It was good to have full Putrajaya boat on Saturday, however we will be smelling other team’s farts if people will be training only once a week! Please make all the effort to show up on as many training sessions as you can. Since the functional training has been introduced we work out 4 times a week. If for any reason you can’t do the team training, please find a rowing machine in a local gym and go for 3 sets of 10 min!

Please CONTACT Adrian NOW if you have any questions.
