Focus Points

1. Catch Position

Tip: Have Good Posture

Think of sitting tall all the times, concentrate on pulling your navel into your spine.

2. The Drive

Tip: Use Your Legs

The majority of the power comes from the legs, ensure you are initiating the Drive and pushing firmly away with your legs on each stroke.

3. The Release Position

Tip: Accelerate The Handle Into The Body

Focus on having a strong pull of the handle towards the body at the end of the drive phase.

4. The Rocked Over Position

Tip: Smooth Rhythmical Continuous Rowing Action

Aim to have a good Ratio and Rhythm – that is spending twice as much time going forwards up the slide on the recovery as compared to the drive back.

5. The Recovery Phase

Tip: Long Rowing Action

Try to get full compression of the legs and full reach of the upper back and arms to a position comfortable for you. Stroke length will vary according to your flexibility and body shape and should improve over time.

You're Doing Great, Keep going.
