In Episode #119 of the LEO Training Podcast, I interview researcher and data scientist Dr. Lotte Lintmeijer.

This entire podcast interview is focused power measurement in a rowing shell and the historical measurement for power and Lotte's research regarding the development of a new, more accurate method.

Interview Topics:

Part 1 : Background and Interest in Rowing

  • How did you come to research rowing?
  • Defense of PhD
  • Pop Up Symposium this fall on “Power in Rowing”

Part 2 : Power in Rowing

  • Why power is a key factor in rowing performance?
  • Traditional/Standard way of calculating power
    • On the water there is no constant velocity and boat is not standing still, the rowing shell accelerates and decelerates so equation on water is not accurate.
  • New method
  • Differences between the two and what the standard method misses.
  • How and Why rowers should calculate power?
  • What is the added value of power output feedback compared to feedback on boat speed?
  • Are there alternatives to determine power output in practice?
  • Study you did with rowers
  • Rather obvious that rowers better comply with power output targets when they receive feedback: why is this study important?
  • How to train and improve it?
  • What is the next step in your research on power output in rowing?
