Indoor Rowing Technique Workshop says
FitWit will host an indoor rowing technique workshop led by Cassi Niemann on Sunday, October 25th from 9-11 am. This workshop is designed for anyone who is getting started on the indoor rower or looking to improve power output by perfecting their technique.

Over the course of 2 hours of hands-on work, you’ll learn:

How to appropriately set up your machine to work for you. We’ll discuss damper and drag settings, monitor numbers and general erg output.

Proper rowing technique: Rowing is all about an efficient sequence of movements. We’ll break down the rowing stroke into parts and explain why and how you can get more distance out of each stroke.

Injury prevention: how to protect your lower back from strain and how to use the right muscles at the right time.

The rowing stroke is one of the few movements that includes a “rest” between each power application. We’ll show you how to preserve your energy during the recovery so you can directly apply it during the drive. By doing so, you’ll learn to eliminate wasted energy and find a rhythm that will carry you through any workout.

You’ll also receive practical tools to help you to continue to improve your rowing:

Each participant will receive individual stroke analysis with video and be provided with tips to improve rowing technique over time.

We will help you prepare for potential upcoming indoor races (Head of the Bot 5K Row on 11/21 or the Atlanta Erg Sprints in February), by discussing race strategies, starts, pacing and overall competition in general.

We invite you to attempt a baseline 1000 meter piece before the workshop and come with your time recorded. At the end of the event, we will test 1000 meters and see how your time may have improved.
