This study showed some difference in trunk and knee extensors strength between rowers and control subjects as well as between rowers and non-rowing athletes. The increased performances of extensor muscles in elite rowers appear to be probably related to the specificity of this sport. In the drive phase of rowing, rowers sequentially push with the legs and then pull with the arms and lower back, requiring both muscular strength and endurance. However, no difference was shown between groups regarding dynamic and static trunk extensor endurance. Further study is required to clarify if trunk and knee muscle strength and/or endurance are related to rowing performance. [less ▲]
