Set up as a sliding single, the indoor rower moves back and forth under you, more like rowing on the water. You get a quicker catch and can row at a higher stroke rate, because you aren’t moving your body mass—you are only moving the mass of the indoor rower.
Team Boat Slide
Connect Models D and/or E Indoor Rowers to create a team boat slide. A great training tool for coaches, creating a team boat slide makes your crew work together.
Construction: Each slide consists of a base with two tracks and a wheeled carriage that runs on the tracks. Light bungee cord tension keeps the carriage centered on the base.
Number needed: Slides are sold in pairs and spares. You’ll need two slides (a pair), to “float” one indoor rower: one slide each for the front and back legs. To create a team boat slide, you’ll need a pair plus a spare for each additional indoor rower you plan to connect. For example, to connect two indoor rowers, you’ll need three slides: a pair and a spare. To connect three indoor rowers, you’ll need four slides: two pairs.
