Dragonboat Drill: Train The Back Body And Avoid Improper Hinging

This is a drill you can use either on the boat or on land. This dragonboat drill trains the back extensors to be strong enough to handle the load of our hinge. Often times our “hinge” collapses when the back body isn’t strengthened to manage the load of our extension to the catch, or hinge.

 This exercise will wake up the chain or patterning of the back body.

 Hinging in rotation gives us the ability to land the full core on the water rather than just the arms.

Give this a try. Drop a comment and let me know how it goes!
