Biomechanics of technical drills Technical drills are widely used for teaching novices, and the perfecting of rowing technique. 14 drills were identified as the standard sequence of a technical session and were performed 1 min each in M4x equipped with the BioRowTel measurement system. 04/01/2017 View
Recovery phase and boat speed efficiency Only the stroke rate and length of seat travel affect the boat speed variation and efficiency; other characteristics of the recovery phase appeared to have no effect on it. The length of legs drive should be optimal and excessive seat travel could be counter- productive 19/12/2016 View
The Biomechanics of the recovery phase The “mirror principle” was statistically confirmed: A well-timed preparation of the trunk (“pivoting around hips”) during the middle of recovery is related to its later engagement during the drive and the most optimal sequence. Later, trunk preparation during the recovery (“diving into the catch”) is related to an early “opening” of the trunk during the drive, which is inefficient. 22/11/2016 View
Effect of using Catch Training System An experimental evaluation of the effect of using the BioRow Catch Training System (CTS) was recently conducted on a group of nine junior scullers. 29/10/2016 View
Trends of boat speed, stroke rate and race strategy after Rio-2016 Olympics In Rio-2016 Olympics, the races were won by means of longer distance per stroke and a higher effectiveness of work per stroke, not by higher stroke rate. The winners had higher boat speed over the first and last 500m sections, and relatively lower speed in the middle of the race. 1.4% higher effective Work per Stroke creates the probability for a crew to move one place up in final ranking. 26/10/2016 View
