Title! I'm really interested in the Thompson Boat Center's season passes, and they're so much more convenient for me than the other clubs or going to Anacostia (goal is to row in a single before or after work, ~3x a week). Plus, I think they're cheaper. Does anyone row out of the center and would be willing to take a dm? My main standing question is basically: I have a bunch of rowing experience from years past. Would I have to go through all of their 'learn to scull' classes (as suggested by the website), though I know how to do so and would be happy to demonstrate the experience? I have a f ..read more

Am I placing too much emphasis on weight lifting?

I’m(19M 6’ ft 165 lbs) a rising sophomore, I hadn’t rowed before the fall, walked on to my college rowing team and really enjoyed it and by spring managed to get my 2k to 6:46. Obviously I intend to get this number down and throughout the year I realized I was very light for not being in a light weight program ( being around 160 lbs through out the year) and that I wasn’t very strong in lifts I should be as a rower (deadlift, squat, etc.). So this summer I made it a goal to lift far more (while maintaining aerobic shape) and most recently I’ve had my weekly training split made up of lifting ..read more

Should a decent Male Rower be in the 1000lb club?

Hey there everyone. I'm going into my sophmore year of college and am doing everything within my power to break 6' before graduating (Fall of 2027). I'm doing 150k of rowing a week right now, however I also do two weight training sessions a week. I'm still a beginner in lifting prowess (320lb Deadlift, 270lb Squat, 150lb Bench at 6'2 170lbs), but I want to know if I should spend time concerning myself with raising these lifts into the 1000lb club, or if I can still see success by just maintaining and focusing on Steady State and Anaerobic work. I know my bench is really bad, but I don't see h ..read more

First time on the water - Raleigh NC area

I’ve been on a concept2 in my garage for a few months, and I think I’d like to try getting on the water. I assume I’ve picked up some bad habits though I’ve done some YouTube style training and usually work to a peloton class for the form check in cues. I don’t know anybody that rows and I have no idea how to gauge whether or not it’s a good idea to try getting on the water though it’s something I think I’d really enjoy. I have no idea how to evaluate if I’d be out of my depth (training and performance wise). Are there any groups or opportunities I should be on the lookout for if I want to ge ..read more

BRA and Anti-Doping

Hi everyone, I'm a trans man in the UK and after taking a break from rowing during my first two years at Uni I'm thinking of coming back to the sport. Only issue is that I haven't competed since medically transitioning and starting HRT and would like to compete in one of my university's men's crews. I've read the BRA'S policy on trans athletes and my understanding of the policy is that I would most likely need to request an exemption from UK Anti-Doping. Does anyone have any advice about whether this will be fully necessary (I have never competed at the highest level even when competing ..read more

Just tried the rowing machine today. How was it for folks when you first began trying this kind of workout? And how did you make adjustments/developments if any? I watched a 5min youtube video of a host doing the same thing with two olympic rowers ("US Olympians Teach Us To Row") and i think i got the gist. My 2k was 10min. 500min split was a bit over 2min. This feels pretty slow. I just feel a bit awkward and uncomfortable still, because the motion feels like doing an horizontally assisted/resisted squat/shoulder pull really fast. I don't get out of breath or heart pumping as i do when i run ..read more
