BOAT TRAINING – September 2014


Week 8 – Session 1

  • For the past three weeks we have concentrated on individual externals – this week we continue but look at each of these in the one session
  • We wish to look at OVERALL boat movement
  • We still wish to avoid RUSHED, VIOLENT, SUDDEN movements of hands and bodies BUT most importantly we want the following:

–       Blade traveling at constant depth below the water
–       Blade traveling at constant height above the water
–       Blade traveling at a speed through the water greater than the boat’s speed
–       Blade traveling at a speed above the water equal to the speed of the boat
–       Blade entering the water with even minor splash to front and back
–       Blade exiting the water cleanly without being enveloped by puddle
