Rowing Specific Testing

Of the hundreds of fitness tests on Topend Sports, there are a few tests designed specifically to assess the fitness of rowers. As testing on the water is difficult, these tests utilize a rowing ergometer.

These can be used for assessing the fitness of rowers, in combination with other generic fitness tests. See our discussion of fitness testing for rowing.

While field tests are important to identify which areas of fitness may need improvement and to monitor changes in fitness with training, it is also important to make sure the tests are specific to the sport of rowing. The best way to do this is to conduct tests on a rowing ergometer.
