Training Tips

One of the key elements in the rowing action is posture, it is essential that a strong postural position is maintained throughout the rowing action. To achieve correct posture, the torso is simply rocked from a slightly backward (11 o’clock) position to a forward (1 o’clock) position on the seat. This is known as the Rock Over Phase.
