PURPOSE: Measure cardiovascular fitness and total-body stamina.
EQUIPMENT: Concept 2 rowing ergometer.
GOAL: Finish 1 000m of rowing as quickly as possible.
TECHNIQUE: This test consists of 1000m all–out rowing on a Concept II rowing ergometer. Its validity and reliability has been agreed upon and documented throughout all F.I.S.A affiliated rowing federations. The procedure is as follows: start the test at the 1 000m mark (displayed on the computer screen in front of the rower), counting down to zero metres. The rower must set the drag factor to 130 and this will determine the resistance level. The athlete’s recorded score is the total time it takes to complete the 1000m.
Training Tip: For a fast start on the rower, aim to do 10 quick strokes to get the momentum going, then you can slow down into longer, more efficient strokes.
