Advanced Rowing brings together a selection of leading experts in the sport of rowing, including international head coaches from New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, and Denmark, who have all coached crews to World and Olympic medals. Distinguished club and university coaches contribute from across the United States, Great Britain, and Australia. Between them, these coaches work with the top national level athletes in their countries and specialize in preparing them to an international competitive standard.

In this book, coaches reveal key features that they believe explain why they have achieved a consistent level of success, including:
- Training programs that promote skill and fitness
- Motivating and inspiring athletes
- Creating successful training environments
- Selecting athletes and talent identification
- Making use of other experts (e.g. sport scientists, physiotherapists, dedicated strength and conditioning coaches)

Advanced Rowing also offers insights from experts on selected topics that are important in the development of rowing success including biomechanics, nutrition, technique development, endurance training, and strength and conditioning.

This is an essential resource for any rowing coach, providing an overview of the general environments that support high performance domestic and international rowing programs, and describing the range of strategies that elite rowing coaches use to help develop a successful rowing team from school to club to international level.
