Real-Time Feedback on Mechanical Power Output: Facilitating Crew Rowers’ Compliance With Prescribed Training Intensity

Lotte L. Lintmeijer, A.J. “Knoek” van Soest, Freek S. Robbers, Mathijs J. Hofmijster, and Peter J. Beek

prescribed levels of training intensity. From a biophysical perspective, average mechanical power output (hereafter called “power output”) over one or more stroke cycles constitutes a suitable measure to control rowers’ compliance with training intensity as it is (1) strongly related to a rower’s rate of

An Analysis of Variability in Power Output During Indoor and Outdoor Cycling Time Trials

Owen Jeffries, Mark Waldron, Stephen D. Patterson, and Brook Galna

Pacing refers to an athlete’s distribution of work or energy across an event. 1 , 2 Athletes vary their physical output (ie, mechanical power output) to accommodate physiological or psychological constraints, for strategic racing purposes, or due to changing environmental factors. 2 , 3

One-Repetition-Maximum Measures or Maximum Bar-Power Output: Which Is More Related to Sport Performance?

Irineu Loturco, Timothy Suchomel, Chris Bishop, Ronaldo Kobal, Lucas A. Pereira, and Michael McGuigan

considers at the same time the force and velocity applied to the barbell, thus optimizing the power production in this external implement. This load is usually determined in a progressive load test, performed until a decrease in subject’s power output is observed. 16 , 17 Nonetheless, it appears that these

Sprinting for the Win: Distribution of Power Output in Women’s Professional Cycling

from male cyclists to their female counterparts. For instance, lower whole-body muscle mass 16 has been observed in female compared with male athletes, which can influence peak power output, 17 whereas a slower rate of force production during a maximal sprint, irrespective of muscle mass, has been

Trade-Off Between Maximal Power Output and Fatigue Resistance of the Knee Extensors for Older Men

Ryota Akagi, Yuta Nomura, Chiho Kawashima, Mari Ito, Kosuke Oba, Yuma Tsuchiya, Geoffrey A. Power, and Kosuke Hirata

concerning as age-related reductions in muscle power output have a greater implication than weakness (i.e., strength) on performance of daily tasks and functional independence ( Evans, 2000 ). In other words, both maximal muscle power output and neuromuscular fatigue resistance assessed with muscle power as

Helsinki. Study Design The study lasted from mid-November 2021 until mid-March 2022. Participants performed 3 simulated outdoor TTs, with a duration of 1, 5, and 20 minutes, respectively, during a training camp held in the Southern part of Spain in mid-January. On the other hand, field-based power output

Power Output and Technique of Wheelchair Athletes

Karin Roeleveld, Eric Lute, Dirkjan Veeger, Luc van der Woude, and Tom Gwinn

To assess power output, force application, and kinematics of wheelchair propulsion in peak exercise, nine wheelchair athletes with medical lesion levels of T8 or lower performed a 30-s sprint test on a stationary wheelchair ergometer. Mean power output, calculated for the right wheel only, was 59.4 ± 8.5 W. The ratio between effective force and total propulsive force was 60 ± 6%. A negative torque around the hand and a not tangentially directed total force accounted for this low effectiveness. Since the subject group was highly trained, their technique was considered to be optimal for the given circumstances. Therefore, athletes who want to improve power output by increasing effectiveness should keep in mind the existence of a nontangential propulsive force and a braking torque applied by the hands onto the hand rim surface. It is likely that both aspects will be influenced by the geometry of the wheelchair, for example, hand rim dimension or seat position.
