Dr. Anthony Rice

We are very excited to announce that we have just signed an agreement with Dr. Tony Rice to join the Rowe.rs team.

Dr. Rice has been working with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) for over 15 years and has been part of three Olympic Rowing Teams. He is the Lead Physiologist for Rowing at the AIS, and has published several papers in high impact scientific journals.

One of Tony’s most groundbreaking topics is the measurement of training load in rowing. His two papers provide a framework to measure the actual load of endurance training for rowing (see links below). Tony has also done extensive work developing, validating the overall demands of rowing with the major focus being on in-boat GPS monitoring.

Tony will be writing interesting and relevant content on our site for the next 12 months or so. The initial articles will be landing on our site in October. We will be publishing a mixture of White Papers, blogs and Podcasts.

We want to create a place where rowers can find some interesting and thought provoking content. We will not be offering all the answers but we do want to stimulate peoples thinking around all aspects of training, recovery, coach and athletes behaviour.


Two Articles about training Load in Rowing

Convergent validity of a noval method for quantifying rowing training loads

Development and implementation of a novel measure for quantifying training loads in rowing the T2minute method


Our ambition since we started Rowe.rs was to provide a product that improves the performance of athletes, simplifies coaches lives and keeps the enjoyment in the sport.

Rowers Conference 2018 – ROWING and TECH

“One of the best, if not the best rowing conference I’ve attended in over 30 years”
Ian Cruickshank

We would also like to let people know that we are running our second Rowers Conference January 2018. We ran one last year, we got great attendance and some very nice comments. So we are doing it again.

Keep an eye on the Conference Website over the coming week, we will be announcing our group of speakers.
