Article
Women’s participation in field collision sports is growing worldwide. Scoping reviews provide an overview of scientific literature in a developing area to support practitioners, policy, and research priorities. Our aim is to explore published research and synthesise information on the physical and technical demands and preparation strategies of fem...

Talent identification (TID) is a method used to identify young individuals from the general population that possess extraordinary performance potential for success in senior elite sport. Identified individuals are placed on a developmental pathway aimed at systematically maximising their potential. TID has been utilised extensively in some of rowin...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Introduction: High intensity interval training (HIIT) is a key component of endurance athletes’ training. HIIT sessions consist of repeated intervals interspersed with recovery periods and are generally performed at >85% of power at maximal rate of oxygen consumption (VO2max). VO2max power approximately equates to 2000m ergometer power. The aim of...
Article
Purpose To synthesise evidence on low back pain (LBP) in adult rowers and to create a consensus statement to inform clinical practice. Methods There were four synthesis steps that informed the consensus statement. In step one, seven expert clinicians and researchers established the scope of the consensus statement and conducted a survey of experie...
Article
Background Low back pain (LBP) is common in rowers. Understanding rowing biomechanics may help facilitate prevention and improve rehabilitation. Objectives To define the kinematics and muscle activity of rowers and to compare with rowers with current or LBP history. Design Systematic review. Data sources EMBASE, MEDLINE, Cumulative Index to Nurs...

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is the use of repeated high-intensity (≥90% of maximal oxygen uptake [VO 2 max]) bouts of exercise, separated by recovery periods. 1 In field sports, HIIT is commonly categorised (Table 1) into long interval training (IT), short IT, repeated-sprint IT (RSIT), sprint IT (SIT)-and game-based conditioning (GBC)....

The last decade has seen a dramatic rise in sports science research due to the ever-increasing professionalization of sport. As a result, many alternative training methodologies that challenge traditional training philosophies have emerged. In the sport of swimming, ultra-short race-pace training (USRPT) was recently proposed. The aim of this artic...

The purpose of this study was to measure the within-and between-session reliability of the seven-stroke maximal effort (7SM) test on a rowing ergometer (Concept2® system, model C, Vermont, USA) using an unrestricted stroke rate. Ten national level senior male rowers (age: 26 ± 4 years; height: 186 ± 5.2 cm; body mass: 84.3 ± 6.8 kg; rowing experien...

Purpose: To assess the effects of a 7 week low-volume, high-intensity training (HIT) intervention on performance parameters in national level youth swimmers. Methods: Sixteen swimmers (age 15.8 ± 1.0 years, age at peak height velocity 12.9 ± 0.6 years, 100-m freestyle 61.4 ± 4.1 s) were randomly assigned to a HIT group or low-intensity, high-vol...

Background: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of increased training volume during a 10 day training camp on competitive performance and internal training load (ITL). In addition, coach and swimmer rating of perceived exertion (RPE) for each session was compared. Methods: Ten national level swimmers (Gender: 4 males and 6 f...

Youth swimmers, aged 7 – 13 years, are an athletic population that can benefit from a strength and conditioning (S&C) program which caters for their developmental and sports specific needs. This column provides considerations for S&C programs for youth swimmers. Practical examples of exercises, movement screens and programs are provided.
Article
Full-text available
The debate over low-volume, high-intensity training versus high-volume, low-intensity training, commonly known as Quality versus Quantity, respectively, is a frequent topic of discussion among swimming coaches and academics. The aim of this study was to explore expert coaches' perceptions of quality and quantity coaching philosophies in competitive...
Article
Full-text available
The purpose of this systematic review was to examine the extent and quality of the current research literature in order to determine the effects of low volume, high intensity training (HIT) on physiological performance and swimming performance in competitive swimmers.The methodology followed the PRISMA-P protocol. A search of relevant databases and...
