“In rowing as in life, there are competitors and there are racers. The competitor works hard and rows to his limit. The racer does not think of limits, only the race.”

Watch a video for this workout“Peak Power Test”

For the Peak Power Test set the monitor for 20 seconds of work and 2 minutes of rest. Start by paddling a couple of strokes to get the fan moving and then go for max watts. It may help to video the test or have a partner watch to tell you the highest watts you pulled in just one stroke. During the 2 minutes of rest paddle lightly or roll out. Take 3 or 4 tries to find your max wattage starting with the damper set low and increasing the drag each successive try. At some point you’ll find a drag that you like and gives you the most power.
Your score for the Peak Power Test is the Max Watts pulled in just one stroke.
