15min of Mobility

In rowing the longer your stroke the further you can move the boat and ultimately the faster you can go.  Same thing applies indoors, rowing on the erg.  The only problem with that equation is your positioning.  Are you in a strong position at the catch and finish?  Today is a day to work on mobility and improve that positioning.  Take at least 15 minutes, ideally longer, to work on your tight spots.  What limits you?  Ankle flexion at the catch?  Shoulder mobility at the finish?

Share where you tend to be tight during a row as well as your problem areas for WODs. What are you doing daily to work them out?

Here’s a glimpse of practice this week for the Renegade Rowing Team!  They race at the Rumble on the River, September 15th at Community Rowing Inc.  Come cheer them on!

  1. I’m feeling pretty good, in general. I was sore from the volume of yesterday’s wod, but I foam rolled for about a half hour and I feel good. My shoulder is mostly sore from my flu shot!
