Rest Day 5/23/13:
Check your Technique – Use the Force Curve!
What do you need work on?
Set the monitor to display the force curve during your next warmup to really dial in body awareness and technique. Below is a video I took of :30 pieces that were programmed in January. Listen carefully and you might hear me calling hustles for each Renegade to continue working on the changes they addressed in their warmup.
Use today as an active rest day and take 15 minutes to row light and focus on form. Make everything feel smooth. Watch your power curve on the monitor, is it a smooth inverted parabola? Where’s the peak? Throw in some pauses on different parts of the recovery. Be in control of your stroke at all times and maintain good posture. If you find something that seems jerky or out of control try to change it and make it different. Experiment a little and have some fun!
