Re: Setting up a model

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7OP5Pq2tIWk Approx. 1:46 in. The black flap at top of fan unit does hinge upward to give access to engage two semi-circular slots (black plastic) in the rail unit with two shiny (steel) bars in the fan unit. Can be awkward lifting and maneuvering the two sections into a...

Re: inconsistent df

@Citroen -- I can take a look inside, but if gathering dust I would think the trend would just be a gradual increase in DF rather than jumping back and forth. If someone else uses ErgData or sees the DF in their logbook, I wonder if they have similar variability from day to day. What should we proj...

Re: inconsistent drag factor

There is no fixed and unvarying df produced by any particular lever position.
If you want a particular df, check df in the monitor. if It isn’t the df of your ♥️’s desire, jog the shutter lever, check the effect on df, repeat until satisfied. Ain’t rocket surgery fer cats sake!

Re: Whats the right Pace SPM and HR

A chart of rough equivalence between Allan’s bikie-friendly HR zone hierarchy and Carl’s rower-friendly version would be useful. Zone 1 Allan is UT2/3 Carl? Zone 3 Allan is AT for Carl? I believe Greg Smith did some translation in his quantified rowing blog.

Re: inconsistent drag factor

Although the range of df numbers observed with an unchanged lever setting may seem large, your sample is very small and the single observed corellation/proposed cause is varying intensity of (average) effort. There are a number of environmental influences on df readings. Dust occluding air exhaust f...

Charlie Chan say simple transposition make tripping up steps appear same as falling down.

Re: Can you make gains on the erg and with weights?

If you do something right for the wrong reason, will you be aware of accruing the benefits you didn’t desire?

Re: Forum Flyers

funny thing Jack is that I has a similar thought as well jack. Even if you look at yours and mine and Adam's at the top - yours was 4:30/1:52/250 mine was a minute faster 3:30/1:26/540 and Adams 3:00/1:13/880 - so I added 300w to get a minute and then Adam another 300 to get 30". Just noticed that ...

Re: Forum Flyers

I understand the watts-hungry “cube rule” which describes the relation between pace and the power necessary to produce that pace but there’s nothing like an accidental observation to drive the point home. The three hwts currently occupying FF boat 2 are all inside a 3” difference on pace/500m but th...

Re: Introduce yourself

PBP a good choice, Marta. There are some guys on the Pete Plan thread (“Training” subforum) doing Pete Begin(here). Great to ratchet up volume! The thread is a bit chick-deficient but Mike Pfirrman (threadowner) has been thru all the Marston training plans and will see you right with good advice and...

Re: Introduce yourself

Knocking out 110 watts a few weeks after leg surgery AND you know how to find the df in the monitor? Maybe you should be giving the advice! The catch is going to be easier on healing tissue at low drag but, if you want it higher, you’ll have to make your wishes known to gym management and ask to hav...
