rowing mistakes

Recovery – Dive into the boat

Mistake: Just before the catch the trunk is bent in, with the handle(s) going deep into the boat and the blade(s) coming off the water. The variant where the handle(s) is/are pressed down with the arms is called Skying. Also see: Recovery. Four errors around the catch involve the trunk:
1.  Recovery: Dive into the boat – The trunk is rotated just before the catch and the handle(s) go deep into the boat.
2.  Recovery: Over reaching – The trunk is rotated just before the catch and the handle(s) go in a straight horizontal line.
3.  Catch: Catching with the trunk – The trunk is used to make the catch.
4.  Draw: Use the trunk too early – The trunk is not used for the catch, after the catch the trunk is rotated too early.
Observe: Blade: see if the blades come off the water just before the catch.
Arms: determine that the angle of the arms to the body does not change.
Trunk: optionally look at the trunk to see that it is rotated extra just before the catch.
Cause: Can be caused by insufficient body over in the initial away or a Sliding stroke where the rower dives into the boat to make sufficient space for squaring the blades.
Conse-
quence:
Indirect catch, because the blade is far away from the water. This results in a shorter draw with less efficiency. It also causes inequality within a crewed boat.
Remedy: There are a number of exercises that can solve this mistake Pimenov drawReverse and normal stroke and the Practice body over. Optional: Chopping catch.
Feed-
back:
Tactile by concentration on the lower back or visually by looking at the blade.
