What should the force curve on the Skierg look like?

I haven't come across information on what the force curve should be.
I'm still improving my technique on every pull, and I can see it in the force curve.
When I do the correct sequence and pull smoothly trough the stroke I get the best time and the smoothest curve.

This is what my steady state pace typically looks like:
(this was taken after a hard session so it's a bit jagged)

It looks similar for hard intervals, only with a higher peak and a bit shorter.

Would be nice to read something like this, but for SkiErg.

Does anybody know if there's some (free available) information out there?

Do you know any Scandinavian language?
I bet they could tell us something interesting about using this machine.

After a lot of trawling (in English) I gave up searching for this type of information.

You could try a brute force search with something like this: https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aresearchgate.net+skierg&rlz=1C1MSIM_enME713ME713&oq=site%3Aresearchgate.net+skierg&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i58.4711j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8


Looking at that picture in my earlier post, that force curve looks wimpy.
I've improved the shape and smoothness a lot over the past 1Mm. If only I could do the same with force production.

Unfortunately no. :(

Definitely. Saw some good YT vids, but when you don't understand what they talk about, it's hard/impossible to draw a good conclusion for yourself
