Re: Indoor Rowing Form

I'm no expert, but your stroke looks pretty solid. The one thing that stands out to me is that your shins go past vertical at the catch. This can rob you of some power.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Was a but stiff after the HM on Friday, just did about 3k yesterday and called it a day. Joined a 30 min full house on Rowpro this evening but couldn'f connect to the server, probably overloaded right now, never seen so many sessions. So just did a solo 30r22 sitting on 1.56 to loosen up a bit. 30 ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Hopped on a 30 minute row pro session with all 16 lanes full again! Row pro popularity is way up during these isolating times. Some pretty fast rowers on this session helped push me along so I would not end up dead last again! This followed by a 4k cool down. I joined a HM yesterday which had 10 st...

Re: Fitness first water rower??

Yep... I think I will have to wait a bit.. Keep fit & healthy 👍 No reason to not keep using your water rower until you can get the Concept2 erg you desire. My only experience with a water rower came during two separate week long visits to a resort that had them as their only rowing option. It's a f...

Re: Am I any good?

Welcome.

What is your age? You can always go to the rankings section on the concept2 website if you feel you must compare yourself with others.

Re: Newbie: Eating crisps (chips) and starting to row

Wow! You had an impressive March. If you take Beta blockers for your hypertension, they could certainly limit your MHR.

Congrats on your efforts.

Re: Asensei has added more free content

I've been considering Asensei however I am currently working through the interactive plan in a bid to reduce my 2k score (1st 2k later today :!: ) and am finding this just the right level of challenge and variety for now so will probably carry on with it. What's your view of Asensei? I think you've...

Carl,
I just need the cord, does row pro sell it for iPhone?
That was the only place I was able to find the cable. I bet it will show.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Did the long one this evening had been promising myself to do this month... and a deeply unpleasant experience it was :( Had hoped to average 2:07 but in the end settled for sub-2hr (just!) as the last 10 was a struggle. About the only thing that didn't hurt was my backside!! :lol: 2/3 marathon: Ti...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Was supposed to be a rest day after a long row yesterday, but decided to join a handicapped 5k row on Rowpro today. Great fun! All 16 lanes were full and the staggered start for the handicap made it an interesting race to the finish. A lot more fun for me than a standard timed row. Rowed at a nice 2...

Re: Handicapped Rowpro 5k

Bit of a pain for the faster rowers. Much easier and more popular to have fixed times not fixed distances so you all just finish at the same time. Hard to beat a decent 30 minutes of steady state rowing as a training row. What rowpro needs is simply more people online. As soon as you have 16 lanes ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Completed a 27km row that I had a HD on last week. Did it today as a HM followed by a 6k. Took a bit of a walk and stretch after the HM so the time looks dreadful, but I just needed to get this distance behind me. Congrats, 27k is an amazing distance! :) Thanks. Don't fret your HD today. Use it as ...

Handicapped Rowpro 5k

First I've seen of this type of race. Very interesting for me as a slower rower. At my usual 5k pace of 2:15, I am usually reluctant to join these and have folks wait around for my finish. The handicapped race has everyone delay their start based on their pace with the expectation that we will all f...
