Recently, we have conducted a study with the following hypothesis: can shorter rowers really benefit from using shorter oars?

Rowing Biomechanics Newsletter 10th Anniversary! There was a discussion among rowing coaches and scientists about lift force at the seat: does it really lift the whole rower-boat system and decreases water displacement; or  is  it  just  transfer  of  weight  from  the  seat  onto  the stretcher?

Often we receive questions from coaches with the following sense: "How should I change rigging to make rowing angles the same in my crew, if the rowers have different height and physique?”

There were discussions on rowing  forums about setting the drag factor (DF) on ergs and about differ- ences and similarities of a new Concept2 Dynamic erg (DIR) with its static and on-slides analogies.

At first glance, Skierg looks like it emphasizes arm work. However, our analysis reveals that less than half of the power is de- livered by arms (on average 44%) and the rest is delivered by...

Did you know that…  …using  EMG  (electro-myography)  is  the  best method to study muscle activity in any human movement? A pilot study was conducted on a mobile rowing ergometer with the purpose to evaluate the sequence of muscles activation during the stroke cycle.

Recently, together with Concept2, we performed a pilot body segments velocities and associated seat and stretcher veloci- ties of two rowers with different styles on the DIR at 37 str/min: study of the new  Dynamic Indoor Rower  (DIR) and compared its biomechanical features with a stationary erg, erg on slides and on-water rowing in a boat.

Why do we need a certain pitch on the blades? Does it make sense to set zero pitch and pull abso- lutely horizontally, but "grub” the arms more? Can we increase the handle (and the gate) height enough to eliminate "grubbing” arms?
