    Hi I have a concept 2 and theoretically am a fit guy I road bike/ mountain bike at a reasonable amateur level 3 hour training rides and swim freestyle recreationally getting in 3km per session in an hour at the moment.

    My rowing is a totally different story it used to come naturally as a younger person same as most people. I remember getting around 7.15 for 2000M. I’m 43 and somehow I’ve got myself in a position where technique -wise I can barely row at all.
    I can’t extend my arms properly and if I do its with a huge amount of effort. I’m not pushing off with the legs properly I’m leading with the arms I’m hitting my legs on the way back. etc. In short its all over the place I’m locked out to a degree I’m not getting a workout and wasting my time trying. Its been like this for 3 – 4 years and every now and then I try again and its just not happening.

    I know all the stuff you point out in your guidance above but I just can’t seem to put it into action. Really frustrating.
    Don’t know if flexibility is an issue. it may be.
    I don’t have any physical problems other than pronated joints in my feet that will require an operation at some point.

    Really frustrating because if I crack it I know I will improve so quickly and get back to rowing for an hour plus at a time.
