Re: 2K Time Plus What, for UT1

For me it was more like 2K+20. Maybe 15 on a good day

Dude - just row! Let it be what it is. Put your curious mind into what your body is doing, how you are breathing, if your shoulders are nice and relaxed, if you are hinging at your hips....

Re: Training Complexity and Beginner Pete Plan

As hard as it will be to do, I would suggest not getting hung up on all of this just yet. I might not even mess with erg data. You are just getting started and finding your groove. The items you mentioned really don’t matter much at this stage. You will learn how to rate lower by learning rowing for...

And Lydiard.
As I wrote, these principles have been known in running for almost 100 years.

Do you really think that Lydiard got those principles out to the general public?

How many in this thread except you and me have ever heard about Lydiard's training principles?

Re: Maffetone Heart Rate Training

Every time I have read Maffetone, it describes including interval training once base has been established. Tom me the only thing that makes it different is the arbitrary method of establishing hr cap

Look up Easy Strength by Dan John or Even Easier Strength. Great way to lift, make progress and not kill yourself

Re: Newbie here, need feedback on form.

One reason you are initiating with your back is because you aren’t hinging over at the turn around. Get hands away then hinge from your hips over your legs and then chase your hands into the catch position. As you drive away, keep your hinged back angle through the initial part of the drive. Also yo...

Re: Importance of stretching?

What I find works for me is to hang from a bar for 30”, do some overhead squats with a light bar (16#), maybe some kettlebell swings with a light bell, and I love to sit at the bottom of a goblet squat to open my hips

I will usually do this prior to a row or a weight training session

Re: Sprinting Advice

I’m not a beast by any stretch. But I find that doing some deadlifts (say 1 set of 2 or 3) helps me with low pulls, 100s and etc. sort of opens up the legs and makes the erg feel lighter. FWIW and YMMV

Re: Form Feedback

Could be the camera angle...but I’d like to see more layback, more rocking motion, and keeping hands (the chain) more level. Your hands come out of bow and then dive down. You also pull upwards at the release (I thought I saw that). Keeping that chain on a straight path is something that is affected...

Re: Back on the water

First row since March 15. Glassy lake. I feel so much better mentally after. There’s something about it that causes mood lifting feelings when finished. More-so for than other activities. Or maybe it’s just different somehow

Re: Improving But Needing a Form Check!

When you get a good hinge and keep it there on the recovery, it makes it harder to over compress and sets you up into a much more powerful drive position. Use your height to your advantage! You don’t need to get longer. Just more into better position to drive and open the hips with power

Re: Improving But Needing a Form Check!

More hinge at the hip to get your body over so that your legs are in a more powerful drive position and then to use for power when you open them between legs and back. Squeeze out that last bit with your legs
