Oar force and oar angle data resulting from a 6-min maximal rowing ergometer test undertaken by novice (n = 9), good (n = 23) and national (n = 9) level male rowers, were used to identify biomechanical performance variables which accurately discriminated between rowers of differing ability levels. The variables included two work capacity measures, mean propulsive power output per kilogram of body mass (W kg-1) and propulsive work consistency (%), and two skill variables, stroke-to-stroke… CONTINUE READING
