We wrote a guest blog at rowe.rs on the flaw in current power output calculations. It illustrates why most used methods do not result in correct power output values and the problem of the this flaw.
Today our second article on improved calculations of mechanical power output in on-water rowing has been published as well. In this paper we quantified the difference between power output that is calculated using the common method and the actual true power output. For this study we used Xsens sensors. Additionally, we provide a method that […]
We proudly announce that our article on power output calculations in rowing has been published. In this article we show that common calculations of mechanical power output are incorrect. Additionally, we provide a theoretically correct method to calculate power output in on water rowing. The following article on experimental data will be published soon. The […]
IRIS, Insights & Research in Sports: De tool om topsportdata op één plek op te slaan en terug te koppelen. Met trots presenteert een consortium van wetenschap, bedrijfsleven en topsport de nieuwe topsportdata tool IRIS (Insights & Research in Sports). Een tool ontwikkeld om alle topsportdata binnen de Nederlandse Roei- en Zwembond (KNRB en KNZB) […]
Most research on real-time feedback focus on the development of visual feedback. However, as rowing is a very rhythmic sport in which athletes have to synchronize with each other in order to perform, auditory feedback may improve performance as well. In previous research (e.g. Sigrist et al., 2013) it is even suggested that well developed auditory feedback may […]
In rowing it is often assumed that synchrony between rowers in crewed boats will improve performance. In practice this means that coaches often tell the rowers to move the boat together and that the strokes will feel ‘heavy’ if the rowers do not move in synchrony. But what does this synchrony mean in biomechanical terms? […]
