Texas A&M Crew prepares for races with a combination of water practices at Lake Bryan and land practices at the Student Recreational Center. For land workouts, we use rowing machines (ergometers) and also complete strength-training exercises such as free weights, running stairs, and body circuits. We also have erg workouts at the lake during scheduled times, using the team’s fleet of 15 Concept2 ergs..
How do we assign practices?
There are 8 weekly scheduled times for water and erg practices. Rowers will sign up for practice times using the team's Google document, and coaches will use this sign-up to schedule each rower for 2-4 water practices, total. This practice schedule will be periodically reviewed and adjusted (about once a month) as upcoming events change and individual schedules change. Once the schedule is sent out, it should be used to arrange carpools out to the lake.
There is an all-team land practice every Monday from 6:15-7:15 am. Meet in the Rec, by the stairs and front desk, for these workouts.
Lastly, there will be one land workout to be completed on your own time. These workouts are erg-based. There are 4 Concept2 ergs at the Student Recreational Center on campus that can be used for these.
