On rowing

There's nothing psychological about rowing.

It's all engineering and physics. From this point of view, the erg is dynamic:
the resistance is no more than the force we apply (Newton - action and reaction are equal and opposite);
and Work (which is what moves the boat) is the product of force and length.
