Masters Nutrition

Want to stay fast ater 30? Roll back the years with our guide to nutrition for a masters athlete.

There has been a huge increase in older rowers entering the regatta scene whether for competition or just for recreational purposes. This partly reflects the fact that we are all living much longer. One hundred years ago life expectancy was 42 years. Now it’s twice as long. Even the erg in the gym has attracted a lot of press recently as the best all round body work-out for older athletes.

People are continuing the sports they enjoyed when younger as well as taking up new sports. Masters rowers are making significant achievements, not least James Cracknell who rowed in this year’s Oxford Cambridge Boat Race and became the oldest competitor to participate at the age of 46.

A rower may compete as a masters rower from the relatively early age of 27 (note this deinition varies within sports, so you could be a veteran golfer at 50!) and then be placed in categories A-M from the ages of 27 to 89.
