Rowing... it seems hard no matter what you do. Especially when you're a shorty like me, but we can work to make it more efficient.
Check out the first 4 pulls. The seat stays relatively back from my ankles and my shins are in a more "vertical" position in relationship to my feet. This allows for a more powerful pull if the back angles stays the same in the drive. You will also see the return where it is hands first, then shoulders, and finally knees after the handle passes them, much like a deadlift.
The last four pulls have an inefficient return where I am leading with my knees and the shoulder lags behind. This often results in the seat tapping our heels and creates an excessive angle at the knee that we have to drive out of. You will see me have to reset my hip before starting to pull again in and effort to find the correct "catch position". No Bueno. Slow, inefficient, and less powerful. -Chris Spealler
