Trainer Tip Tuesday: Proper Rowing Techniques


1. Upright torso – Think of your torso like a clock – Sitting upright in the 12 o’clock position

2. Start with a leg drive, keep your arms extended

3. Once legs are fully extended, finish by pulling the handle to your chest right below the sternum (No chicken wings!)

4. Lean slightly back (Torso at 11 AM)

5. Arms extend out

6. Lastly, legs should bend to the starting position – upright torso should be maintained, with the arms on the outside of legs

Main Points of Contact:

1. Upright torso
