What is the essence of sculling? As we continue to erg while and get ready to transition back out onto the water, I thought the following video with Troy Howell from Craftsbury would be helpful to view. Note, the video was shot with a 360 camera, so once the video begins to play, click on the video and drag your cursor to the right to see Troy on the water.

This week’s suggested workouts are below.  Please be sure to exercise at your own pace and take your time. None of the workouts are required and the following is only intended as suggested workouts to try.
