The methodology of training in sports performance practice no longer corresponds to the required training and competition performance of the athlete. There appears, therefore, the need to use concepts and new information obtained from the Methodists and specialists in sports training, to produce an efficient methodology, as an addition on the way to performance. Romanian rower athletes have recently achieved less efficient results, which show that the training methodology no longer corresponds to the sporting world and to modern requirements. We thought that introducing the methodology of preparing complementary ergometer exercise will provide an opportunity to help improve and promote a higher performance in rowing. To contribute to improved methodology of training in rowing we studied 8 rowers of 18-20 age groups at Snagov Sports Club. We applied a workout program for 6 weeks preparatory phase, in which we introduced 500 m speed tests and 2000 m tests, where we use the ergometer Concept II type PM5, which aims to provide the necessary information, instantly motion control and continue reorganization. In conclusion, the data in this study show that the introduction of specific training methodology in cross-training can help improve and promote a higher performance in rowing.
