THE BATTERED ROWER
The forward / introduction is free to download
The commencement of 38+ Chapters, yes ROWING ' Isims ' by 'The Feathering Ferret'
For too many years the expectations on rowers, coxswains, coaches and administrators continues to take its toll. The attrition rate is far too high due to pushing them beyond their limits, physically, mentally, financially etc. So the Ferret wants to provoke thought along these lines. Not to reinvent the wheel but lubricate it a little. Hence these chapters will hopefully take us to play in the puddle and not keep diving head first into it year after year.
The Ferret has some new and old, some crazy, ideas if you dare open the lid and take a peep to help you to live a life more passionate about rowing, e.g. The measure of success? Are school rowers just fodder?, What is a force curve? we can, Row better not harder!!!
The Intro - P4 ' The Chicken or the Egg ' Fifty five years in the cooking. By chapter 6 you may see the light. Hopefully we can setup many new rowers before their neuro-muscular programming is 'set', to be another .....BATTERED ROWER
Confusing for some but how does one prioritize rowing's many skills, equipment set-up etc, to row efficiently with P4 perfection?
The Ferret's ideas are just that. P4 once understood, works to eliminate boat stop and promote boat speed , yes, at the 'catch'
