Rowing is a sport with requires a high level of power over a set period. Most of the power comes from the drive of the legs, while maintaining stability through the trunk to transfer to the oar.

To become a better rower it is essential that we break down the movement patterns to develop the different movements as required.

A deadlift is a great way to develop posterior chain muscular. A bent over row requires trunk stability while performing a rowing movement and this truck stabilisation exercise test the 'core' muscles to reduce weakness.

Breastfeeding or bottle feeding for 1 year is approximately 1800 hours. A full-time job is 1920 hours per year.
For all those Mumma’s with upper back and neck tightness, take 5 minutes to look after you. Whether
breastfeeding or bottle feeding, here are some stretches and tips to help improve your posture and give you
some relief:

Thoracic extension on a foam roller or rolled up towel – great to balance out the time spent in a hunched,
flexed posture. You can lay here for as long as is comfortable, 1-5mins for a strong chest and back stretch!
Add in some arm openings for a dynamic stretch, slowly opening one arm out at a time.

Feeding posture correction – bring your baby up to the breast/bottle rather than breast/bottle down to baby!
This can be achieved by supporting your baby on pillows/cushions, whilst ensuring your lower and upper back
are supported against a chair.

Lower back and hip stretch – sitting for prolonged periods can result in lower back and hip flexor tightness. By
rotating your knees with your feet shoulder width apart, you are simultaneously stretching your lower back
and opening your hips. This can be repeated 5-6 times each side, add in your pelvic floor exercises for bonus
points!
