You will have seen the recent success of the Estonian 2x at the World Cup Regattas.  Juri Jaanson the Olympic silver medallist at Athens in 1x is in this boat.

Juri is a long time Rowperfect user. and used it to calculate his gold medal time and target splits in his preparation for Athens.  They calculated the joules output required per stroke to achieve the target splits and so if you watch the Athens 1x final, you will see Juri rates about 36 down most of the course and produces near-flat splits throughout.  [Ask us if you want to know how to do this calculation for yourself].

Now he is training with his doubles partner on linked Rowperfects….. and it seems to be having the desired results.

His training has been studied by a goup of sports science researchers and they have published the findings in Sports Medicine Magazine.
