A recent promotion by GB Rowing sponsors, Siemens uses a photo of a girl on an erg which is just plain bad technique.
Why on earth can’t the leading rowing nation show good technique in its publicity photography?
What is wrong with this image?
- Elbows lower than wrists
- Leaning back so far her bum is bulging over the back of the seat
- No weight on the feet (toes strapped in too tight)
- Handle coming up to her high chest / chin (why finish the stroke there?)
- anything else….?
Bad ergo posture at the finish.
