This week has been one of our most entertaining and interesting in a long while. We were contracted to consult with India’s newest and most technologically advanced rowing center, the SWSC, located on campus at the Sri Ramachandra Arthroscopy & Sports Sciences Center (SRASSC), with the focus of an ambitious…
If you want to maximize your performance at any level, a good place to start is supporting how you move with proven equipment.
Almost 400 athletes, 47 countries, 14 Olympic Boat Classes and 1 final chance. Watch as Josh Dunkley Smith (AUS) talks us through his Olympic experience and why it means so much.
Literature states that 30-50 per cent of rowers will have an episode of low back pain each year. Clearly this is a problem.
This is a question we get a lot from social media and web inquiries so it’s clearly one many rowing athletes consider. With $375 million + spent on over-the-counter orthotics in the last few years, it makes sense – many of you have them.
The legs are never truly isolated, they have an important role on the spine, pelvis, ribs and upper limbs, even the neck and head.
We always have a lens focused on lower limb mechanics and how they effect the entire rowing movement.
The rowing stroke is one of the few activities where we are loading the foot and ankle in a horizontal plane (or in a seated position instead of standing).
“Why when we erg do we wear running shoes when those shoes are in fact designed to absorb force in order to reduce load?”
Obtaining the best performance means getting the best out of our physiology and mechanics.
Inflictors of almost tortuous levels of pain post exercise – are foam rollers really helping us?
