Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Sometimes you just need to share, I guess. Settled into a workout program that seems to feel right: Day 1: sprint session geared toward 1K (like 8 x 250, 90”R, or 4 x 500) in the morning. 75 KB swings, loaded carries (2 x 100 yds) and 10 ab rollouts in the evening. Day 2: easy row of 10-12K in the m...

Re: New rower - What to do?

As mentioned, I think your sequence is fine. Yes sometimes you appear to shoot the slide, but for the most part you are using your legs and maintaining back angle until they are down. This is what is taught on the water to novices. But I also think that you are missing the middle of the stroke which...

Re: New rower - What to do?

The sequence you are using is seems fine but maybe what’s missing is the use of the hip opening to extend application of power. On the erg there is less need for holding back angle and hanging on handle. So you can use hips and back opening more explosively, I tend to think.

Re: Setting up a training program?

Then do mostly steady state / low aerobic rows and one of the more intense interval rows that suits your fancy. You are allowed to do what works for you

Re: Pete’s Plan for 1000m?

Greg and others, there a few good plans on that site. It’s name at first seems to be a barrier (Breaking Muscle) but to your point the plans are made by an Olympian rower and seem to cover the bases well. I find them to be good for me, not too over the top in terms of the volume of intensity. I’m fi...

Re: Pete’s Plan for 1000m?

It would seem to me that if I was doing a modified version of PP for 1K, I would shorten the speed intervals in half. So 250s and 500s instead of 500s and 1Ks. Also in the original post, it talks about using PP to build a base. It’s not really a base building program as I understand it. Rather it’s ...

Re: Age related decline

I know. It’s weird that they wait so long for registration. I liked being at tech. A CrossFit box doesn’t seem the same for some reason but maybe it will draw a new crowd.

Hey Jim - it looks like ATL erg sprints has a 1K event this year. May see you there now that I know that!

Re: Age related decline

Yeah Jim. Somehow I’ve gotten down to 190lbs. Haven’t seen that weight in more than 30 years. As to 2Ks, I’m ashamed to admit I’m not sure I have it in me to give it a proper go again. I’m erging at the moment, though (not seeing the same splits however). Who knows, maybe I’ll cowboy up and see you ...

Re: Age related decline

Jim, I don’t know either. All I notice is that when I row through a rest period and a new interval starts, the first couple of pulls are at faster pace and then they get on track. I definitely am not pointing fingers! It’s just a thought/question because I pondered doing it for 2K once - setting up ...

Re: Age related decline

Jim, old friend, doesn’t setting up the machine for intervals and zero rest allow for a cheat the first couple of pulls? I notice that my first few pulls at the start of each interval are faster than real. Maybe you are doing it differently

Re: OTW Update

Yup. Still rowing 4s and 8s. I have a men’s 4+ that has been lots of fun and is making progress. I want to shift gears a little and do more sculling. May do a mixed double next year. Eventually I will have to brave the single in a race environment. I did a stretch of 200K in 40 days in a single this...
