Pro Tips Pro

  1. Move your arms smoothly towards your body at the finish of each stroke.
  2. The rest interval is important - keep moving slowly after each work piece and take sips of water after 60 seconds of the rest period.
  3. Maintain your rhythm when the rate changes - avoid going too far off your target intensity.
  4. Try to get a feel for what rowing well is like - manage your power output and your rhythm together.
