Seat racing is quite a popular method of crews selection for big boats. How objective is the seat racing? This question is very important, because it may define an athlete’s carrier. Here we will give some recommendations and outline common mistakes.

The simplest way to improve technique is giving feedback to a rower during normal rowing or after it. However, technical exercises or "drills” appeared to be the most effective tool for technical coaching. When doing drills, the biomechanics of normal rowing is modified in such a way, which allows to focus on a specific part of the stroke cycle, emphasise it, make it easier or more difficult to do...

With the new data obtained with a new BioRowTel instrumented seat we found out interesting information on rower's weight transfer onto the stretcher and the seat during the stroke, legs movements for higher rowing efficiency and other.

Rowers of four major universities were tested during Valery’s visit to US during the first decade of April 2012: Cornell, Yale, Harvard and University of Pennsylvania. 22 eights, five singles and 150 rowers altogether were tested within eight days. All testing went well and coaches and rowers received useful feedback. Here are some photos of this project.

An important part of the Biomechanics assessment procedure is the testing protocol, which must provide standard conditions and make results comparable between rowers and over the course of time. There are two major factors affecting rowing technique: the stroke frequency and fatigue...

We have already discussed some relationships between the gate height and the seat force (RBN 2002/05), blade pitch (2010/09), vertical angles (2009/10) and its specifics in sculling (2011/07). Now it is analyzed directly and in more details.
The Newsletter was replaced (on 14th February) with the corrected version, thanks to very valuable comments made by Prof. Volker Nolte from London, Ontario.

Usually 200-250 stroke cycles are performed to cover the standard racing distance of 2000m. Visually, all strokes look the same and only good experts could see some small differences. Biomechanical equipment allows very accurate measurements of rowing motions and software allows determining of how consistent or variable motions of each rower in a crew are.
