Bruce Kocher is a master rower instructor for Concept 2 (when he’s not flying 767s internationally for Delta). He recently attended a CrossFit Level 1 certification seminar at Rogue Fitness in Gahanna, OH. As passionate as he is about rowing, he couldn’t help but hold several impromptu instructional sessions throughout the weekend.
In this video by CrossFit Again Faster, Bruce talks to a voluntary group of participants who decided to come in early Sunday morning to learn more about proper rowing technique. Bruce explains the role of the damper before talking about pushing the hands away quickly after the finish.
