How to Prevent the Most Common Rowing Injuries

May / 16 / 2018

If you’ve ever dealt with a rowing injury, you’re certainly not alone. In fact, it’s very common for rowers to experience injuries caused by overuse, with the most common rowing injuries occurring in the wrist, rib cage, knee and lower back. Other risk factors such as lack of strength, poor rowing technique and over-training can also contribute to these injuries.


Here are some general rules for preventing the most common rowing injuries and speeding up recovery time.


Strengthen your core and back.

One of the best ways to avoid a back or rib injury is to incorporate strengthening and flexibility exercises for your core and back into your regular workout routine. Strength training is especially vital for rowers so that they don’t develop muscular imbalances, but it’s important not to overdo it. For example, since lower back pain can often occur after long ergometer pieces, it’s recommended that you limit these to no longer than 30 minutes.

Follow the 10% rule.

Ramping up your training load too quickly can increase your chances of injury, so rowers are advised to avoid more than a 10% increase in one week.

Customize your warm-ups.

Each rower has their own individual weaknesses, problem areas and mobility restrictions. To help prevent injuries, your warm-up should be tailored to suit your specific needs. Consider working with a functional movement practitioner to customize your warm-up routines.

Improve hydration, nutrition and sleep.

Even the most diligent and well-prepared rowers can still experience injuries. And when this happens, a quick recovery time is key. Drinking plenty of water, eating the right foods and getting eight hours of sleep per night can all help to increase your recovery time and get you back on the water pain-free.

Keep in mind that if you’re a rower and you’re dealing with pain of any kind, you should always consult a trainer or doctor right away.

Rowing Tips: Preparing for a Race

Apr / 18 / 2018

Spring has sprung, and with it comes to the start of racing season for crew teams across the country. Before rowers hit the water, they’ll need to get back into the swing of their pre-race routines.

Here are four key rowing tips to include in your race preparation:

Get plenty of sleep.

With pre-race nerves keeping you on edge, getting a good night’s sleep before a race is easier said than done. But that doesn’t make it any less important. Try your best to get a full eight hours, bearing in mind that this could mean going to bed earlier than usual so you can wake up early to eat and fully digest your breakfast.

Eat well and stay hydrated.

When preparing for a race, you should always eat a balanced meal the night before. Remember that carbohydrates are your friend, so a pasta dish is ideal. You’ll also need to eat breakfast the day of the race so that you’re not going full speed ahead on an empty stomach. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time to digest.

Know your race strategies.

Do you know your race plan? Now, what about the backup plan? It’s important to be prepared for different scenarios, because you never know what can happen during a race. Visualize these strategies in your mind and commit them to memory so that they feel like second nature on the big day. This will help you stay nice and focused during your race preparation.
 

Warm up—physically and mentally.

Warming up before a race not only increases the heart rate and warms the muscles, it also helps you focus on what’s ahead. In addition to the physical exercises, prepare yourself mentally by taking deep, controlled breaths and being mindful of your surroundings. Listen to music or take some quiet moments to visualize your race plans. Whatever helps you remain calm and focused.

Race preparation doesn’t stop once you’re on the water. Are you prepared for the winding waterways and potential obstacles in your boat’s path?  Discover how Hyndsight’s Cruz Camera and Monitor System provides clear visualization to make you a better rower. (Yes, it’s approved for use in competition by the USRowing Referee Committee!)
