign up for the level 1 class so we can focus on getting the technique to the best standard before being let loose in the level 2 class. Level 1 classes will be run every other Tuesday at 7.45pm in the back room of 10 Malcolm Place. You will need to attend at least 2 level 1 classes to ensure you have the required knowledge and technique.
The level 2 programme will run at 6.45pm in the backroom of 9 Malcolm Place. In this class we will be focused purely on drills to enhance your pulling power, lung capacity and endurance. The drills will include:
8 x 500m / 3min30 rest
4 x 2000m / 5min rest
3k, 2.5k, 2k / 5min rest
4 x 1000m / 5min rest
We will focus on reducing your split times, working towards delivering a better 2k time, tested at the end of the 8 week programme.
At the end of the programme you can sign up again to keep making gains.
The Tuesday class will be the core focus but there will also be a chance to do additional sessions either, in your own time or you can join me in a non-class based session.
