Rowing Prerequisites...

Ok, maybe they truly aren't prerequisites, but these things certainly seem essential.  

You've got to be able to bend… your ankles, knees, and hips!

Hold your back upright, with proper posture.

Hold your back straight, with proper poster, while sitting.

Sit, with a straight back, and lean forward 20 degrees, and then lean back 10 degrees!

Rowing also uses the arms, you'll need to move your shoulders, elbows, and wrists in a rowing motion.  You can try this out on an erg or doing the "rowing" lift, with a light weight bar.

The goal of this web site is to be a single site source of answers, for all of the questions Des Moines Rowing Club Novice rowers have.  If you have some novice rowing questions this site doesn't address, please send the questions to the web master using the contact form ___________________________________________________________________________
