Carlos Dinares believes that many rowers don’t understandt their boat and because of that they don’t pay attention to the right things or listen at what the boat is telling them. Many of the rowers just row going through the motions like on autopilot without paying attention to what the boat is experiencing and telling them. Carlos Dinares believes that in order to row well or start a change to row better the rowers need to know how it feels to row well and what is the feedback from the boat they can get that is telling them if they are doing it right or not. Carlos Dinares uses the 2x to help rowers to learn to feel the boat and to pay attention to the right things. Carlos Dinares also uses the feedback of the rowperfect3 software to help them understand how to coordinate better their stroke and how it feels when the power curve and numbers are good.
