Side Video

These are video snippets from a session done on July 11, 2018.

Things I know

  • I’m overweight
  • My aerobic fitness isn’t as good as I want it to be.
  • I still break my knees too early

The first 5 videos are of drills that I did:

Delayed Feather:

King of the Mountain:

Half Slide:

Open Hands on Recovery

Pause at Body over


Then a couple of steady state rowing

3 minutes of r20

A quick rate ladder from r18 to r24


Gentle comments welcome!

    Interesting wave pattern in the R20 steady state. Also, lovely bird song in some of the drill videos. 🙂

    Not sure about your definition of gentle, but I think your rowing is improving through all the drills. There are still hints of “over the barrel” rowing, and you are still breaking the knees early, but everything is going in the right direction. Remember, in rowing, there is always some technique flaw to work on.

      It’s really a beautiful place to row. The down side is that it’s short (~3K) and even the 3km has some significant turns in it. But it’s sheltered, scenic and very low traffic. I love it.
