rowing mistakes

Sweep – Straight inner arm

Mistake: The inner arm is fully extended before the catch. Also see: hands.
Observe: Arm: look at the inner arm and determine that the arm is held straight.
Shoulder: look at the inner shoulder and determine that is is pushed upwards.
Cause: Wrongly taught.
The inner shoulder is pressed up, so that the rower is not rowing symmetrically.
Remedy: Place the inner hand further towards the oarlock on the oar, so that the arm can no longer be fully extended. Then, bit by bit shift this hand to the right position keeping the arm bend.
Tactile by feeling the shoulder, visually by looking at the elbow.

Sweep – Hands placed incorrect
Sweep – Leaning away from the rigger
