    RowingStarring Penny Williams

    THE CATCHNotice Pennys body positions. Her arms are straight and her kneesand hips are compressed in a way that still allows her back to be flat.Her head is in a neutral position and her heels are slightly off the footpieces. You will notice that these positions allow her to get thehandle quite close to the machine.

    THE DRIVE Part 1Here you can see that Pennyhas begun the drive usingher legs and by pressing theheels flat. The arms arestill relaxed and straight,and the hips are still in thesame position as in thecatch. Utilizing the legsfirst ensures she gets themost power from each pull.

    THE DRIVE Part 2Notice that Penny has begun to open her hips in this picture. Her legsare almost fully straightened at this point but her arms are stillrelaxed. The hip opening should be done with a flat back and it shouldbe a powerful and quick movement.

    THE FINISHAt this point, Penny hascompletely straightened herlegs, her hips are open andshe has pulled the handlewith her elbows back to justbelow her rib cage. Noticefrom the first picture howlong her pull is once shereaches this extendedposition.

    THE RECOVERY Part 1The very first step in the recovery should be the relaxing of the arms.Notice that Penny s arms are again relaxed and she has begun to closeher hips. Also notice that her knees are still straight. She will keepthem straight until the handle passes her knees. This will allow the

    handle to travel in a straight line.THE RECOVERY Part 2Here the handle has passedPennys knees so she willbegin to bend the knees inand return to the catchposition. The recoveryshould be about half thespeed of your drive. If ittakes 1 second to finish thedrive then it should take 2seconds to return to thecatch position.

    THE RECOVERY An OverviewIt is called the recovery for a reasonIt is your time to recover from thepowerful drive. Notice how relaxedPenny looks as she returns to the catchposition. Also notice how her handletravels in a straight line, which is veryefficient. The shortest distancebetween 2 points is a straight line.
