We’ve got a new book for the new year – Blisters.

A perennial source of discussion among rowers is how to deal with blisters.  Everyone gets them and overcoming the soreness and preventing infection and enforced idleness due to poor hand skin management is a skill you can learn.  It also de-bunks the myths about blisters like peeing on your hands and whether to use meths to harden your skin.

This booklet shares knowledge gained from years of rowing and coaching and gives you

  • 6 ways to treat a rowing blister
  • slide bites and “rowers bum”
  • 3 ways to avoid rowing blisters
  • the unseen dangers of water-borne infection
  • detailed photos of how to strap up your fingers and palm

Buy it from the Rowperfect shop Rowing Blisters and Skin Injuries

  1. The more often you row, the less likelihood of blisters. Your hands develop callouses eventually, and they can cope with any amount of training, It all goes back to how keen you are to get past the initial blisters and sore bottom etc to develop your body into a training machine which resists overuse of parts of your body ie hands, and develops thicker skin in the vital areas which are the most open to blisters. It also depends on how you are holding the oars/sculling blade handles. If the blade handle is held in your fingers in a relaxed fashion rather than in the palm of your hand you can manipulate the blade more successfully and this will stop the amount of wear and tear on your hands.
