Ryan ready to row

What’s the best method for you, individually, for rowing calories? It’s not necessarily the form we ask for when going for a long period of time.

I know that if I do half-slides and focus on driving my heels down to extend while cranking with my strong low back and arms then I maximize my potential for rowing. That probably doesn’t work for you, but until you know you should experiment with what engines you prioritize (quads vs hamstrings, hip extension vs back extension, pulling with your arms or just finishing, etc.)
