Training at the tank
It was an early Saturday start for 17 Broadland members on 13th January...off to the tank we went! 2 coaches were ready to put us through our paces and provide some valuable training.
Slightly distracted by city airport just across the river, and an extensive selection of boats belonging to the local clubs we had arrived at the Royal Docks Adventure.
The tank seats 8 people and enables the coach to walk around the whole crew, whilst filming individuals’ technique. After that, we were put on the dreaded ergs and it was suggested rowers should “learn to love the erg...!!”
Lots of pointers, exercises and ideas for drills were given and we all have plenty to work on. Everyone will now strive to achieve the ‘table top mountain’ curve on the erg display and put new learning into practice.
