Improving Performance through Video

One of the main difficulties training for crew is the limited amount of dialog to discuss technique while rowing. Rowing is a combination of technique and physical prowess.

Physically, time constraints usually aren’t much of a problem. Rowers can turn their free time into exercise time. They can run, lift, and work ergs in order to improve their overall physical performance.

But there is also the question of technique. This is very difficult to improve since it is often tough for rowers to understand how their bodies are actually moving.

Washington Post All-Met Rowing – Further Thoughts…

VASRA – Virginia Championships Videos – 22 May 2010

The races are done, the weather was very good, and we didn’t get rained on. Below are the videos I took of the races.

If I moved away from a racer it was because I didn’t think their position would change by the finish. Sorry – but hopefully these are better than nothing 🙂

All the videos I have are posted – you can also look at the NewCuriousThoughts youtube channel
