of how it feels when one has snuck the blade quickly in at the catch, and then applies power.
It feels as if one is loading body weight, through the top hand.
This is true both for kayak and canoe. In my case, as that loading feeling commences, my torso is twisting through a relatively short arc. Couldn't be enough to aggravate an injury sensitive to torso twist. There's also a limited range contribution from the shoulder girdle, and a modest amount of downward flexion of the trunk, in canoeing, but not kayaking.
