I just saw this post over on rowing related.
It was Megan Kalmoe’s contribution to the Best Rowing Drills series on the web site.
There was one drill called Top Quarter, where you go from catch to quarter slide and repeat. It looks like it stresses balance and timing in a very challenging way.
I have a lot of trouble confidently maintaining balance going into the catch. If I can get this drill mastered, I think I’ll be a lot cleaner at the catch.
