PADDLECHICA: Dragon Boat Help! How to Ask For It, How to Offer It

Posted by Kristin Stickels on

This article was originally published on Paddlechica.com. As adults, we often find it difficult to ask for help or clarification when we don’t understand something.

There is something frightening about asking for help from those who are better than us. We tend to put people up on a pedestal and perceive them as more important than ourselves, making it nearly impossible to request any assistance.

Get the Right Rowing Cushion to Save Your Bum

Posted by Hornet Watersports on

When it comes to working out, comfort is essential. Minimizing and removing excuses that get between you and your workout is important, especially when you’re used to taking a seat on a Concept 2 rowing machine. Pain while rowing often develops in two places: your lower back and your butt. “Lower-back pain usually results from improper form,” explains Neil Totton, an instructor at CityRow in New York City. “Weak abdominal muscles can cause rowers to overcompensate in the lower spine, which can lead to lower-back pain.” Once you have your form down on an indoor rowing machine, the one place...
