Sequencing of actions affects force production for ergometer rowing

Creator: Kieran Anthony Coghlan, State University of New York at Buffalo. Exercise and Nutrition Sciences | 2007

benefit of “taking the catch” with bent elbows may be to allow the rower to more quickly “load” the oar. Acting as a hydrofoil, ... Sparrow, et al., [11] looked at the economy of rowing for non-experienced rowers using ergometers.

About this book
Six experienced, male college rowers were recruited and performed two different catch techniques on an instrumented rowing ergometer: one with elbows straight throughout the catch and early drive phase, and one in which the elbows flexed throughout the drive. Data collected included force data from a transducer-equipped rowing machine, elbow and knee 3-D joint angles, and EMG for muscle timing. Four dependent measures were calculated from the data: average work per stroke, percent of work done in the first ⅓ of the drive, average peak force per stroke, and average time to ½ peak force per stroke.

Nevertheless, competitive rowing programmes have generally been slow to adopt sliding ergometers in large numbers, possibly suggesting that the perceived benefits are insufficient to warrant the extra financial cost.

    WaterRower

    an exceptional machine

    The waterrower is an excellent machine that is exceptionally designed and provides an outstanding workout. I have owned one for about 10 years, and my wife and I both use it regularly. In the entire time I've owned it, the only parts I've had to replace have been the monitor batteries and the double-sided tape that fastens the monitor wire brackets to the frame. I found the workout it provides to be deceptive at first--until I stood up after using it the first several times, I didn't realize just how intense the workout had been! If you've used other rowing machines, you're in for a treat when you try this one--there is absolutely no shock to the shoulders or arms at the beginning of a stroke (even from rest). The footrest is rock solid and easily adjustable for foot size; the frame is long enough to accommodate very tall rowers (I've had friends up to 6' 4" use it without banging into the stops); the components are rugged and last a long time (at least 10 years so far); and the... 5/5 nucpiper "RNS" (SW Michigan) - See all my reviews This review is from: WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine in Ash Wood with S4 Monitor (Sports) The waterrower is an excellent machine that is exceptionally designed and provides an outstanding workout.

    Ok but with some reservations, limited comparison w Concept 2

    Update - Water rower sent me a new sensor and disk which fixed the computer. It was relatively easy to install. I would like to upgrade my rating to 4. Everyone likes it and uses it. Why not a five? My remaining nits, which really shouldn't discourage people from buying it are:1) The footrests. Yup still catches the shoes, even though I changed to ones with narrower heels. I think they could fix this by angling the edges outwards. A bit more substantive design would also be nice.2) The computer - Its kinda basic. It will count calories per hour as you row, but won't give you a total calorie count. Additionally, I use the rower when watching movies in the dark. It would be great if there were a backlight just to check how you are doing. I use my cellphone light to check.3) I've figured out why the feel of the pull is not perfectly smooth. Basically, there is a wheel where the strap goes around (imagine a ribbon wound around a wheel). The strap slips... 3/5 Seahug - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Best rower on the market

    I researched rowing machines for a while before deciding on this one. I was a competitive rower in college, and used to use the rowing tanks (for technique) and the Concept2 ergometers (for fitness). I always thought that there must be a way to combine the true feel of rowing with a rowing machine. Part of why rowing was so attractive to me was the feeling of pulling the blade through the water, the sound of the water, as well as the tremendous workout you can expect.Fast-forward about 20 years, and I was trying to find a decent rowing machine for my home gym (that is to say, the FIRST piece of equipment for my planned home gym!). I had my mind set on a Concept2, as that is what I used at various gyms throughout the years, as well as when I was rowing competitively. I almost pulled the trigger, however, I decided to check out some comparisons, as well as do my due diligence on an expensive purpose. I found that the WaterRower was highly recommended, even by Olympic-class... 5/5 siddhartha "siddhartha" (Northern Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine in Ash Wood with S4 Monitor (Sports) I researched rowing machines for a while before deciding on this one.
