To Achieve High Performance, Details Matter, But It Depends Who You Ask

Details matter, but what constitutes a “detail that matters” depends on who you ask.

This morning, I physiologically evaluated a great local rower on his bike, which was set up on a home trainer. As I walked up to him, I noticed how his bike was set up and how it affected his leg-drive. I immediately spotted a “rigging” issue. The angle of his knee and his pedal stroke were off, not by much, but enough to catch my eye. To a trained eye this was a detail that mattered, a major issue, because it could definitely lead to a chronic knee injury.

Thanks to Elite Coaching, as an athlete, I was taught how to self-coach, to focus on technique, throttle training intensity, how I ate, stretching, making the right choices to stay physically and mentally healthy.

As an Elite Rowing Coach, training details matter immensely, because the sum of all details make up the difference at the finish line.

Thanks to Elite Coaching, I was recruited to Brown University. We stayed undefeated in the men’s open eight. I broke the indoor rowing world record for 2500 meters and won Olympic gold and silver in the men’s single scull.

Very few coaches know the secrets to achieving rowing dominance.

Have a look at my Elite Rowing Coach Family Tree.

Unlike gymnastics in which the athletes start at a very early age, the window of opportunity for high school rowers to get recruited to college or make the A-Boat is extremely narrow. Every stroke matters, when the goal is to make the A-Boat and get recruited.

Rowers who get my Elite Coaching see a dramatic improvement in their erg score within the first 30 days.

If you are passionate about your rowing, you owe it to yourself to learn more about Elite Coaching and how the sum of all details improve your chances to making the A-Boat and make your rowing dreams come true.
