Do a warm up before your main session. Only start when you are fully ready.
The general thumb rule is long warmup for low volume, high intensity (sprints) and shorter for high volume @ low intensity. Not uncommon to to do 20’ and 4-5000m to get a hot engine for 2k test.

Re: Indoor Rowing Form

Thanks for your affirmation on my form. I think I'm making some improvements and am upping my output - I don't know how I ever managed to do those one-hour sessions! It's amazing how just a few more strokes/minute can knock the wind out of you. Today I did 32r26, 2:14/500m, 145 average watts, 95 dr...

Re: Forum Flyers

11” off your previous best no wonder you felt it! Choosing the hot side of the possible and sustaining it is never fun. And “something of a sprint” says emptied the tank. Chapeau :!:

Re: Forum Flyers

Chris, on a hunch I checked to see if we have all our “Martins.” I think our recent addition, Martin Stoeger, who just happens to have a real hot hand at CTC in recent months should be making the P-list. Also has fantastic 100meter power. Think his handle on this forum is Martin SH4321. There may b...

CTC All time wonderment update (to March 2020) Statto here Sorry for the delay but non un-noticed should it go, well come to the 100 club, Frank, THe Boss (David Moores), Todd (and what a grand return) and Lindsay. It take commitment and a measure of insanity to complete 100 CTC's. Obvs, i'm not a ...

Thot you must have done a macroth special, Dave. Hamburgered your bum, did you? Been there done that but on a road bike 25 yrs. ago on six day bike tour out of Cortland NY. I’m doing the April Fool daily distance ladder now so as to store enuf glycogen to limp thru the Walpole Tricentennial CTC. Exc...

Re: Dynamic Rower Choices

The Oartec DX is very techy. Needed to sell some units so they could provide support in the way of spares and maintenance. I doubt the American rep established much of a beach head against Concept 2. I saw a demo machine at a regatta summer iof 2018. Manageable footprint cf. to its predecessor. Odd ...

Re: Fitness first water rower??

If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with. A positive attitude and HR as a proxy for exercise intensity will see you thru.

Welcome aboard, Jon. Wipe down that handle before and after your session. We may not survive to one hundred and five but we can soldier on. 👍

Re: Am I any good?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_jJhHuYQvI German club rower starts at the beginning with getting off the float. Can you find the “amas” that keep the boat upright as he boards and pushes off? Most non-rowers don’t anticipate the problem so they don’t see the ancient “Polynesian” solution. Also on...

Re: Am I any good?

If you intend to row on a long term and maybe watery basis (where you'd be very welcome), best take a step back and learn how it's done. There's lots of videos showing scullers at Olympic level who can be seen in training too, at low ratings, 18-22, such as this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Re: Am I any good?

No worries, you have a “productive” stroke. 6’4 translates pretty well to speed on the erg. How would your current form translate to a boat? if you think you’re “erratic,” probably not well; sweep is about synchronization of effort, in sculls grunt is worthless without efficient mechanics. When and ...
