Rowing Machine: The Subtle Mistake You're Probably Making
5 Rowing Machine Mistakes You’re Making
Mistake #1: Pulling the handle rather than pushing with their legs
The fix:A powerful leg drive starts every stroke – your quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteals fire up to push you along.
Mistake #2: Bending the back rather than sitting up tall
The fix:This is a really common mistake which can easily be rectified by adjusting the machine to fit your body when you first get on it. For example, when you get on to the machine, change the height of the monitor to eye level and adjust the footplate to help improve your posture, sit more comfortably and get a good starting position.
Mistake #3: Going too quickly up and down the slide, they should take time on the recovery to give themselves time to breathe
The fix:Think of it as slowing down to speed up – as you recover and breathe, it gives you time to get ready to use that leg strength on the next stroke.
Mistake #4: Putting the resistance all the way up to 10
The fix:It's better to put the damper lever at 4 or below so they can maintain good technique for the whole of their workout. You’ll also find that you will maintain good form and consistency.
