How to row a 2000m race?                                   


There are numerous theories behind rowing 2000 metres on the C2 Indoor Rower. Should it be the same as rowing a 2k race on the water? Should you row a constant tempo throughout?  Even pacing with constant watts and rate is the most efficient way to row but typically rowing races are not rowed that way. Psychology of course plays a part in on water racing and rowers tend to condition themselves to race in a certain way and so therefore they like to row the race Indoors just like they do on the water.


One method was developed by the French Federation and is based on using data from a 500m sprint test rowed at max pressure and rating the day before a 2000m Test. Many rowers have found this method to their liking and knowing you can drop your output after the first 500m and still be on target is a nice psychological boost just as your system is starting to come under pressure. This method correlates well for well developed and conditioned athletes.


From that data the first 500m is rowed at 92%
The second 500m is rowed at 88%
The third 500m is rowed at 88%; and
The final 500 m is rowed at 91%.

Query - Is it a reasonably accurate guide?


** Please note there is no right or wrong way in how to row 2ks. This is simply one method that has been used in the past and you need to determine what works best for you.
