Abstract/OtherAbstract:
ABSTRACT: Knowledge of the relationship between weight-room exercises and various rowing performance measures is limited; this information would prove useful for sport-specific assessment of individual needs and exercise prescription. The purpose of this study was to establish strength, power and muscular-endurance exercises for weight-room training, which are strong determinants of success in specific performance measures used to assess elite rowers. Nineteen heavyweight elite males determined their repetition maximum (RM) loads for exercises utilizing a Concept 2 DYNO [5, 30, 60 and 120RM leg pressing and seated arm pulling, (J)] and free weights [1RM power clean (kg) and 6RM bench pull (kg and W)]. Rowing performance measures included a seven-stage blood-lactate response ergometer test (aerobic condition), time-trials (500-m, 2000-m and 5000-m), a peak stroke-power test, and a 60-minute distance trial. Pearson correlation moments (r ≥ 0.7) and stepwise multiple linear regression calculations (R ≥ 50%) were used to establish strong common variances between weight-room exercises and rowing ergometer performance (P ≤ 0.05). Weight-room exercises were strong predictors of 2000-m, 500-m time (s) and peak stroke-power performance measures only. Bench pull power (W) and 1RM power clean (kg) were the best two-factor predictors of peak stroke-power (R = 73%; standard error of the estimates (SEE) = 59.6 W) and 500-m (R = 70%; SEE = 1.75 s); while 5RM leg pressing (J) and either 6RM bench pull (kg) or 60RM seated arm pulling (J) the best predictors of 2000-m (R = 59%; SEE = 6.3 s and R = 57%; SEE = 6.4 s, respectively). Recommended exercises for weight-room training include a 1RM power clean, 6RM bench pull, 5RM leg press and 60RM seated arm pulling.
