Row Row Your Dragon Boat Down the Singapore River - IFC Physiotherapy Singapore

This week I wanted to dedicate our blog to our newest affiliates, the awesome British Dragon Boat team. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this hugely popular and ever expanding sport, Dragon boating is a 2000 year old form of rowing originating in China. One boat typically consists of 20 paddlers, 1 drummer or ‘caller’ to keep rhythm and 1 ‘sweep’ or steerer.

PRIMAL TRAINING - IFC Physiotherapy Singapore

While we can’t change the way we work, we can compensate for it in the way we train. Primal training helps us to relearn the fundamental movement patterns our bodies have been designed to do, this is turn allows our muscles to work within the range that they were designed for, preventing future pain and injury.
