Grinders have always use their arms. Until now.
The new boat uses pedals rather than handles.
Our lower body can generate over three times more force than our our upper body.
“It’s about being able to get your boat set up as efficiently as you possibly can. We’ve only got a certain amount of power that the guys can put in, so we’ve got to be able to prioritise the energy usage around the track,” Team NZ skipper Glenn Ashby explained
Prioritising your own energy usage is something you need to pay attention to.
