You might have noticed that there is a bit of a discussion going on between Dr Valery Kleshnev, owner of Biorow and author of the rowing biomechanical newsletters, and us. In his October newsletter, Dr Kleshnev criticizes our recent work on power determination in rowing (recently published in the Journal of Sport Sciences; see below) to […]
In our recently published articles [1 and 2] we have shown that the commonly used method to calculate power output is flawed (see also this blog). To determine accurate ‘true’ power output values we came up with an alternative method. This new valid method differs from the commonly used method with an amount that is equal to […]
In his most recent Rowing Biomechanics Newsletter (October, 2018), Dr. Kleshnev comments on two studies that were recently published in the Journal of Sports Sciences (see Hofmijster et al. ,2018; Lintmeijer et al., 2018). In these studies, we explain why the common method to determine rowing power is incorrect, we determined how large the error is and […]
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.
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 […]
Last week, we tested our latest update of our rowing feedback system. Instead of using bluetooth, we now send data from Peach oarlocks via WIFI to samsung smartphones. The big advantage is that the system is much more stable and that we can receive data from the boat when cycling next to it (50-75 meters away […]
