Pro Tips Pro

  1. Move your hands away from the finish smoothly.
  2. Break down each piece as a separate challenge to be completed. Approach each one as a stand alone workout - don't think about the next or the last workout.
  3. Concentrate on changing rate and power together. Learn to get the feeling of higher rate and higher power (speed) working together.
  4. Don't work too hard - focus on enjoying the rhythm and flow of the rowing movement.
