In celebration of National Learn to Row Day, our fitness experts at Hydrow have selected three technique workouts that will help you improve your form no matter where you are in your Hydrow journey. If you complete these three rows between June 5th (National Learn to Row Day) and June 15th, you’ll have successfully completed the Form Check Challenge—and you’ll earn a new badge to celebrate your achievement!
Spearheaded by USRowing, National Learn to Row Day celebrates the power of rowing by inviting newcomers to experience it for the first time. While the basics of the rowing motion are easy to master, experienced rowers—including Hydrow Athletes—will tell you that there are always opportunities to continue to improve your technique. Focusing on your form trains your body to move efficiently so that you can get more from each workout and finish your rows feeling stronger and more satisfied.
Form Check Challenge
Complete the following three workouts between Saturday, June 5th (National Learn to Row Day) and Tuesday, June 15th at 11:59 pm local time to receive your Form Check Challenge badge. Easily find these workouts in your on-demand library by filtering for Workout Style: Technique, Duration, Athlete, and Workout Type. You can also favorite the workouts in your Hydrow app, making them convenient to find and complete later.

This row will help you master the basics of your rowing stroke by breaking it down into three distinct movements.
15-min Sweat, “Short Slide Row” with Aquil released on 5/11/21
