The rowing stroke: timing and micro-moments

Understanding the micro-moments of the rowing stroke is vital for crew cohesion and efficient rhythm. Coach consultant Robin Williams explains more

In this article I am going to look at the moments of time that make up the rowing stroke, and those micro-moments or high-skill areas in particular, like the entry and the connection. It’s not too difficult at low rates because there is plenty of time (novices might disagree), and if you are a bit off your timing, you can largely get away with it, or so it seems. At higher speeds and race rate, however, understanding these moments is essential for crew cohesion and efficient rhythm.
