Re: Anterior deltoid pain,or closeby

I'm just guessing but could it be a trapped nerve that needs some movement or too much posterior deltoid development so there's an imbalance?

I do quite easily get pinched nerves occasionally I my delta.

I can't think why rowing would hurt them otherwise

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

Thank you Stu & Hjs Probably the most important thing to remember is that I do all of this purely for exercise and its much easier on my knees than running, throughout my life did quite a bit of cycling, but again just for the exercise, not to set any records etc, but its interesting to see what we...

Re: Prizes and manipulation

I'm in the "couldn't care less camp" on this. If folk want to cheat a system that is practically an open goal for a piece of paper or a T-shirt, then so be it. I'm not going to waste my energy on them. +1 I never even bothered to register to receive my first C2 million meter reward ffs :lol: Same h...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

To struggle from time to time is really aggravating but unfortunately quite common. I wish you all the best to break this vicious circle soon and get your motivation back! Your CTC looks great by the way, your splits are almost 4 sec faster than mine (and I felt really good) :) Thanks Martin. My me...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

CTC done this morning, which is an interval session of 666m/333m/666m/333m/666m/333m/666m/333m and 10mins 30 secs rest to be used as you like. I decided on 1'30 for each interval. I'm struggling physically and mentally with rowing at the moment so this was a real challenge. Averaged at 1:37.7 with m...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Looks like I've got 15 years to train and reach the PBs you've got there =P. It's gonna take that long Yes mate. I was very slack with checking PBs years ago as I just rowed without any real thought until about 10 years ago and even then it was just a 10k almost every session. All but one of my PBs...

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

That's a solid 10k, well done. I agree with Henry on the 2k Cheers Stu, realised my current 2k time is from June 18, based on my 1k from earlier in the month the magic sub 7 should be there, maybe tomorrow?........ I really think that your only limitation is believing in yourself. Your sciatica is ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Last nights workout, long story short: Training session turned into PB session because I screwed up Syncing ergdata/HRM to my PM5 before the workout, so all of my plans went out the window, and I changed plans at the 2000m mark. Started at 2:15 @ 15 SPM, dropped to 2:05 @17 SPM, realized that was w...

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

I said i was going to leave the PB's until the new season, but I needed to pick my daughter up from school at 4.30, and had about 40 mins to get the 10k session in for the mud challenge, so straight on the erg, no warm up, no re row so no pace boat as that all saves time in getting started, only di...

Re: Prizes and manipulation

Life is too short to let these types of issues bug you. Most of these challenges do not have a significant prize. If someone wants to cheat so they can print a certificate they have big issues. The bling awarded for March Madness are random prize drawings. The 1 million meter, 5 million meter, etc....

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

Hot on the heels of last week's red letter day when I broke my 1min PB by more than I thought, I cockily thought I'd now blitz my 500m PB. As such I started pacing myself after 300m as was averaging in the mid 1:28s with the intention of sprinting at the end. In actual fact I just tied up and broke...

Re: How do i train hard enough to achieve 30 million metres a year

ive just read the 32 Million meters and that's over 87,000 a day, every day with out a break, and this season isn't over yet. I would like their job where I could stay on the machine all day. OK you made me go look and a 61 year old is supposedly on pace for nearly 37 Million this year - over 100K ...

Re: How do i train hard enough to achieve 30 million metres a year

What sort of training would I need to do to achieve over 30 million rowing meters a year Ah - you don't! I cant believe this is a serious question as the math would tell you to reach 30 million in one year you would need to row over 80K meters a day if you rowed every single day....not happening. I...

Re: Pain / Cramping feeling around kidneys after 30min of rowing

Try reverse plank stretches and thoracic stretches. Sitting at a desk for hours causes mid back issues. In my experience drag made no difference at all for muscle tightness and this is when I was doing my ultra distances so I was rowing for hours and the only thing that helped was two hard sports ma...
