SummaryElite oarsmen and oarswomen possess large body dimensions and show outstadning aerobic and anaerobic qualities. [...] Key Result Aerobic and anaerobic calculations show that 70 to 75% of the energy necessary to row the standard 2000m distance for men is derived from aerobiosis while the remaining 25 to 30% is anaerobic. Women achieve V̇O2max values of 4.1 ± 0.4 L/min and slightly lower anaerobic values than men. The relative 60 to 65% energy contribution of aerobic metabolism and 35 to 40% for…Expand

TLDR
Data indicate that rowing technique and training may improve explaining why results become approximately 0.7 sec faster per year. Expand
Physical and physiological profiles of Malaysian dragon boat rowers.
TLDR
Maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) and maximal workload attained (WLmax) were determined in 28 Malaysian dragon boat rowers who were exercised to exhaustion on an arm ergometer, representing the first measurements of their kind performed on dragon boatRowers in Malaysia. Expand
Influence of Ergometer Design on Physiological Responses during Rowing.
TLDR
It was showed that rowing efficiency and blood lactate accumulation were lower on the Concept2 dynamic ergometer than on its stationary counterpart, and its utilization requires a specific evaluation of physiological responses during an incremental exercise for an adapted management of training. Expand
Science and medicine of rowing: A review
TLDR
Performance is strongly related to the power output at the ‘anaerobic threshold’, and lactate measures provide a guide to an appropriate intensity of endurance training. Expand
Aerobic and anaerobic energy during a 2-km race simulation in female rowers
TLDR
The maximal aerobic power (V˙O2max) and maximal anaerobic capacity (AODmax) of 16 female rowers were compared to their peak aerobic power and peak anaerilic capacity during a simulated 2-km race on a rowing ergometer. Expand
The Relation Between Anaerobic Power and Rowing Ergometer Performance of Elite Rowers
Background: The aim of this study is to determine the relation between anaerobic power outputs and 2000 meter rowing ergometer scores. Method: Randomly selected nine elite youth male rowersExpand
Differences in Physiological Responses During Rowing and Cycle Ergometry in Elite Male Rowers
TLDR
It is demonstrated that elite rowers can attain similar V˙O2PEAK scores regardless of modality and given the lack of consistency between CII and WB power output, other physiological measures, such as HR, are better suited to prescribe WB ergometer sessions. Expand
Oarside and nonoarside knee extensor strength measures and their relationship to rowing ergometer performance.
TLDR
Comparisons of oarside and nonoarside knee extensor strength of intercollegiate rowers and the relationship between joint-specific strength measures and rowing ergometer performance concluded that a tendency may exist for light-weight sweep rowers to develop greater strength in the oarsid knee extensors. Expand
Respiratory responses of elite oarsmen, former oarsmen, and highly trained non-rowers during rowing, cycling and running
TLDR
The data are consistent with a ventilatory limitation to maximal performance in rowing that may have been partly overcome by training in the elite oarsmen, and also suggest that submaximal rowing does not restrict ventilation. Expand
Comparison of rowing on a concept 2 stationary and dynamic ergometer.
Biomechanical and physiological responses to rowing 1000 m at a power output equivalent to a 2000 m race were compared in 34 collegiate rowers (17 women, 17 men) rowing on a stationary and dynamicExpand

Anaerobic threshold measurements of elite oarsmen.
TLDR
Measurement of heart rate at AT has provided coaches and athletes an objective method of determining the intensity of training sessions and substantiates previous energy cost data recorded during simulated rowing during which work was 70% aerobic and 30% anaerobic. Expand
Energy expenditure during simulated rowing.
TLDR
O2 debt and lactate measurements attest to the severity of exercise and dominance of anaerobic metabolism during early stages of work. Expand
The physiology of rowing
TLDR
Rowing competitions for males are performed over a distance of 2000 m and last 5.8–7.4 min, which is being improved by 0.01 min per year, and a direct relationship is demonstrated between the average maximal oxygen uptake of the crew and their placing in an international regatta. Expand
Cardiorespiratory response to exercise on a rowing and bicycle ergometer.
TLDR
Apparently, the development of VO2 max on the bicycle ergometer was characterized by a larger VE/VO2 when compared with the rowing ergometer, which may limit the abdominal muscles' ability to aid in the expiratory phase of the breathing cycle. Expand
Seasonal variables among physiological variables in elite oarsmen.
TLDR
Although seasonal effects were expected, the unusually large differences in metabolic and strength capacities between IS and OS reflect a high degree of training specificity. Expand
Comparison of 6-min "all-out" and incremental exercise tests in elite oarsmen.
A high aerobic capacity is an important criterion for rowing success. Two exercise protocols, the 6-min "all-out" (6M-AO) and progressive incremental (PI) tests, have been used to evaluateExpand

TLDR
It is suggested that IRS, but not isometric strength of individual muscle groups limits rowing performance. Expand
Maximal oxygen uptake and muscle fiber types in trained and untrained humans.
TLDR
Among subjects with the same fiber composition, Vo2 max was higher in the athletes than in the moderately trained, and all groups taken together demonstrated a positive relationship between Vo2max and the relative number of ST fibers. Expand
Anthropometric characteristics of female Olympic rowers.
TLDR
Fractionation of body mass by a four-component model showed the rowers to have similar percent skeletal and residual masses, lower percent fat and higher percent muscle mass than students. Expand
