Re: Form

I’ve wondered if how you take the catch (engage the chain) on the erg matters with ergdata. Like some might catch the tension in the chain quicker than others?

Re: Form

I also agree that getting outside of ones useful body position isn’t worth it. It is highly likely that I am! When I was just erging I didn’t worry too much about length, although recognized its benefits if it was good length - tall guys vs short guys and all that. It was when I started rowing OTW t...

Re: Form

Couple of more thoughts! Length has been a big thing for me at my height and needing to be long to row in better boats: - to henry’s point, pausing at hands away body over and really working on keeping those knees down and getting rocked over as far as can as a stretch is helpful. This can also be b...

Re: Form

I’m only 5-8” and ergdata says my drive length is 1.48 usually. So maybe I’m getting enough angle! If you think about it, the forward part is a hinge from the waist. Stand up with an empty broomstick or something similar and practice hinging from the waist with a flat back. That should help wake up ...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

I have a nice little routine I do in the mornings after my aerobic work. Includes batwings, shoulder dislocates, chest expanders, hanging, overhead squats with a light bar, sitting in a goblet squat for 2’, good mornings, Swings, and that thing where you take a KB around your head. It feels awesome ...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

I am hoping that this thread will lead out of the PP box and into a way for us of the getting older set to do the strength training we need to do, do the aerobic development that will help our rowing and do the intensity work on the erg or wate that we need to race well. For the sake of argument, I’...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

That's the point. It becomes a PB effort 3 days a week because it is progressive - you have to beat your last workout of the same type. It grinds big time once the honeymoon is over. I found it to be detraining on the aerobic side because the 'easy' days were really just hanging in there to get it d...

Re: HELP: Training program from a grappler

The concept associated with building aerobic conditioning to enhance recovery is pretty interesting and key. For instance in master rowing we do 1Ks, which are about 3:30” efforts there about, which isn’t long to suffer. But we also do 3-4 races in a day, which requires recovery

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

Dang Will. Each of the PP periods were in different years. And I’m not a guy that logs things for very long. The last time i did the PP I was trying to keep up with progressing with deadlifts and I was doing some KB work - goblets, Swings and presses. I was laying it all out for the PP workouts and ...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

I've done the PP a few times for 2-3 cycles in prep for a 2K race or test. I wasn't able to weight train or do much else during it - especially the second or third cycle. To me the 3 focus workouts really take it out of you. i would have to modify it to make it work. But I'm an old fart.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

1K is my best distance against the rankings too. I guess there is something nasty in that 4 X for us less aerobic folks. I too made good progress on my 5 x 1500s. Just couldn’t make the 4 x 1 happen. I’d be rolling along the PP. all things pointed to sub 7. Then that session would knock the crap out...
