Anthropometric and fitness variables as a predictor of 2000m rowing ergometer time


This calculator has been made to predict the 2,000m time in fully-able athletes aged 18 or over. It took a sample of 111 rowers from clubs around the UK and Ireland to create a multiple regression equation that predicts performance to a high degree of accuracy.
