rowing mistakes

Scull – Wide-legged rowing

Mistake: The rower keeps his legs apart. Note: A slight spread of the legs on the catch of a sweep rower is allowed.
Observe: Legs: See if the knees are apart.
Cause: Wrong mental image of the (ideal) stroke. Tummy.
Conse-
quence:
The knees are strained/loaded incorrectly.
Remedy: Use a piece of Velcro to bind the knees together. Place a beermat or tennis bal between the knees and count the number of strokes that can be rowed without the beermat/bal falling. Improve the record number of strokes every time.
Feed-
back:
Tactile by feeling the knees touching each other. Visual by looking if they are still touching each other.

Scull – Right handle to the hip
Scull – Not sitting straight
