Build a good strength base in the back by rowing on a low pulley preferably with a grip similar to that of the rowing machine Because we have to play with the back and forth oscillation of our body in the rower machine it is good that we also practice the power swing in the low pulley row.
When it comes to cardiovascular exercises or activities we often do not pay the required attention to correct technique, either because there is no direct external load we have to move or because we consider that the movement is simple and does not lead to errors due to their nature.
In this article we want to say that every way has its technique : Whether you run, swim, bike or row on the rowing machine. We will also explain what should be considered when you make the latter.
Before you row with the rowing machine, there are two things to be thinking about: Thhoracic and shoulder mobility.
Improvement of your mobility and shoulder stability :
The muscles that make up this joint complex are responsible for providing stability and movement to the shoulders and scapulae. Being able to do so will give us more wealth in our movements and prevent us from possible injuries. This is because it is the most mobile joint of the body and is also the most unstable — making it more susceptible to injury.
This exercise is ideal for strengthening and strengthening our shoulder muscles.
Improve the mobility of the thoracic spine.
Working on the mobility of our thoracic or dorsal spine is key to maintain a correct posture in both daily life and sports
It is common in the case of rowing to see many people practicing it with an excessively kyphotic attitude, i.e., with a hump and without good control of spinal extension. Improving the mobility of your chest will give you the ability to keep your torso upright, resulting in superior performance by being more capable of producing more tension with your latissimus dorsi.
Firstly try the movement in the static way by starting the low pulley row
The movement on the cardiovascular – rowing machine consists of four phases: catching, driving, finishing and recovery.
Beyond the correct coordination between phases that is acquired by practice, many people do not have the necessary strength base to perform a good finishing phase that is, one in which the movement culminates with the standing action itself.
Build a good strength base in the back by rowing on a low pulley preferably with a grip similar to that used on the rowing machine
Because we need to play with the back and forth oscillation of our body in the rower machine it is good that we also practice it in the low pulley row. In this way, make your body more smoothly bounce forward during the eccentric phase and backwards during the concentric phase.
