Yea, if I rate 28 spm for 10K in my distance trials, as I intend, it will be _very_ hard to hold that rate for 2K. :oops: :oops: In a 2K, it will be much easier to hold 35 spm. :lol: :lol: ranger Happy Groundhog Day!

No problem SS, just give it a try strapless and see how it goes. :wink: Warning: Use caution, especially if you are on a Model E with the longer fall to the floor. Well, well, well! Look who showed up after almost 5 months of absence with only one post in that period. What's up man? Are you back on...

It is probably possible to only use the quads and inner thighs, but I would guess if you do a 25 or 30K row you will be a bit sore on the sides of your abdomen. first, as I said, the only time I have experienced any kind of extra muscle involvement was when my position was off on the seat and secon...

So what is the difference in having the window open or closed as in drag factor? Obviously closed makes it easier to pull, is that cheating when it comes to trying a max effort 2k? Thanks, Dazz The less airflow through the fan the loser the DF, but the PM adjusts for that so no it's not cheating fo...

It is easy to fix, by putting the erg back on the slides. That's like "fixing" the strange noise your car is making by turning up the radio. Denial is not a solution. You've acknowledged that you can tell the difference in feel and smoothness, now take that and apply it productively to improve your...

John, Be careful with accepting the difference as being inherent in the Slides, it is very likely a technical error that is leading to the difference in force profile between the two situations and you should work back and forth to figure out how to correct the error that is being masked by the Slid...

That sounds about right for a minor adjustment. The whole thing is 10 feet long (untensioned), so you are making a small adjustment to the overall length, and if the tension feels consistent from catch to finish, you have done well.

As long as it is fully functional it should serve you very well for your purpose. It's likely that the wheel bearings will need to be repacked after so many years, and hopefully there is not too much rust on the chain or gears. Taking a few strokes will tell you if the bungee has gotten tired or not...

Get your best price, but do it before someone who knows does. B) You can replace the Monitor with something more current and have a machine that will last you a very long time. As long as the handle returns to the cage under the bungee tension (and that could be adjusted easily anyway) the fuzziness...

There is a reason that the World Record holders of Indoor Rowing nearly all come from the population of OTW Rowers, and if you only count the Fastest (not age class related), then they all do; and they all use the same technique. So what is holding back the non OTW rowers from becoming WR holders P...

While certainly not having to fit strictly into a mold of "technique" at all costs, the differences will likely be so slight as to be undetectable by many. The task we have to accomplish on the Erg is not all that different from what would be done with a barbell to the clean position, and there is a...

I may be misunderstanding your post, but if you had been doing water only for quite a time and jumped back onto the Erg expecting to be where you were when you left it, that is a bit of a problem. The Erg and Oar are quite different and you need a little practice to get back in the groove. Get in se...

Yes. "New Workout" > "Single Distance" > 1000m with 100m splits and no pace boat, Not saved as a favorite. It could be a bug in the PM3 that doesn't show up in a PM4, I don't have a PM3 any longer, though am pretty sure that the base software functions are the same code base. Are you updated to the ...

Is is 100% reproducible? i.e. set up a 1000m session with 100m splits and see if it goes to 200m splits when recalling from the log card.

Just tried it and all 10 showed up as expected, for immediate recall and after R&R of the log card.
