From the Coach S&C Sessions

4th August 2020

Dear Budding Athletes

The next step on returning to rowing fitness is to implement some land training. Charlie Girdler-Maslen, a qualified strength and conditioning coach, is designing a summer programme for Cygnet with particular focus on mobility and stability. Charlie has been working with BBL for the past year, some of you may have already met him, and he is very familiar with the common movement problems in rowers. This S&C programme is open to all Cygnet members.

On Saturday 8th August Charlie will be running functional movement screening sessions for Cygnet. This will enable him to tailor exercises to fit the squad. The sessions are available to sign up on Fitclub. Each session 25 mins - 5 people per session, attendance must be registered in advance, don't just turn up.

09.00-09.25 • 09.30-09.55 • 14.00-14.25

If all 3 sessions are full an additional session can be added at 14.30 - just ask.

Please arrive early so you are ready to start the assessment on time. You will need trainers and kit which allows your movement to be seen easily (try to avoid loose t-shirts and baggy shorts).

For the rest of the summer the training sessions will either be on Saturday 9-10 and 2-3 (either side of BBL) or on Wednesday evenings. Ideally you should do a session each week to make the most of the programme. Please complete the doodlepoll to indicate which sessions you would be able to regularly attend for the next couple of months. We will go with the day which suits the majority of people (decision to be on Saturday morning).

If you have any questions about the training please let me know.
