Re: Rowing strapless...

A disambiguator’s work is never done! B) I’ve been doing a bit of OTW boat prying in the Alden past several weekends. Fresh water so haven’t caught many crabs but have crabbed quite a large number of catches, always the stbd crowbar.

Re: Rowing strapless...

When is 10mps not 10mps? When 10mps equates to 0:50 pace, 2880watts. :lol: Many words begin with the same letter of the alphabet. Context can help but with exceptions. I marvel at HRR or RHR. A rate, a resting, and a reserve in a single context, even within a single abbreviation. When is 10 mps 10 m...

Re: Low resting heart rate

The average indoor rower is not at all interested in boat speed and merely accepts, if she is even aware of the mathematical ramifications of the simulator conceit, that if we cloned her times 3 and placed all four of her in an extremely sharp, multi-oared racing shell, “they” would propel the boat ...

Re: Low resting heart rate

The C2 ergometer (sic) shows rating and Watts. Rating suffices, but seeing power in place of puddles can offer more accurate control. I accept your usual argument (only hinted at above) that power zone training is superior to HR zone training for reliably accurate determination of effort intensity....

Re: Low resting heart rate

@ Ollie Russell: 220-age works out to be accurate in your experience but paying attention to any heart rate data with the exception of resting is a waste of time? Respect for one’s own opinions and experience provides an anchor in a sea of challenging and conflicting info. Questions remain about you...

Re: rowing video - critique/advices

Martin, here’s an American college rowing coach’s lecture and demi on positioning for a strong leg drive. Take a look.

Re: Low resting heart rate

Not great because not useful because does not accurately predict max heart rate for large segments of the genpop. There are better “one size fits all” formulae but best is max observed during stepped intensity test to failure or during final 20’ of 60’ time trial-level effort. Subtract observed rest...

Re: rowing video - critique/advices

Hi Martin. Nothing to add except to double up on James’ comment on high feet. Try 2 holes showing on heel clips to establish if you can reach or exceed your present catch position (measured as proximity handle to chain gate) while opening the angle between thighs and shins and stopping shins at or s...

Re: Cranking noise on chain of Concept2D

Break the fan section from the seat beam and tip up so resting on wheels and beam cap adjacent fan housing to get convenient access to the acrylic dust shield. Pull the shield from its slot on beam flanges. Might need a flashlight if not familiar with the rower guts. Quick inspection should reveal i...

Re: Cranking noise on chain of Concept2D

I have personal experience with a model D at a YMCA gym which sounded like the erg in the video. Pulled the acrylic slide from the bottom of the hollow beam containing the chain and shock cord/chain return mech and found the chain riding on the idler shaft alongside one of the chain idler pulleys. L...
