One link is a basic CrossFit overview of “how to” row, it breaks down the mechanics and body positioning.
The other link is called “The Exact Correlation Between Height, Weight, and Rowing Performance”.
You might find these interesting and perhaps you will find a little more love in your heart for the Concept 2 Rowing Machine.
Did you know… ?
- “A female’s weight accounts for 30%-43% of the performance variance in rowing.” @fitness.analytics
- This equates roughly to a 6 pound increase = 1% further row.
- It is true that taller people typically weigh more, but in this (Wodapalooza Event 6) workout the more important factor was weight.
