Rowing is a sport of speed and endurance using extremely tapered boats in which athletes sit on movable seats (called 'trolleys'), sliding or fixed seats oriented towards the stern, and use oars to move the boat. This sport can be practised on rivers, lakes or at sea. The main differences in the boats used for rowing are the number of crew members, the number of oars operated by each rower, which may be one ('top') or two ('pair'), and the presence or absence of a helmsman (we therefore speak of 'with' and 'without'). In so-called long boats, i.e. those with more than one rower, the figure of the rowing leader is very important, i.e. the person who sits on the first trolley from the stern. His task is to set the right pace (ratio between pass and recovery) for the boat and to choose the right racing strategy.

What are the benefits?

Rowing trains all muscle groups, improves endurance and relieves anxiety.

It is in fact considered one of the most complete sports because it mobilises all muscles. Just watch the rowers in action: shoulders, legs, back, abdomen, lumbar muscles are stressed to push, balance and steer the boat: 90% of the muscles work. In addition, specific movements promote muscular flexibility, agility and coordination.
