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.

thanks vito,

i’ve heard about injuries to the ribs, but not about the serratus anterior!
