Row Sprints

Rowing requires proper technique to maximize performance. Maintaining correct posture and properly sequencing leg, trunk and arm motion are important aspects of proper rowing technique.

Several research studies have been performed to characterize optimal rowing techniques. Most rowing experts agree that the proper sequence of motion—in order to maximize both stroke power and efficiency—is to start the stroke by driving the legs, then extending the hips, then pulling with the arms last. The majority of the stroke power comes from the legs and trunk. The greatest force exerted on the handle occurs in the first 40 percent of the row cycle.
