Re: AT Heat Rate Training: Does anyone do it?

Going through my literature I found another study: Stoggl and Sperlich 2015. The training intentsity distribution among well-trained and elite endurance athletes. Frontiers in physiology 6:295. doi 10.3389/fphys.2015.00295. This is a review paper that also includes randomized control studies as well...

AT Heat Rate Training: Does anyone do it?

I've been following the research of Seiler and others and it seems like they are not recommending training in the AT heart rate zone. Their guidelines are 80% long distance aerobic training (UT1 and UT2) and 20% anaerobic training (TR and AN). A large part of the Interactive Plan (no longer availabl...

Re: Insight TS515 vs Race 1 Wavecutter vs Echo Singles?

It sounds to me like you could also include the Maas Aero and Peinert Zephyr in your search. Everyone I know who has either of these boats has enjoyed them. I think the Aero is slightly lighter and definitely longer (21 ft) than the Zephyr (19 ft). The exact weight specs will be on the manufacturer'...

Re: Little River rowing boats feedback

I've rowed what I think was the 18' as a double and if you are thinking of rowing as a double, it has to be either the 15' or 18' model. It was easy to rig as a double once you got used to the method and very easy to trailer behind a car. You will need some sort of dolly to move it around a boatyard...

Re: Help me help an 80 year old man

Go slow, go slow, and then go slow. I think very few of us know what it's like to be 80, but I do know recovery from injury will take a long time. I would start with very slow 2 minute intervals, get up, walk around, no more than 4 to start. Getting the form correct will be very important to prevent...

"And then it struck me. My cox! He was sensitive and supportive all the way through, gently encouraging me. When I had no cox in my previous three races I mentally berated myself, dropping frequent F-bombs, questioning my manhood, calling myself a maggot. That must have been it. I was not to blame f...

Re: NEW VIDEO! - Canadian Indoor Rowing Championship - My 2K did NOT go to as planned

Credit to you for describing an unsuccessful result that others can learn from. I participate in a lot of OTW Open Water Races (I guess we call them coastal rowing now) and there is usually a warning that logistics can delay you. You have to account for the time to register, get your boat off the ca...
