Notes for strength training with weights 3 sets per exercise and 5-8 reps per set. Select weight so that fatigue/shaking near end of second set. Rest for 1.5-2 minutes between sets. Maintain ratio of 2:1 for recovery motion : primary movement to maximize workload. Use proper form. See PowerPoint files. If you have questions, ask a coach. If you have not done an exercise before, learn the proper movement before adding weight. You can always add more weight the next set. Safety first. INVERTED ROW:

Notes for erg/cardio workouts Progressive warm-up= – Over the prescribed amount of time, build from ¼ pressure to full pressure in roughly equal increments Example: 6 minute progressive warm-up – 0-1.5min at 1/4 pressure – 1.5-3min at 1/2 pressure – 3-4.5min at 3/4 pressure – 4.5-6min at full pressure Progressive cool-down= – Over the prescribed time, work down from full pressure to ¼ pressure in roughly equal increments Inverse of the example warm-up above
Winter Training Cycle End of November through mid-January – Strength building – Base development Mid-January through February – Convert max strength to explosive power March and April – Rhythm and explosiveness – High intensity intervals – Anaerobic threshold work
