  • The Influence Of Inspiratory And Expiratory Muscle Training Upon Rowing Performance

    “This study investigated the effect of 4 week of inspiratory (IMT) or expiratory muscle training (EMT), as well as the effect of a subsequent 6 week period of combined IMT/EMT on rowing performance in club-level oarsmen.” Conclusion: “There were no significant...

  • The Inspiratory Muscle Training In Elite Rowers

    “The aim of the investigation was to assess the effects of the resistive inspiratory muscle training (IMT) in elite male rowers.” Conclusion: “The data obtained corroborate the observations that in well-trained athletes the introduction of the principle...

  • Breathing During Rowing: Don’t Just Do It, Do It Well

    After talking a little about the physiology of the respiratory system, Professor Alison McConnell emphasises why a good breathing techniques is at the centre of good rowing technique and explains why respiratory limitations to exercise have achieved newfound credibility...

  • POWERbreathe Guide for Indoor Rowers

    Written for Concept2 Limited by Eddie Fletcher of Fletcher Sport Science in collaboration with Professor McConnell, this guide provides all you need about: The importance of the breathing muscles to rowing How to train the inspiratory muscles Using POWERbreathe...

  • Acute Cardiorespiratory Responses To Inspiratory Pressure Threshold Loading

    “The purpose of this study was to test the acute responses to differing pressure threshold inspiratory loading intensities in well-trained rowers.“ Conclusion: “Although all loads elicited a sustained increase in forced capacity, only the 60% load elicited...
