Catch – Catching with the arms (grabbing)
|Mistake:||Rower puts the blade in the water by bending the arms at the elbows. Whether or not followed by a draw with the arms bend. Also see: Catch.|
|Observe:||Arms: see if the arms bend at the catch.|
|Cause:||Catching from the shoulders and locking with the legs, is a complicated movement that few can make on their own.|
|Cramp in the arms because they are bend during the draw or loss of pressure because they are straightened again at some point.|
|Remedy:||Let rowing focus on stretched arms. Catch must be made from the shoulders. Good exercises for this are Pimenov draw, Rowing with 3 catches and Chopping catch.|
|Visually by looking at the arms. Tactile by focusing on the shoulder movement of the catch.|
