Re: Forum Flyers

I waited until after the current ctc thrash to look up my average from Pete Plan days. Knew I’d be spooked if I saw it. I’m gonna try not to drown in self pity. :wink:

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Beginner gains are fun - but I sort of dread having to start at 1:45.5 when I start my next round in three weeks. All reps at target pace except “Last fastest” was or is Marston’s mantra. The forum Pete Planners of summer 2015 were encouraged by Greg Smith to negative split (pace increase every rep...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Injuries demand attention and International air travel is no picnic! Have to accept training setbacks after immersion in germ soup. You’re progress is right on schedule on the 2k. Don’t neglect low intensity volume sessions 30’ and longer, say 3x15’ or 3x20’ and alternate with incrementing continuou...

Re: new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

I intended the lonely question mark icon as shorthand for my curiosity why no additional reports of tests either supporting or contradicting OP’s initial assertion of gross differences in measurement of his performance by one new and two or three used machines. My best guess is he has discovered the...

Re: Asensei

Name suggests Japanese martial arts. Must one adopt an attitude of unquestioning subordination to acquire the conditioning to pull a chain? And I went to sleep when the intro package didn’t get to a bill of particulars, training theory, schedule, etc. in less than 5’. Sorry.

Re: Asensei

I don’t usually resent successful athletes converting their fleeting celebrity to ready cash but at a glance this hustle looks to be all hat no cattle.

Thanks all. Maybe this is in my head if there is nothing really obvious to check for and I am not really working at the same level. I will try a 500m all out row on both w/heart monitor and see how it compares.

Re: Lightweight versus highweight data transmission

The corrected weight score available in ED is only an option in the context of boat crew selection in OTW (on water) rowing. The penalty for weight in a boat is that the greater the crew weight, the larger the hull displacement and area of hull wetted surface acting to limit boat speed. Corrected wg...

Re: Dirt on rollers

Railroads use lubrication on the rails to reduce wear of train wheels. Track greasers actuated by passage of trains are only employed on trackage sections of extreme curvature and only to the inboard, vertical face of rail which contacts the vertical face of wheel flange. The issue dealt with is he...

Re: Dirt on rollers

It is a similar principle on the C2 rail. How so? I doubt you can make this stick to the wall, rowbike. Side load and frictional wear on the flanges of a C2 seat roller are practically non-existant. “Me, I got a nickel Smashed flatter than a dime By a Mad Dog Runaway Red Silver Streamline——-TRAIN.”...

Re: new-ish rower question about spm

ROM isn’t built in a day! Neither is the hands away, upper body rockover preceding knee break and travel to the catch. I have been practicing this recovery trying to keep my knee angle open and my butt trailing behind rather than vertically aligned with my shoulders as I approach the catch. Isn’t a ...

Re: new-ish rower question about spm

Jen, watch this one from classroom lecture and demo by former Georgia Bulldogs OTW coach. If your time or patience are limited, fast fwd to 10:00 will get you to the common postural and sequencing problem on recovery (finish to catch). All about the practice and timing of hip hinge to a strong catch...
