Rowing is a physiologically demanding sport, due to the recruitment of a large muscle mass and work rates near rowers’ maximal physical capacity. 1 , 2 Rowers possess large body dimensions and produce among the largest values of any athlete in the specific parameters of physical fitness, involving

Rowing – A Sport With a Higher Risk for Eating Disturbances Despite the fact that lightweight rowing represents a weight-sensitive discipline, little is known about the occurrence of eating disturbances in competitive rowers ( Sykora, Grilo, Wilfley, & Brownell, 1993 ). In rowing, individuals are

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the adequacy of dietary intake in 16 female heavyweight rowers during the sprint racing phase of the season. Caloric intake for the rowers was 2,633 kcal/day, lower than expected given the training regimen of these athletes. On average, rowers consumed below-optimal levels of carbohydrate. Protein intake was satisfactory but fat intake was higher than recommended. For the majority of rowers, micronutrient intake met the RDA. However, calcium, zinc, B6, and B12 fell short of meeting two-thirds of the RDA for a significant percentage of rowers. The preevent meal consumed both 15 hr and 2 hr before the event provided less carbohydrate and fluid but more fat than desirable. Female heavyweight rowers would benefit from nutritional counseling that provides strategies for increasing complex carbohydrates, calcium, zinc, B6, and Bl2 while reducing dietary fat. Adequate fluid intake is also essential.

postexercise recovery time course in highly trained endurance athletes, the aim of this study was to determine the time course of recovery to a preexercise rested state following training sessions typically performed by highly trained rowers. Such information will allow for the appropriate timing of subsequent

? Methodology Given the infancy of TSSR and limited understanding of the study’s central concepts, it was appropriate to adopt an exploratory research design. This exploratory study draws on qualitative data collected from interviews with both male and female rowing athletes. Elite rowers were chosen to

The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between elite rowers and their coaches. We were particularly interested in how the rowers constructed and negotiated the interactions and pedagogical actions of the coaches. Drawing upon participant observation and the principal researcher’s reflexive journal, data were collected over a five-month period while ten rowers participated in a preparatory training camp for subsequent selection to compete at upcoming major events. The data were analyzed inductively (Rubin & Rubin, 1995). The findings demonstrate the importance of social expectations within the coaching context. Such expectations have to be at least partially met if the coaching “contract” is to be honored (Jones, 2009). Not doing so, puts at risk the respect of athletes, without which coaches simply cannot operate (Potrac, Jones & Armour, 2002).
