Pro Tips Pro

  1. Sit up and pitch your body slightly forward on the recovery phase.
  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. Keep the same good rowing rhythm when the rates change. Look for a ratio of 1:2 - 1 part drive phase and 2 parts recovery phase.
  4. Never forget to enjoy the rhythm of the rowing movement and use it to build your motivation for more training in future.
  5. Have some water ready to drink for after the warm up during the rest phase and at end of the workout.
