The short answer to your daughter’s dilemma is to practice, practice, practice.

As a new learner, a lot of improvement will come from building up physical adaptations i.e. training muscles and getting stronger.

The longer answer is that some technique coaching, a training programme and more practice will also help.

You don’t say how old she is – but you should beware children wanting to train too hard on the Concept2 as it can strain muscles and her back without careful guidance, particularly if she’s still growing.
