If I get a new rower or a rower that is not moving the boat well this is what I do:
I run the 15 KEY HOT BASICS of Rowing to be sure he understands them well and learns to do them.
I know that by understanding them and doing them well, the rower will start developing correctly.
1- Grip to the oar.
2- Footstretcher placement in the boat.
3- Hip rotation.
4- Drive sequence.

7- Oarlock and oars collars work during stroke.
8- Timing at the catch and release.
9- Connection to the water.
11- Floating motion.

15- Hands and feet pressure and feel.
