=== Recovery ===
the recovery is when you are rolling forward on the slides toward the catch. The main focus is to keep a strong body posture.
This is the phase from the ''extraction'' to the ''catch''.
*Just after the extraction (or finish) with the oar out of the water and the face of the blade parallel to the water (the blades are ''"feathered"''). The rower has legs straight, body leaning back, and arms pulled in so that the oar handle is a few inches from the [[solar plexus]]. This is the beginning of what is called the ''recovery'' or ''the slide.''
*The rower extends the arms fully forward (toward the [[stern]]) pushing the oar away from his or her body while, at the same time, keeping the oar at a constant height with his or her legs straight, and torso leaning back.
*The rower leans the body forward to around 30 degrees past vertical, continuing to keep the oar level, not bending the knees and keeping the back straight. This stage of the recovery is sometimes referred to as "body prep".
*The rower bends the legs, bringing the sliding seat forward (i.e. toward the stern) on its rollers, while the oar remains level.
*While continuing to slide the seat forward, the rower rotates the oar handle(s), causing the face of the blade to be perpendicular to the water. This is called ''squaring'' or ''rolling up'' the blade. This, depending on the rower's technique, begins approximately when the oar handle(s) pass over the ankles.
*When the rower reaches the sternmost point of the slide, the end of the recovery, and the shins are vertical, the blade is quickly and smoothly dropped into the water by a slight lifting of the hands. This is called the ''catch''.
