Understanding rib stress fractures and the mechanics behind them in rowing; We have posted quite a lot about rib stress fractures and any commentary on them has always been in our most popular articles so we thought we give you the chance to access a previous Row360 magazine article we wrote on the mechanical aspects of their etiology or cause. This is by no means the only path to a ‘stressie’, nutritional and physiological factors are also key yet these mechanical issues are in most cases easily modifiable or even avoidable.
The fact that we have just released a new shoe in partnership with Bont Cycling, the Project B Collaboration , which aims to add foot stability and control from the feet up in all phases of the stroke, also gives us a good excuse to re-explore why the feet are so important in affecting our movement chain, even to the level of the ribs and higher.
