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.

    Water Rower and Concept 2

    I own 2 rowers in 2 different locations:1st is a Concept 2 (model C - computer upgraded to PM3, handle and seat from D) which is just over 10 years old at my office/shop.2nd is the Water Rower in Cherry which is just over 6 months old at my vacation house (used every weekend).I write this review just having finished rowing on the Water Rower.I purchased both machine new.In the past, I had a "silicon filled piston super heavy duty rowing machine" which just died of many wear and fatigue problems before I purchased the Concept.Either the Concept or Water Rower will do a really good job of lasting and keeping you in shape without killing your body.I ran for many years but it was doing slow damage to my knees so I moved to rowing.I row 3 days on, 1 off unless I get a major workout some other way.I use these machines to keep in shape. Keep the lungs and heart moving etc.I just get on the machine and row for... 5/5 DM (Portland, OR USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Amazing Piece of Art, er, Exercise Equipment

    Anyone considering this rower should know first and foremost that it is absolutely gorgeous. Beyond that, what really sold me over the Concept 2 is that the layout of the machine is more conducive to rowing while watching tv, for example, nearly silent (great for apartment living), and what you noise you do hear is the gentle whoosh of water swirling.I've never rowed in a scull, but I have to imagine the WaterRower sounds much more realistic than the sawing sound of the Concept 2.Storage is a breeze with the low center of gravity and roller wheels - just lift it up and it takes up about the space of a dining chair.The only potential downside is the computer. The Concept 2 has very accurate drag calculations, etc., that allow you to compare against anybody else's scores in the world. The S4 monitor on the WaterRower, by contrast, is not nearly as sophisticated. It doesn't even tell you total calories burned, which is a bummer.
