Re: Rowing at later stages in life

To be 30 again...you are in your prime, my friend. Masters rowing sprint racing is over 1K. To me it is so much more friendly than a 2K and allows training to be more balanced. I feel like the strength training carries over a little more, or maybe the time spent doing weight training doesn’t negativ...

Re: Marc Megna podcast

Just watch Eric Murray’s training videos and you can see that he suffers just like the rest of us do. Yes, he has won a genetic lottery and has maximized its benefits through amazingly hard work, but it doesn’t keep him from hurting at his max efforts. Or if you saw the Boat Race this year and saw t...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Bummer about the Interactive Plan. It was a convenient resource. So I’m gearing up for a 1K test. Did a little pyramid to see how things felt: 100: 1.38.1, r34 200: 1.38.2, r34 400: 1.38.0, r33 600: 1.38.2, r35 250: 1.37.5, r36 8’ Steady State bike in between - not hard or easy just keeping HR stead...

The one 0.1 split difference messes with the perfectionist in me. I watched the monitor break from 46:40.0 to 46:40.1 during the end calcul...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

This morning: 3 x 1500m, r19, 1:59.6 interspersed with bike at UT HR for 5’ then 4 TGU each side to the high hip position with an easy 25#. 45’ total. Very tough pulling sub 2:00 at r18/19 for me for that length and with marginal recovery between. Damn near hurled after the last one. Maybe being fas...

Re: A potentially very dumb question - equivalent in pounds

Martin, can you dumb it down even further? What is the m in 1m per second. Is it essentially less than body weight if one is doing air squats?

A potentially very dumb question - equivalent in pounds

So a friend asked me what rowing 200 watts as one pull would be I terms of lifting weight in pounds. This person is 165#. I’m too dumb to know if this can be calculated or not :lol:

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Seems like the erg challenges the need for intense training and PB all year - maybe because one doesn’t get as beat up and injured. Downtime and periodization still seems necessary as in other sports. Everyone needs time in the year to be aimless and in maintenance mode

Re: Technique/Initiating stroke with back

So I tried something early on: take a piece of string or a small bungy or something and tie on end to the center of the handle and tie the other end to the seat. Have just enough length so that you stay in the catch position comfortably. Then practice pushing away keeping tension on the string. in o...
