What I've noticed is that the guys under a certain height always lift hard (or are quite powerful to start) if they are going to go under 7'. Actually, when I had my best times (based on intervals this year), I was lifting 3 X per week and on those days walking right over to the rower after a hard lift and putting in harder / interval days (though not that many). I'm wondering whether that training helped me with the muscle fatigue aspect of rowing better than anything else has. A lot of meters are necessary regardless but I'm not sure meters alone will get you quite there (though you have age and you're fairly strong already going for you). I'm exactly your height so I know the challenge too well (and roughly the same body fat as you).
