Re: Question on warm up.

10 mins easy bike, some easy rowing (1K), then some easy weightlifting: rowing motion, one set, 5 reps of 8, lats the same, 20 squat jumps. Then row 500m, some technical exercises: arms only, arms and back, legs only, legs and back, all with significant pressure, then full on (1K pace) for about 8-1...

Re: Recommend me some over/on ear headphones

I am using Musicman BT X33.
No problems although I sweat heavily. Accepts a micro SD card and will act as an MP3 player,
bluetooth also.

Can recommend it without reservation.

Re: Training Volume

You cannot excel at all distances, even if you were a rowing specialist. Your 500m and 1K are excellent
so why not work on these and make them better still.
Crossfit training probably helps you most at these distances also.

Oh well...at least I'm in the 1:28s now but the target of 1:27.x will have to wait until a better day I think as some way off.
You beat me there. I have been under 1:30 only once -- 20 years ago.

Re: CrossFit Open 19.1

Crossfitters seem to like calories since this is the only summary statistic the assault bike yields (you can get current watts but not average watts for a piece). Amazingly some of them do 70 calories in one minute on the assault bike. This must be >= 1500W which I cannot check since I can't get to ...

Re: Did training predict actual race performance?

My recent experience:
30 mins:
race = last training (1Month before, exact to the meter -- a fluke)
but much worse than 6K pace a week before (lost 2.5 secs / 500)
1K:
race faster than all training paces by 1 sec/500.

Form has been a little unstable for 6 weeks before the races.

1K world record

The c2 website with the world records lists the incredible 1K-time of 2:37.1 for the 48 year old Paul Neave.
Is this a mistake? I searched for Paul Neave on this forum and in general but could not find anything.

Re: Ergocup Neckarelz

I have never done anything but a 2K at an ERG comp and I have always wondered what it would be like to do a longer row in a competition. From personal experience I recommend not treating such a race as a time trial and getting in a position where you lead being closely followed. If then you slow up...

Ergocup Neckarelz

This weekend saw the ergocup in Neckarelz (Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany). This is my favorite race since the conditions are simply perfect: large venue, excellent air quality, ergos spaced 6 feet apart facing the race display. Moreover it's close to Frankfurt, so only a 90min drive for me. I was in fo...

Re: Why I am not loosing weight?

I am eating lots of fat in the form of linseed oil (seems to be the healthiest). You need to be patient with the rowing, it's not a matter of weeks, takes years. The most important thing is to endure an be consistent, then soon you will be rowing an hour and longer. The optimum combination for weigh...
