Gold standards for boat acceleration Here we continue the analysis of boat acceleration BA using the model developed in RBN 2023/01 for the evaluation of various aspects of rowing technique. Timing of the boat acceleration curve is the main indicator of“ Gold standard” of rowing technique. Its magnitude defines mainly ratio of active (rower) to passive (boat) masses. 08/03/2023 View
Modelling of boat acceleration Coaches and rowers ask: “Why are targets for the boat acceleration curve are not presented?”. Here is an attempt to develop a method of boat acceleration modelling. 09/02/2023 View
Summary of BioRow studies in 2022 2022 was a very productive year for BioRow, several interesting research projects being completed, as well as significant advances in rowing science being produced ... 02/01/2023 View
Video analysis of the World best rowers Videos of the best crews at the Worlds-2022 in Račice was taken using a HD panning camera for both gold and silver medallists in all boat types except eights. This new analysis tool opens very promising possibilities to discover many new insights of rowing technique and progress of our knowledge. 09/12/2022 View
Rowing biomechanics on-water and on RP3 A study on rowing biomechanics was recently completed during a BioRow clinic, in which handle and body segment velocities were measured on the water in singles and on the RP3 erg. 14/11/2022 View
Performance analysis of Worlds-2022 Performance analysis of Worlds-2022 This Newsletter presents scientific analysis of race results from the recent World Rowing Championships in Račice, Czech Republic. It discloses essential information on the current trends in modern elite rowing. This Newsletter provides an important insight on how races were won or lost in Račice-2022, which would be of interest to elite rowers and coaches. 04/10/2022 View
Rowing Factors FAQs Catch Factor CF indicates TIMING of the handle and seat coordination. Rowing Style Factor RSF indicates relative SPEED of the seat and handle movements during the beginning of the drive. 30/08/2022 View
Analysis of U19 and U23 Worlds in Varese Rowing speed of younger rowers is growing faster than in the Olympic category and margins between them are getting smaller. Increase in rowing speed from younger rowers to Olympic level happens by gain in both racing Stroke Rate and Work per Stroke. Both components increased similarly by about 4% on the U23-Olympic jump, but on U19-U23 jump, the increase in Work per Stroke 4.4% was significantly higher than the increase in the Stroke Rate 1.7%. 02/08/2022 View
Comparison of blade types Further experimentation to determine the most efficient blade type was recently conducted, in which testing was done in a LM2x. Fat2 blades were the most efficient at low stroke rates 20-24spm, while Comps performed slightly better at racing rates 36-37spm. Using the analysis of the velocity gain and impulse efficiency, the Comp blade shape was found to be the most efficient of the three studied. 13/07/2022 View
Blade pitch adjustment Effective bladework depends on the blade pitch – the angle between the vertical and the blade during the drive. The lateral pitch can help to maintain optimal blade depth at variations in the handle force vector direction, caused by changes in the rower’s body geometry during the drive. It is recommended to set fore-aft pin pitch to 0o, to neutralize its effect. BioRow can help you with rigging in a number of ways. 15/06/2022 View
