Randwick Personal Trainer “Indoor Rowing The Right Way”
Randwick Personal Trainer:Rowing is one of my warm up tools, I typically do it if for about 5 minutes or 1000 metres which ever come first, Luckily over the years I have had many talented clients of which one was a rowing teacher, with her knowledge I have helped my clients to do indoor rowing the correct way.
Check out these handy tips to get you started!
Arms are straight; head is neutral; shoulders are level and not hunched.
Upper body is leaning forward from the hips with the shouldersin front of the hips.
Shins are vertical, or as close to vertical as is comfortable for you. Shins should not move beyond perpendicular.
Heels may lift as needed.
Start the drive by pressing with your legs, and then swing the back through the vertical position before finally adding the arm pull.
Hands move in a straight line to and from the flywheel.
Shoulders remain low and relaxed.
Upper body is leaning back slightly, using good support fromthe core muscles.
Legs are extended and handle is held lightly below your ribs.
Shoulders should be low with wrists and grip relaxed. Wrists should be flat.
Extend your arms until they straighten before leaning from the hips towards the flywheel.
Once your hands have cleared your knees, allow your knees to bend and gradually slide the seat forward on the monorail.
For your next stroke, return to the catch position with shoulders relaxed and shins vertical.
