A rower's blade makes a sawing motion draw

rowing mistakes

Draw – Seesawing of the blade

Mistake: The leg drive is not properly taken over by the trunk rotation and/or the trunk rotation is not taken over properly by the arms. Or the movement sequence is not in the right order (legs – trunk – arms).
Observe: Blade: Watch the blade move up and down during the draw
Cause: Wrong movement order or an non-fluent draw.
Conse-
quence:
The oar saws (moves up and down) through the water. The pressure during the draw is not constant (pressure loss). Less effective draw and balance distortion.
Remedy: Practice draw sequence.
