There are numerous factors that make an individual’s rowing experience unique. These factors include a rower’s anthropometry, the weather conditions in which he/she rows, the depth of the water, currents and waves, the type of rowing shell, its rigging, the inboard/outboard and the stiffness of the oars used by the rower. Given so much diversity in conditions it is often confusing for a rower to know if his/her input effort is producing an output speed that is optimal.

In this article, I will talk about how input effort can be visualised in the form of graphical concept called the force curve along with output speed/pace to achieve optimal rowing speed.
