rowing mistakes

General – Spine movement

Mistake: The trunk movement comes from the spine and not from the pelvis. As a result, the trunk alternates in being concave and convex.
Observe: Spine: see if it moves.
Conse-
quence:
Back pain due to incorrect load.
Remedy: Ask the rower to stretch the back and sit upright. Preferably use a video recording or a mirror. Differential approach to the spine: first have the rower sitting in the boat and alternately stretch and bend his spine and then rotate his trunk in and out. Then have the rower row, while alternately rotating his trunk and flexing his spine. Finally let the rower row with no movement in the spine.
Feed-
back:
Tactile by paying attention to the spine movement.
