Wednesday: More Technique Work

Lovely morning.  Still not in the mood to row hard.  So, more technique rowing.  Mostly just rowing at r18 to 20 and trying to finish very cleanly.  I am trying to remember the advice from “Sculling in a Nutshell” at the finish.  The author suggests that you think of the arm motion at the finish like the way you use your arms to hoist yourself out of a pool.  Basically, keep steady outward pressure while you push your hands down.  This maintains the stability of your upper body.  I was also trying to keep proper posture in mind throughout, but I would catch myself slouching.  I feel like I should row in some kind of a brace to keep my back straight as a drill sometime.

Look a lot like Tuesday’s session!
