INTRODUCTION Maximal rowing power-velocity relationships that exhibit ascending and descending limbs and a local maximum have not been reported. Further, duty cycle (portion of the stroke occupied by the pull phase) is unconstrained during rowing and is known to influence average muscular power output. PURPOSE Our purposes for conducting this study were to fully describe maximal short-term rowing force-velocity and power-velocity relationships. Within the context of those purposes, we also… CONTINUE READING
