Re: Rowing technique review

Looking for someone to agree with l😂l. Going with A.Mariner—>elbow flex, active shoulder engagement, hip opening all happening too early. Arms should be static tierod to handle until the legs extend. Least that’s the floaty boaty sequential stroke. Maybe the all-in concurrent stroke works well enuf ...

Re: I am apparently am doing something wrong

Personally I think you don’t have to look beyond Mike Caviston’s advice - in short start each 500m piece 5’ after the preceding one, with active recovery. Or in full, ‘ RECOVERY BETWEEN PIECES. This is another topic that in my opinion gets more discussion than it deserves. .......That means do a 50...

Re: Flex foot

Pull up on the tip of the perforated tongue while imparting a strong floorward tug and side to side wiggle to footplate grasped near the heel stop. The whole megilla will slide out once the final set of holes clear the pegs. A flexfoot should flex. This one does. (ipad pro 12.9 wifi and cellular sav...

Re: I am apparently am doing something wrong

All at once, one after the other with anything from a 2 min rest to 3 min in between. I think some people have mentioned 3.30 rest as well. Opinions on the rest period would be good. Do the 8x500m on 3:30 rest as per Pete “Lunchtime’ plan. That’s for high quality execution meaning emphasis on going...

Re: Pace guides for workouts

Also, I have another question: can I use the same pace for say 8x250m/2’r as I can for 4x500m/2’r? As both intervals have the same total rowing distance and same rest, I would think yes. Is that correct? 14’ cumulative rest (2’ per iteration x 7) against 6’ (2’ x 3) on same active meter total? Thin...

Keith wasn’t all that vague. Conservatively, 2kpace+4” or 1:41.5. 100% of 5k power. 89% of 2k power.

Re: Pace guides for workouts

I could swear the zone schema for the Indoor Sports Interactive trainings was five zones: UT2,1,AT, TR, AN AN appeared at the race end of O'Neill's L3-5-26 scheme as anything from 4x1½' to 10x1', 8x45" and so on, one set per week. Watt band 105 to 115% of race level. At school we saw that stuff as ...

Re: Pace guides for workouts

According to a 3-5-26 Interactive 2k plan, 5 to 10 minute pieces are AT, so up to rating 27 and up to 80% of your race Watts. These might be anything from 2x7' to 3x10'. 2 to 4 minute pieces are TR so at around race rating and 80 to 105% of race Watts. In the above plan these range from 2x2' to 2x5...
