How to tell if you have swung your body back too far.
15:00 Protect your lower back in rowing.
Keep your chest high helps with neutral spine.
17:15 Feet connected to the foot stretcher helps keep your finish posture as well.
How to do a physical check of your finish position. You need help from someone outside your boat to find this out to give you guidance if you are maintaining that position as you row.
Set up your finish position so your oar handles brush your lower ribs at a specific point so you can tell if you’ve rocked back too far because your handle is not at that position.
Set up your oarlock height and your foot stretcher so you have a precise place you finish at on your ribs / shirt.
20:00 Compare video of yourself rowing (3 strokes low rate and firm pressure) to a good example of rowing / sculling. What am I aiming for? Compare to what I’m doing in the video.
