Video from last week

Here's a clip of Mags (green boat) and me (white boat) during a workout last week. Paddling is coming along well. Nathan has returned, which is great for many reasons including that he films most of our sessions. Video is really important, especially during the autumn months when we are trying to correct technical weaknesses and build muscle memory. When I look at this video I can see that my elbows are coming too high on the exit-- they should drop down and relax-- and I need to hold my top arm back more and make sure it is coming across my face at the same speed as my hip. You can see that I am paddling too much with my upper body; there is not enough connection or leg drive.

There is always so much work to be done on technique. It is paramount to every sport!
