ROWING ERGOMETER PERFORMANCES ARE RELATED TO AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC FACTORS
Riechman, S. E., Zoeller, R. F., Balasekaran, G., Goss, F. L., & Robertson, R. J. (1998). Prediction of 2000 m rowing performance in females using indices of anaerobic and aerobic power. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 30(5), Supplement abstract 1560.
Aerobic and anaerobic physiological predictors of 2,000 m ergometer rowing performance were determined in female rowers (N = 12). Blood lactic acid, glucose, and VO2 were measured during an incremental test on a Concept II rowing ergometer.
Results showed that a 2,000-m ergometer performance was governed by both anaerobic and aerobic factors. Each had similar correlations with performance.
Implication. Ergometer rowing performance is related to both aerobic and anaerobic factors.
