rowing mistakes

Finish – Pulling up the shoulders

Mistake: Shoulders move up and down on release.
Observe: Shoulders: See how the shoulders (also) move up and down instead of back and forth.
Cause: Cramped rowing, or learned incorrectly.
Conse-
quence:
Unnecessary movements disrupt the (efficiency of the) stroke.
Remedy: Ask the rower if he can move his shoulders up and down and then ask if he can move them back and forth. Explain that the first is not and the second is allowed. Use a Differential approach, by asking the rower to row with high shoulders, then with low shoulders, then with shoulders that are first high and then low and finally with shoulders that are first low and then high.
Feed-
back:
Tactile by concentrating on the shoulders.
