Rowing Posture To Minimize Back Pain 

Rowing is just like lifting, if you keep your back strait you’re much less likely to get back pain.  Rounding your back under load whether squatting, deadlifting or rowing, you’re bound to get hurt eventually.

The solution is to sit tall and try to get a “neutral spine”.

Prior to your pull be sure to keep you heels down and not to round forward (reaching with your back) to get more distance to pull through.  Sit tall and only rock forward as far as you can with a strait back.

If you have trouble keeping a neutral spine you may need to work on your hip mobility.  Think groin, hamstrings and t-spine extension.    http://www.mobilitywod.com is an excellent source for mobility!  If you’re a serious CrossFit athlete you should be watching it at least 3 days a week.
