If you speak German you might want to check out this link about a German project to match the power curve on the erg to Music. They suggest that better rowers can produce better sounds.
This from the leader of the study, Dr. Alfred Effenberg:
“We would like to find out, whether complex movements can be learned better with visual or with audiovisual information "
If anyone can provide a decent translation, or even a summary that we could post it would be much appreciated. E-mail me if you can help: email@example.com.
Thanks to the Rowing Service for this article.
