    Why is it, that you row sitting backwards?

    The design of the human body requires this position to provide maximum efficiency … sort of like why we walk on our feet instead of our hands … not that walking on your hands would not be fun … it’s just not efficient! Legs are way stronger and they are also the driving force behind an oar stroke. Mind you holding the oar handles with your feet would be tricky too! Thx for the comment?
