We’re rowers. We’re supposed to have back problems and sacroiliac joint dysfunction, right? Of course not! While it’s true that the nature of the sport places a tremendous demand on the spine and pelvis, pain in this area is highly preventable through technique modifications and, as we highlight here, an emphasis on a symmetrical stroke. When part of the body’s kinetic chain is off-kilter, it stands to reason that even a small degree of imbalance can affect joints all the way up the chain. One of the biggest offenders? A differential in leg length.
My first business job after my military service was selling mainframe computers for IBM. IBM was a premium provider. They charged a little more than their competition, but their equipment, software and service always delivered a lot more value to the customer. The quote below was shared with me while I was there; I have always carried a copy in my brief case as a reminder.
Congratulations to so many of the teams rowing Resolute and making us proud to build boats that are built to last and made to go fast! It was an incredible weekend of accomplishment and mind-over-matter as these teams faced off with unprecedented weather conditions and some steep competition. Here are a few of the #ResoluteNation highlights from this year’s event. Did we miss your’s? Send us an email; we’d love to hear your HOCR52 achievements!
