Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Experienced scullers know already, and the uninitiated will soon learn: Blending the countless details of balance, stroke, sculls, and shell into the steady, seemingly effortless rhythm of a good row is no easy task. Yet when those elements mesh, the result is exhilarating. Whether you're an experienced masters sculler looking for an edge in the next Head of the Charles regatta or a novice interested in developing an enjoyable exercise program, The Art of Sculling demystifies both the basics and complexities of a sport that brings health and satisfaction to tens of thousands of people worldwide.

Joe Paduda, a competitive rower, exercise physiologist, and coach of both high school and senior rowing club crews, wrote The Art of Sculling with a coach's eye, taking you through the same natural progression he's seen countless scullers follow--from your first row through advanced training techniques. Paduda begins with the basics, builds on them, then further refines them in a formula that fits both novice and veteran. Here in 12 amply illustrated chapters is everything from choosing the right boat and the right workout to drills for improving your bladework and advice for improving your diet. Recreational rower or racing master, single or team, it's all here. Here also are simple, uncluttered explanations on how your body works and responds to training and diet, and how to get the most from both.

With The Art of Sculling, you'll have your own private coach and trainer alongside as you expand your rowing horizons.

Here's expert advice from rower, coach, and exercise physiologist Joe Paduda that will help you improve your rowing, whether you're a novice or a 20-year veteran:

  • Drills to master bladework and technique
  • Tips on rigging and maintaining your gear
  • How to develop the right diet and training program
  • Physiology simplified--with clear, uncluttered explanations of how your body responds to exercise and nutrition, and how to make the most of it
  • Selecting a racing strategy, whether for singles or team boats
  • And much more.

"Sculling is a fantastic sport. Here's an excellent book for anyone looking to improve their skill. Good rowing."--Brad Lewis, Olympic Gold Medalist, author, Assault on Lake Casitas

Paduda's voice is one of an experienced coach who can communicate some fairly subtle points in an economical, commonsense way."--American Rowing

Synopsis:

The Art of Sculling provides novice and experienced scullers with a comprehensive, illustrated guide to the equipment, techniques, and physiology of the sport. Beginners will find step-by-step instructions and photographs for launching and rigging a boat and developing the proper sculling stroke. Experienced rowers will find guidelines for developing training programs. Other chapters cover advanced technique, racing, sculling in team boats, safety, and sculling for the more mature.
