Draw – Practice finish hand height

Practice: First, establish that the rower is not Digging deep. When this is the case, the highest point of the handle(s) is in the middle of the drawand not at the end. The start with the exercise Vary blade height. This exercise consists of a number of steps, proceed to the next step only when the current step is well mastered.
Step 1: Next, ask the rower not to pull the handle(s) toward him with a bend at the top (""), but to raise the handle(s) at the end of the draw (""). This results in the handle(s) being pulled almost in a straight line toward the chest. If this is still insufficient, ask the rower to row the first half of his daw with half-covered blade and the second half of the draw with fully-covered blade. Let him look at his blade to see if that works.
Step 2: Ask the rower to make three draws consecutively with the handle(s) being pulled at abdominal level, three draws  at chest level, followed by three draws at abdominal level and three draws at hip level. So, the finish hand height as follow: chest, belly, hip, belly, chest, belly etc.
Step 3: Ask the rower to draw the handle(s) at chest height and then press it into the lap at the finish (""). The chest height is used, because the handle(s) will automatically go down (overcompensation). In doing so, press the handle(s) down first and only then turn the blades (press & turn). 
Type: Stepwise Motor exercise developed by Jeroen Brinkman. Uses Stretching the movement space.
Purpose: Learn to make the end draw at the right height.
Focus: Pay attention to the handles. In sculling, the thumbs can be used to prick the chest or abdomen. In doing so, the finish hand height can be felt. Pay attention to both the correct height and that both thumbs touch the body at the same height.
Transfer:  Finally, ask the rower to write from the catch a lying "J" with the handle(s): . See: J-stroke. Alternatively, ask the rower to rotate the handle(s) around an imaginary ball in front of his belly (""). If the movement is too small, ask to make the ball a little bigger. If necessary, make the movement more fluid by asking the rower to row where it looks like he has been doing it this way for 20 years, rather than like he just learned it.

Draw – Vary trunk rotation
Control – 3 full, 3 light
