Paddle entry: paddle action matters needing attention!
How to practice a very stretched paddle posture on land, while repeatedly emphasizing the attention of the head up and chest paddle.
First of all, we still have to take pains to remind everyone that when paddling, we should look up at the front, not at the paddle blades and feet. This is not a stretch. At the same time, the forward extension of the paddle blades cannot reach the maximum stroke. At the same time, if we paddle with chest hunchback, it is also easy to have waist pain, so we must pay attention to hold up our chest!
If you look ahead with your head held high, it is also very helpful when practicing quick hand changes.
From our side display, in fact, when many paddlers first started rowing, they were reluctant to look up at the front due to balance problems, so when shooting videos, in many cases they were rowing with their heads bowed and their movements were not very easy, so it is suggested that everyone should pay attention to raising their heads and raising their chests!
When you raise your head and hold your chest high, the paddle can extend further, but at this time you need to pay attention to using the paddle to press the water to support your body forward. This simple water pressing stroke is a test of the balance foundation. Under the condition of good balance foundation, the paddle efficiency can be improved.
However, we must pay attention to the basic method of paddling the core muscle group in advance. Only after the basic practice is good, this kind of forward movement will be completed better.
The action of turning the paddle is an action that beginners of paddle board must practice well. Although they will not be used to it at first, only after practicing the action of turning the paddle well can the overall action be completed more efficiently.
Another thing that needs to be emphasized is that you must lift your hands high enough to form a line with your body. It is difficult to lift your hands high at first, but after you get used to it, you will find that your paddle posture is more relaxed and your paddle efficiency will be higher.
In the end, we gradually raised our heads and pushed our buttocks to turn the paddle. After all the exercises are well coordinated, we will paddle again, which will stretch more smoothly.
