The ultimate reason is khổng lồ tốc độ up their boat. When measurement gear is used correctly it gives the rower a competitive sầu advantage. This blog is about our recent experiment lớn use Quiske Rowing App lớn add tốc độ by working on the correct timing of applying power during the stroke.

You want khổng lồ put the blade in the water at the catch, relax và hang off it with as little tension as possible. Then you want khổng lồ swing through the middle. You want to produce your power through the middle of the stroke, not at the catch. - Robbie Manson

The below pholớn is a slide from the British Rowing Technique slide dechồng that we found via Rowperfect. It also shows the Hanging concept quite well: hang from the handle before swinging through (with a bang): Hang & Bang, don"t just Bang.


Anyway, last week Kristina tried Hanging before Banging (red graph), and it seems to lớn work: the valley between the two acceleration peaks is less pronounced and there is a higher second peak, & most importantly, the boat is faster! The below shows her normal bang type of rowing in xanh and her hang and bang trials in red (both at 20SPM):

Pentti is able to increase the speed of the boat by hanging before banging & is also able lớn increase his stroke angle (there was a pod measuring the oar) by many degrees:


It seems the boat is faster if explosive sầu power is applied through the middle of the stroke. By relaxing & hanging off the oar handle at catch you can focus on applying max power when it best propels the boat forwards. Does this make sense to lớn you? We"d love sầu to hear your of your experiments và all comments are welcome.

The boat acceleration is a kind of signature of each rower: it is chất lượng và is determined not only by rowing technique but also by the physical dimensions and the strength of the rower. It takes a lot of work và repetition before a rower can change the shape of their typical boat acceleration graph, this is something we"ve sầu noticed through our years of measuring our own rowing... we just keep at it, stroke after stroke :-)
