Injuries - Body Mechanics

I've posted up before about the left 'sleepy leg' and had plenty of good feedback. Now in my sophomore year of OC1 paddling, I'm noticing issues with this aging bod. Mainly, I have super tight hamstrings, hip flexors seem 'pinched' (have an XM with a huki seat which is nice), and found tightness in my thoracic area.

I'm working with a trainer regarding body mechanics and working opposite muscle groups, specific rotational stretches.

Sprint Regatta Turns

Perhaps someone on the forum can provide some input here. I have always understood that seats 3, 4 and 5 are supposed to 'back off' during a turn and essentially be ready to come alive on the 'out'. My question is this - at what point do they back off? The uni? The kahi? Both?
