In order to keep the text readable, the masculine form of address is used everywhere. Each exercise is described in the following fixed format:

Practice: What exactly is the exercise, how is it done.
Type: Is it a classical or motorial exercise?
Purpose: Why is this exercise done.
Focus: What should the rower pay attention to when performing the exercise?
Transfer: How do you ensure that what you learn is carried over to the stroke.
If nothing is described, the stroke must be executed with the same focus as in the exercise.
Variation: What variants of the exercise are there?
Make: If it is a tool, how do you make that tool.
