Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://i.postimg.cc/K1bdm8Dy/IMG-20210118-121313-894.jpg Failed hour of power PB. I knew from fairly early on it was going to be a struggle, and it just kept slipping away from me. In reality I could have dug deeper and endured, and still got a PB, but I wanted to get at least 16550m, which seems ...

Re: Beginner Pete Plan?

I'm new to erging. Brand new, as in 4 sessions only s far. I keep seeing references to a Beginner Pete Plan. But I cannot find it. Can someone please post a link so I can see if it is something I want to do? I agree with Ombrax. Depending on your background, age, weight etc this may be too much too...

Re: Rowing technique video

That doesn't look too bad to me. A good thing to remember to sequence the motion, is to switch from push to pull when your hands have gone past your knees. Keep your shoulders loose and that might be a problem as you're trying to gain length by over compressing your legs rather than slightly leaning...

10 miles at r22 in an hour is a tough session. Well done Tony

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

60’ row session on the plan so thought I’d pick off some ‘low hanging fruit’ and crack the 16k in an hour - and what’s an extra 93m to make it 10 miles? Made it harder for myself at the end by a little complacency and doing the 4th 12 mins at 20 SPM with 1:52.5 average. Meant my last 12 mins was ma...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

5k TT today. Getting closer to feeling like I'm emptying the tank, but not quite there yet. Don't feel worthy of posting this in the PB thread as previous attempt was not max effort. Summary of last 5k effort two weeks ago: Stroke rate was a consistent 23 the whole time Time Meters Pace Watts Cal/H...

Re: 2nd week of beginner Pete Plan - form feedback request

Speed is relative, but effort is far more important imo. Someone can be comparably slow, but if they are trying hard they will always get support and encouragement from me. Rowing is a very esoteric hobby / sport, and most people use the rower as a warm up. If you've found your way to this forum, an...

Re: Targeting strokes per minutes

I'm a big advocate of mastering a big range of stroke rates. I naturally rate at r28-30, but I'm now very comfortable going down to r18. There are different benefits from mastering a broad range, and your breathing sequence will have to adjust as you go up or down, so don't be surprised if it's a st...

Three espressos didn't touch the sides, but my HRV was 10/10 so it was a great test to see which was correct. Turns out HRV was correct, as this felt very man...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Superb mate. Sub 18 is a massive milestone. Taking off 24 secs is also a massive effort and that last 1k is pure rage. Very happy for you. Cheers mate.... earlier in the week I wasn't confident of even PBing but a JD pep talk said otherwise and Bob's your uncle 👍. I actually nearly stopped twice in...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

170m onto my 30r20 pb this evneing, at 1bpm lower than the last pb too. Pretty tough and not much of a sprint at the end. I do feel myself getting fitter every week though, so the next stop is a 8500m 30r20 :D https://i.ibb.co/5KYY84v/IMG-20210115-201816.jpg The confluence of improving fitness, and...

Re: Becoming a better cyclist from erging/rowing?

I'm not sure, but I'd assume that you will gain more from erging and then cycling, than the other way around. The inclusion of the upper body along with pushing with your legs, will give your CV system a better workout, whilst maintaining the leg strength too. Admittedly I'm not a cyclist so I don't...
