Dominate your winter training.
Strategy. Efficiency. Mental Toughness. Bravery.
The 2017 2K Clinic was a roaring success!
Athletes joined us from all over the country to work on erg efficiency, strategy and most importantly - mental fitness. Athletes self reported the following after the Clinic:
100% of RSR Clinic athletes were very/extremely satisfied with the Clinic
89% strongly feel more confident taking on challenges
89% strongly feel braver
89% strongly believe they now have tools to better manage performance anxiety
89% strongly feel more confident regarding their next 2K test.
The erg is a great tool to help you become a faster rower. Unfortunately, many rowers view it as a chore or even a torture device. We have found that most junior and college-level athletes find themselves in one of the top two quadrants - anxiety or flow - while at rowing practice (see Figure 1). The reason for this is because they have the perception that they are ill-prepared or lack the skill to perform at a certain level and meet a perceived challenge. At RSR we break down these perceptions and then provide a framework for them to strategically train and perform so that they know they have done the work and have the skill to perform.
We coach you on how to start to shift your mindset so that you can can train in a state of FLOW more often by managing your fears of the erg so that you can use it to help you reach your goals.
One way that we do this is through bravery training with Brave Enterprises. Get a glimpse from our video from the RSR 2016 2K Clinic.
