Many people take the grip it and rip it approach to rowing. The clock’s going, the music’s blasting, and the metcon’s on. They pull as hard and as fast as they can. The work gets done, sometimes very quickly even, but just like with other seemingly straight forward movements, such as running, improved technique will make you more efficient, and allow you to go even faster. A 2k row recently came up on the mainsite, and this video (WMV/MOV) accompanied it. Watching someone row 2,000 meters is by no means the most exciting thing you’ll ever see, and this isn’t the definitive piece on rowing, but there are some good tips in there. We’ll review technique Wednesday, then send you off on a journey to PR city.
