Exaggerated Lean Back



Occurs when the user over exaggerates the use of the torso through the early part of the Drive and at the Release

Tell tale signs include;

• The body leans too far back as seen in the animation above

• The torso is used to draw the handle back rather than using the legs and arms


Tips for correction

• Focus on sitting tall and just past the vertical at the end of the Drive in the Release position (see Check Point 1)

• Focus on using the legs for the first part of the Drive and finishing with drawing in the handle to the body

• Focus on sitting tall yet relaxed throughout the rowing stroke
