When the weather warms up, will you be ready to get back on the water?  more

New data obtained using the recently developed BioRow 4D handle force sensor allows derivation of fine details of force transmission from rower to oar  more

It’s a new year and a good time to get back to the basics. With every group we coach, we begin with an explanation of three basic principles. We feel these are integral to efficient rowing and should be incorporated into every rowing stroke, whether sweeping, sculling, or erging.

A look at the Biomechanics of the recovery phase, including handle, seat, trunk, and arm velocity  more
