Re: Coming off the seat - help

Hey Ray. Old school OTW pad below. Not a cheap piece of stamped foam rubber and priced like it aint! But sticks like glue on those dead wheel starts. Use allowed in C2- sanctioned erg comps, least it was in CRASH-Bs 2017. https://scullandsweep.com/products/seat-pad-sorbothane?variant=33013156879

Re: Interactive Training Plan for 2000m

Odd, redking didn’t work for me yesterday. Can’t recall screen message as I’m not fluent in Al Gorese. My server? Theirs! Chicken crossed the road in Kansas? Good, still couple of options. The “interactivity” @ ISS was overrated. Not much lost there imo.

Re: Interactive Training Plan for 2000m

Then you saw it. Now you don’t? Word to the wise, wink wink, nudge nudge. Internet hosting is ephemeral. I knew of two links to sites archiving The Indoor Training Guide V. 2—the original source of the so-called “ISS Interactives” training—until yesterday when I checked before posting and found only...

Re: Forum Flyers

. . . I had to become a "meter muncher" from an anerobic background too to try to do something with the 2k and above and live with the loss of real top end power. It's the only way to go really if you want to get serious OTE. Shrewd observation! Embarrassed to think I have seen gym rats make this a...

Re: Forum Flyers

I also have 73k OTW in Alden 16 single July-Sept last year. That’s the blue sliver at bottom of column 2020 season. Does not count in the lifetime erg total. More work getting to the pond and back than I want to repeat this coming summer! Lindsay, your 20,000K is not too shabby for 12 yr. total. :wi...

Re: Forum Flyers

Thanks for the tickle, Dave and Graham. Every picture tells a story don’t it. I started on the erg after retirement. I can’t imagine this time investment for anyone working 40-60 hrs per week. I do know of one Flyer member with 30MM+ lifetime meters. I think he took up the erg well before retirement...

Re: Is it possible to drop 1 minute from my 2k in 2 years?

I suggest you pray for a growth spurt rather than place TOO much faith in time on your side. Need to train in either case.

The Interactive erg training associated with the defunct ISS/UK site and the entire Holy Writ of erg training from a few decades back is still available in pdf format @: http://www.rathburn.net/rowing/training You may want to look deeper into this erg classic ( Concept 2 Indoor Training Guide, Versi...

Re: Not getting much force from my legs

14 spm is the last cat out of the bag. Muscle enlistment and sequence aside, the OP will need to do his thing at a higher frequency to optimize pace and delay fatigue. Better get that rate to 17-18 minimum soon, dontmind. The bike gearing analogy may help. You use a tall gear that you can’t effectiv...

Great writeup and pictorial, Dave! On the day, on the line, sweating palms pounding hearts reality of erg racing! And absolutely nothing “virtual” in the prep, logistical difficulties, health challenges, and turned out pockets either. Our little team @ Paris 2020. Gottaluvit! Glad to see the three o...

Re: Explanation of drag factor

In SimCity, fizzix elaborates and also obscures metaphor. In the case of the rowing ergometer, the metaphor or analog is boat. The rowing ergometer is certainly not a boat but it is a vessel of the synthetic imagination.😜↙️
