Linda shows proper erg technique

 

Are you new to rowing or have you been away from it for a while? Learn how to get the most out of your Indoor Rowing Machine in this hour-long video from coach Linda Muri.  You will learn how to sit properly on your erg and position your feet for maximum comfort.  The complete rowing stroke from the catch, through the drive to the finish, and through the recovery back to the catch is shown along with proper (and improper) body positions along the way.  An overview of the Concept 2 performance meter is also given for those who want to keep track of their workouts and learn how to coach themselves to better form.
