Re: Advice on

Bill, the video linked is a classroom lecture by a Georgia Bulldogs OTW coach and his on-erg demonstrator. It has helped me work on the hip hinge flex (rotation) and understand how to avoid tucking the butt up under the shoulders during recovery. Take a look. Also, a strap or bungee secured around t...

Re: Advice on form?

IMHO, that’s a Steady Eddy (T.C.B. for 7:17.8!) first time 2k ratewise, pacewise, and drive sequence timingwise! Legs, back, arms muscle enlistment is practice-perfected and consistent stroke to stroke. I detected a few soft strokes with less back enlistment and just a suggestion of weakness after 4...

1.5” top to bottom spread on pace and relentless negative split for 1500m! If you had a near-death experience, you sure kept it out of the numbers. Very strong!

Re: GARMIN HRM1G Heart rate Chest Strap Failure

Agree, a best buy in chest straps, more comfortable than the snap-ons, more reliable, don’t have to short the batt contacts at replacement, and mine is going strong after four yrs.

He suffers most who suffers best.
Altho not apparent to the rest
who follow in his wake (the exception being those sitting on Lemond after he crapped in his shorts :cry: ).

Happy to see that Lemond attribution straitened out. Scrappy bastard! (Lemond not Gammmmo)

Re: Marc Megna podcast

Sort of flattering to imagine that I could get to sub-8’ if I only worked at it. Somehow the self-asphyxiation experience of 2k test gets in the way. I am such a damn sissy! The weakfish may not suffer most but we sure suffer the longest. :lol. We could test this hypothesis. No matter how fast you m...

Re: Model C stored in damp conservatory - help required on bringing back to life

Conservatory is? Room with a piano and a brass telescope? Potting shed? I’ve always wanted to ask. How long does the flywheel take to coast to a stop after a hearty pull? Is there an audible grinding sound? I doubt the two axle bearings have rusted unless the conservatory is absolutely dripping. 1-w...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://indoorsportservices.co.uk/training/interactive This link used to go to a site that would let you enter your 2k time and other variables and give a structured program. I'm guessing the site doesn't exist any more, but I know it worked a few weeks ago. Anyone else know of other sites that do ...

Re: Does tiny feet affect rowing

^ Excellent! Gotta think inside the xfit box. If jumping on and off for pushups, learning the control of strapless might anchor the trotters and improve transition time. Should the OP some day desire to engage with the erg from a more tradional perspective, she’ll have a leg up already. :D

Re: Does tiny feet affect rowing?

Is your foot size in reasonable proportion to your overall build, length of limb, height? I have an intuition that you don’t shop for clothes in Big & Tall. Diminutive (and lightweight) bodies are very handy at sports that reward exceptional strength to weight ratio (dance, aerial gymnastics, figure...
