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.
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?
- Improved determination of mechanical power output in rowing: Experimental results
- Mechanical power output in rowing should not be determined from oar forces and oar motion alone
- Rowers' on-water power output is commonly underestimated
