I am looking for a diagram of the angle of the wrist throughout the sculling stroke. I am being told that the wrist should always be in line with the forearm and not ‘cock’. However on all videos I study wrists cock as the blade is moved away from the body. Can you help clearly clarify with a pictorial explanation if possible?

Well that’s a great question because as you clearly say the “ideal” is not what most people row!

Here’s the page of explanation about the finish from our series “Rowing Coach” on the Rowperfect website

Also read the page about grip – which has photos for sweep and sculling

You can get to all the other ones from the top menu under “Rowing Coach”

However, I recommend the British Rowing Technique slides which Rosie Mayglothling presented at our seminar and are available as a free download in the Rowperfect shop.

There are great photos and summary text which you can use.

Let us know how you get on.
