Re: Rowing Shorts

One million meters in a week! Man, some of you guys are really nuts! I'm not criticizing. I'm just envious. I've only done over 100k/week in 2008 while training for a C2 marathon. That was hard enough. But to return to the subject of what to wear under rowing shorts (I have both spandex and cotton f...

Re: newbie with acronym problems

I happened across this thread because I was looking for a definition of these terms. Well I have RowPro and I found the answer on page 27 of The Illustrated Guide to Training with RowPro Home Edition, which is online so I don't think the author will mind my showing the definition to those terms here...

Hi Joe, I was browsing through old topics and found yours. I have the same problem at present, although, I'm guessing my tendinitis is much milder than yours. I'm training to do a marathon and the only time that the shoulder caused much of a problem was when I was doing strength workouts which requi...

I find that, as long as I wipe it down after every session, water works fine. Sweat and elbow grease are all you need! Well. Perhaps I exagerate. Water works fine as long as there are no black spots on the rail. "Sweat and elbow grease" will remove those, but a bit of detergent uses no sweat and on...

The rowpro license does not need to be renewed every year. I am not sure what made you think that, did you have an educational or institutional license? I did have to buy an upgrade to v2 when that came out (can't remember how much, maybe $30-40?), but that is and was well worth it. Hmm... Well tha...

I find that, as long as I wipe it down after every session, water works fine. Sometimes I also use a small amount of 7th Generation shower cleaner. I finally realized that the real culprit with rail and roller contamination arises from tiny foreign objects falling on the rail and then getting repeat...

Just bear in mind that RowPro is $99/year. I found it very useful when starting to row in 2006 but when I found out I had to renew every year for an additional $99, I decided one year was enough. There is a decent animation of a rower that matches your cadence and I found it very useful in getting t...

Sorry. I meant 11/06 not 11/08.

I have been rowing off and on for 5 years or more and I've owned a C2 since 11/08 and I've always experienced the gluteal pain. If I haven't rowed for a while, the pain begins after a few minutes and I've had all I could take in way less than 10 minutes. As I rowed regularly, I was able to go for lo...

67y 188cm 85kg; 3km/h in, 10km/h on. Last 2k 7.33 @ 22. Started 1951 or '3, I forget. What does "..3km/h in, 10km/h on. Last 2k 7.33@22." mean? James, I don't quite understand. The Danish record is 6:02.2 at 8 meters per stoke. You suggest rowing at 10+ meters per stroke. 6:02.2 x 8 / 10 = 4:49.8 b...

I'm new to this forum. In fact, this is the first thread that I've read and I did so with great interest. With a 2000 meter best of 2:04/500m, I'm below the league of many people, although as a lightweight (148lb) and 63 years old, I guess that brings my abilities a bit more in line. Can someone ple...
