A rare Thursday post. I found a great article on strength training for different sports which has superseded my obsession with kidney function and blood Ph. My initial goal with the Wendler program was to get my lifts up to respectable levels but now the question is, respectable for what? If I am going to be a "specialist" in rowing how much do I really have to lift to enhance my performance. I would still like to have a 1.5 times bodyweight squat but do I need that to be a good rower. I will keep you posted as more info becomes available.
