Well maybe we can get together and compare notes. We'd both suck really good by next year.

Well, he could be a bit more specific if he wants real answers.

Ivan,

The problem with your post is that a good training plan has to address your own personal goals, current fitness level, experience, and time frame.

Also its going to be rather detailed, and will vary week to week. So without more information, we can't really help you with such a broad question, and even with more information the answer would be too detailed for a forum post.

So the better answer is to take a look at these books:

OP is from Serbia. I'd give him some slack on this one. I'm sure English is not their primary language.

here's a start:

Ivan - read the threads that are 'stickied' at the top of the page... they'll help a lot.
If you are new to this sport, just ride a lot and try a little bit of structure. You may enjoy it more than diving in to highly structured training all at once.
If you are already a serious athlete who is used to training, then go through the "workout book" with same workouts and even without a powermeter, try to replicate those same kinds of ideas & efforts in how you train.

best of luck!

Hi Hida,

Thanks for the answer. I have been practicing rowing for nine years and I'm used to very hard training. Rowing is super hard sport. I have a silver and bronze medals from World Championship. I started with cycling 2 years ago and it helped me a lot with rowing. So, I'm trying to cycle as much as I can besides the rowing. Last summer I cycled 100k almost every day, but it's kind a boring to do it every day. That's why I'm looking for some plan...Hopefully, it's gonna be more interesting...

Ivan -
There are several rowers on my team, and they are all very, very strong cyclists.
Since you are clearly used to training hard, I would recommend that you consider what you wish to work on by bike training.
Depending on the races you wish to compete in for rowing, I would tailor bike training to mimic those efforts. It sounds like you have been using a bike to train steady-state muscles, and I think you may find additional gains by adding more intensity intervals to your long rides.

However, if you wish to compete in bike races, I would recommend that you focus on short "burst" or "sprint" efforts as those have no perfect correlation in competitive rowing.

Hinda,

Australian rower, who has 3 Olympic gold medals and used to cycle a lot besides the rowing, after 2008 Olympics decided to try make Olympics with Australian cycling team. I'm not sure, but I think that he is already in Australian cycling team. He said that cycling helped him a lot during his rowing career. So, cycling is a definitely great sport.

I don't plan to compete in bike races, cuz its impossible to do both cycling and rowing on a high level. I just want to use cycling as a second practice. And you are right, I generally used cycling to train steady state, and I have a pretty good cycling base. I cycled 100k at avg speed of 37km/h almost every day during the summer and I think that is not bad for me, because cycling is not my primary sport. So, right now, I want to work on speed and power. Cycling makes me legs stronger and generally increases my steady state possibilities, and those are 2 most important things in rowing.

Any suggestions about speed and power workouts? And thank you for the answers.
