Karl Adam died one year after this book was published. He introduced
intervall training and weightlifing into competitive rowing and taught
his crews to change the leverage of oars and sculls according to the
types of boats and the wind conditions. His traing methods resulted
in a domination of (West)German rowing from 1959-1968.
