Anatomy of a Rower: Do they have the strongest legs of any Olympic athlete?


The Croatian double Olympic Silver medallist Damir Martin exhibits outstanding strength and endurance; but how does that compare to athletes from other sports? In a sports science lab, the physiques and unique body characteristics of Olympic athletes are analyzed to reveal what makes them so special: /> Subscribe to the official Olympic channel here: /> Visit the Olympic Channel, where the Games never end:



Jake Birch
This is a perfect video for all those footballers that call rowing easy
Ryan Sheehan
The grammar in that title is killing me
Dick Piano
Weightlifters have the strongest legs of any Olympic sport.
Thomas Spelmans
Hardest sport i have ever done
Em G
Came here to see what it takes to become a rower. And Olivia Jade is definitely not one 😂😂😂 I actually feel horrible for the actual A1 athlete who lost a spot on a team, to a bimbo and privileged brat.
sophia chong
i have a regatta tomorrow
PrimusOmnium
Do Josh Dunkley Smith 😂
Tristan E
What an incredible beast!
Spiritus Invictus
Does they have...smh
郑安Alex
I think this lab should consider the weight of damir when testing vo2 max, which is usually ml/kg/min
sk vlogs
They are so hard worker
Karman Mangat
idk just ask Olivia jade
Puter
Im from croatiaa😂❤
Dom Forte
I’ve been waiting for so long for this video to come out.

Pete reed with his 11l lung capacity 😅
Odonata
He's such a cutie!!! Love his humble attitude. Not just another athletic hot bod.
LanceCampeau
"you have to bite through it"... I've got a 2K TT on the erg coming up soon. 😁 I will bite.
Chesus Crest
They should try track cyclists if they're talking legs....
hinsiang23
Watching quite drunk after a night out... seeing him do the vo2 max just about made me throw up
Memelord
Rowers represent 💪🏼
Alfredo Alfaro
This guy produces more peak torque than my car!
mitsterful
Josh Dunkley Smith of Australia had a VO2 intake of 7.5litres I think. No wonder he holds the world record for the 2k on a rower.
fuckthegardai yeet
Do a sweep rower
Luke Tweddell
Would love to know his splits on the erg during that v02 test!

The rowing community as a way to brag themselves about being the best like crossfitters do. Asking for admiration this attitude doesn't even have my respect. Many ways to mesure legs power and comparing it with rower. Reactive: ski and snow how much impact they can take on. (Rower no impact at all) Adaptive: Cycling uphill and fast downhill (rower have a steady pace) Endurance: Marathonner (most rowing race are 10x shorter) Rythm : mountainneer adapt to the environnement (rower never hit a wave) Impulsion: jumping, show me a rower than can jump his height Resistance; weightlifter and many many more. Not hating on rowing just giving a lesson of humility (I am a rower and I'm proud of it) And if you still think rower have the strongest legs just watch Brian Shaw beating World Record on a rowing machine for the 100m in first try without any techniques.
Matej Skrobot
Bravo Damir :)
He is just AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! <3
Htoo Htet Aung
They changed the title!yay!
Theodoros Lapikof
Best video on youtube
akis michos
hmmm and i thought that olympic cyclists did.
Bernie Sanders
Ever heard of track cycling?
janlukicman
Croatia is proud of him!!!
karilyin
You're asking if a rower has stronger legs than a weightlifter???!
Gumaonetwothree
Yo this guy causes global warming by all the co2 he produces
Hunter Kowald
Rowing machine: Doesn't look very effective, the boat isnt even moving!
Travis Chase
Get this man to McDanks
branimir maletić
Damir won in Rio
Nicholas Sessions
No, Olympic laser or finn sailors do
Boxcar Ent.
Dont forget the STERIODS.
borri lamfer
weightlifter do it for second rower do it for seven mi nu te s
Johnny Foster
income talk economic artist tree string feed repeat shared.
Ben Dover
just came to the video to say the title should "do they have the strongest legs of any Olympic athlete"
pikanoob
no. cyclists are on par with endurance and probably have more strength. Weightlifters definitely have the maximal strength
Yani Isla
You should test velodrome cyclists
Ruth Mekuria
Strongest lungs or legs? Or both? The title is th(rowing) me for a loop (pun intended)
Daniel Price
Have you seen Olympic sprint cyclists or are the thighs of a rower even bigger than that of a cycle sprint Olympian
Thành Hồ
Superb athletes Wish everyone could tall, strength and powerful like these athletes
Conor Bryce
"does they". Olympics fix your title
Mister Molotov
What a great video, i am impressed of his physics and the effort of producing this video.
Ethan Croft
Does Olympics has good grammar?
Boo Bear
does dong size correlate with athletic performance?
Sam Towell
Giving V02 max in ml/kg/min would allow better comparison to other athletes than l/min
Wesley Alth
1 name Bradley Wiggins
Volvox
I need to clone this Ubermensch for my World-Reich ... Muhahahahahaha >:)
Pan Konjo
Title typo!
Larry Marshall
Do judo player next
Lucent Shadow
It would've been cool if they measured back power and performance too.
Biggie Smalls
Yea Mahi from NZ

God save the ROW!!!

Saludos a los exremeros como yo y mucho ánimo y perseverancia a los que se encuentran en activo y a las futuras generaciones .... Desde España, VIVA EL REMO🎖🏆🏅

I did the math, and it would take 6 of these guys to match the torque from a hellcat charger
free runner
The stromgest legs clearly belong to the cyclist
Bryan Butler
Do Kyle Snyder USA wrestling heavyweight
O ren
why is arya stark cheering him on the rowing machine ?
Geras Katinas

Alastair Hewitt

João Gualberto Teixeira de Mello
Legendary
Julio Blanco
They are only comparing sports with easily measured metrics. Wrestlers exert more energy I would guess, just no way to measure it.
fg
I find this series interesting, but why aren't they showing the exact same data for all athletes? With the weightlifter Dmitry they showed the torque on the dyno for his quads and here they show it for the hamstrings.
Radio Station
Definitely not saying this dude isn’t crazy fit, but I’d like to see some cyclists/runners do this type of thing. (Maybe not their arms, but anaerobic capacity and such)
Proton Movie
Mo Farah next please
JEatoaol
No, Oly weightlifters do...
Taniwha B
If you're going to compare VO2max between athlete classes it would make sense to compare in relative terms.....
Fenris17
Is rowing hard on your knees Do they get itbs?
Fla rai
Woww! Very impressive! But is he born with these capacity? or did he got theme by praticing rowing ?
ArcaneNoodles
I think the title is supposed to be "lungs" not "legs".
Austin Mann
Goddamn machine. Lady at 10:56 is screaming at him and he doesn't mutter a sound
Ten Parsecs
No, Olympic weightlifters do
KnozD
Bite through it and go till the end
Philip Paik
Do they have* not ‘does they have’ 🤦‍♂️
David Ljubenko
I took a picture with Damir Martin he trains in the same club as me

Dan
Racing kayaking?
Ivan Ivan
They lost me at Croatias most popular sports star. Sadly only 10% of People who watch sports in Croatia would even recognize his name. He is Like 3rd best rower in the country. Many more People know Sinkovic brothers.
Napster Channel
Crossfit pls
George Christodoulou
There is no way he has stronger legs than a weightlifter.Weightlifters need put a put a high amound of force for a very short amount of time(strength) when rowers need to be able to put a moderate amount of force for a long amount of time(endurance)
Siroun Johnson
Why don't they ever show women rowing?
TryTyTV
Oh no this title
