Abstract

In our paper we examine the effect of the added exertion on the changing of technique in the rowing motion under laboratory conditions, usin4 an ergometer. The Hungarian National Junior team of four helped us at the examinations, which consisted of an anthropometrical measurement and five steps of exertion on the rowing ergometer, where the spreading of the motions during the exertion period was determined by a computer (SELSPOT system), meanwhile the level of tiredness by the measurement of pulse and the acidity of blood in the intervals between these periods. The comparison of the levels of tiredness shown by the physiological characteristics and of the changings in the motion of rowing can help us not only in the detection of unique errors, but also of some constant technical ones, which are dealt with thoroughly in my lecture.
