Anybody have experience training rowers, or have some good advice?
I don’t have any experience with rowers but I recall having done a research paper for one of my sports medicine courses on the epidemiological injuries on rowers, so this may help a little. The prominant findings were that many rowers were injurying their upper thoracic musculature, mostly the serratus anterior. Some rowers also eperienced hairline fractures of the 2nd & 3rd rib towards the midline of the body closer to sternum articulation. There may have been others but thats all I recall, sorry. I did all my research on PubMed, so you can start there if you want to research yourself.
i’ve heard about injuries to the ribs, but not about the serratus anterior!
