Everything you need to be successful at crew!
Josh Gladstone, Staff Writer
The video above is a demonstration of the correct rowing form that all rowers work so hard to perfect. An erg is an indoor rowing machine that allows rowers to practice their form and get a good workout without actually being on the water. Above, an athlete uses one of the machines, going through the sections of the stroke: the catch(start), the drive(the push back with the legs), the finish(the lean of the back and curl of the arms) and the recovery(sliding back up to the catch).
