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 evaluate physiological performance in rowers and to select team members. We measured heart rate (HR), minute ventilation (VE), oxygen consumption (VO2), and carbon dioxide production (VCO2) every 30 s, and obtained ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) from 12 candidates for the 1983 United States Men's Lightweight… CONTINUE READING
