rowing mistakes

Crew – No balance in the sweep boat

Mistake: The boat is not permanently level. Also see: Balance.
Observe: Oarlocks: look at the oarlocks to determine if the boat is:
falling: the boat incidentally falls (rolls) over one side or falls to both sides;
lying: systematically lying on one side during multiple strokes, because the boat is not levelled by the crew;
bouncing: the oarlocks go up and down during recovery due to No core stability and balance;
oscillating: rolls back and forth rhythmically throughout the stroke, because the boat falls and is levelled again.
Determine whether the boat is levelled on each catch and/or finish.
Handle: see if the handles move up and down to level the boat (balancing the handle).
Cause: The collective mistake: No core stability and balance. Too little balancing the handle An Uneven finish, or hit the water at the same time in the recover Systematic tapping of the water can also introduce balance disturbances. Finally, individual rowers can introduce balance disturbances by sitting askew: Leaning away from the rigger.
Imbalance. Loss of speed on board boats because on one side drawing above your comfort reduces power and the other side has difficulty getting the blade out of the water. Similarity is an essential precondition for balance.
Depending on the problem:
Fall: The boat rolls and levels again. Make sure there is an even finish (Uneven finish) and that the stroke length at the finish is equal. Check whether the blades on both sides remain at the same height above the water during the recovery (Skying). In that case use the exercise outer hand detached.
Lie: The boat lies on one side during several strokes. The boat falls, but is not levelled by the rowers by balancing the handle. The exercises Lay side and Battle of the sides.
Bounce: Here is the missing core stability (Balance) the cause. To do this, look at No core stability and balance.
Oscillate: the boat falls due to incorrect lever handling at the recovery, but every draw levelled by the rowers. A regular rolling motion is created. See fall.
Visually by looking at the (own) gunwale or oarlock: it moves up and down. Tactile by balance through foot stretcher and buttocks.
Tactile by noticing how the boat rocks back and forth. Visually by looking at the gunwales or stroke his oarlock: it moves up and down.

Crew – No balance in the scull boat
Crew – No water-free recovery
