The aim of this study was to examine the effects of anaerobic threshold training on cardiovascular and rowing performance in para-rower.
Two athletes, arm and shoulder (AS) class, and Thai national para-rowing team participated in the study. All participants performed pre- and post-training tests on heart rate, blood pressure, and one
thousand meter rowing performance on water. The anaerobic threshold training regimen performed an eight-week on rowing ergometer combined with normal rowing training program on the water.
Following training, changes in heart rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and mean arterial pressure (MAP) had occurred for this study. But not significantly lower
levels of times in rowing performance on water post-training tests.
The data of this study show that anaerobic threshold training did improve the cardiovascular fitness. However, it cannot improve rowing performance on water of para-rower.
