Re: 100K Row - How I Survived - video

Pro video editing and the narration is flawless. But the subject matter just goes ON and ON and ON . :wink: No doubt.. I could have easily trimmed this edit down to around 3 minutes... but there were lots of little thoughts I recorded that I didnt want to leave out. Sorry! I was thinking of the nea...

Re: Concept2 Log: Teams vs. Affiliations

Love to have you or you AND your friends join Forum Flyers. We can use the help! However, I get the idea from your initial post that you might be interested in starting a team based on your crossfit gym? Concept 2’s seasonal challenges offer prizes to teams based on the membership or employees of br...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

Re: ErgData - is drive length recorded?

Very many indoor rowers can easily pull 10mps (calculated movement of a simulated uncoxed 4 IIRC but look it up). Very few rowers come close to creating 2m of actual handle travel in the drive portion of stroke so there should be no mistaking meters per stroke for drive length. Neither appears in th...

Re: Should there be more drug testing in masters rowing?

Personal genetic advantages (for example the classic runner somatotype) are rewarded in open competition. I doubt John has ever worn a 200lb weight belt in a distance event which required handicapping to compensate the obvious disadvantage of 350lb ‘fun’ runners. As regards entry category or class d...

Re: New rower need the right erg

Re: Should there be more drug testing in masters rowing?

Roid use and hormonal body engineering leave their mark. That’s ‘a league of their own’ which all of us recognize. PE for the weekend warrior is mostly about endurance rather than power production and the obvious stigmata are largely absent. As the pro cycling doc said, orange juice is performance e...

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

I understand and admire Mark and Lindsay’s confidence and pride in their mastery of unassisted rate control. When fresh as a daisy, 10 strokes per 30” isn’t really so difficult and almost anyone with a natural 3” drive plus recovery time can do 2 strokes per 6”. The difficulty of producing an absolu...
