Re: Skierg pb thread

Great work John! Steve- I have rotator cuff issues. My orthopedic told me "no overhead lifting". Haven't had any serious issues since I stopped doing overhead presses. You're right, Kini, I should not be lifting overhead. Occasionally need to rooftop a heavier canoe or kayak, so gets me once in awh...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Steve, thanks much for your generous compliment. :D What issue are you having with your shoulder, and how's the recovery coming? John, you continue to smash records :o and by almost 5 seconds! Will be surprised if the 2000 doesn't follow. Regarding my rt. shoulder, very old rotator cuff tear that w...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Congrats John! Very well done, John! Curious, what is your 5k PR? Just noticed the link to your training log. You put in a lot of meters on the Skierg! With the new year is a transition to an increased running focus but will still be erging. Einstein said everything is relative and from here, your ...

Re: SkiErg 2 Handles

Purchased a Skierg a couple months ago when I injured my knee as I can use it sitting down (Which works great BTW!). However, for longer sessions, it starts to really suck holding onto the handles, have people figured how to put regular nordic handles on the machine so I'm pulling against straps in...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Steve, you're one of the people on here most inspiring to me, so I hope you're able to keep at it. I've been trying to better my 30 minute distance, and finally got close yesterday but it wasn't quite there. It would be nice to have a training discussion for the skierg, maybe just for lightweights,...

Re: Para-Rowing

Move4ward, Not in the UK but would work. First, Alden has a great seat that can be used either fixed or roller. Fully adjustable back with multiple Velcro straps to stay in place. I use it on a model D, can row on this due to permanent back issue, unable to row otherwise. Love my Alden seat. Second,...

Re: Will Model E legs fit Model D rower

Jackarabit, thanks for your post but that option has been assessed and discounted due to the fact that I have to take down the rower after use. Also, storage of said boxes would be an issue. Getting on is easy, getting off not so. My best compromise so far is to have a stool to the side that can of...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Good one John. We're on the same page, I PBd my 5K this morning. Did a 5K warm up on the rower around 2:07. Skierg 5K PB 22:14.7 43r last 500 at just over 2:09. Great jobs, Kini & John. Hard efforts! Have laid off 'hard' this past week due to shoulder / back issues. Was able to set a new PW (person...

Re: Rowing & Running Fitness

My local 10k race today. It's got national status, so 2,700 starters from all over. This was one of my main targets for the year. How far would 6 months of regular erging (30km per week) get me? A bit of a fight over the twisty 1st kilometer, but OK after that. Made it in equal splits, but drifting...

Re: Skierg pb thread

2nd 10K last night- new PB 45:38.3 r40 Last 2K split at 2:15 r45 Pretty pleased with this one. And you should be pleased! That is a hard effort. Broke 50 minutes one time, still remember it well. That last 2k shows a lot of strength. Have seen much on media about the big island getting hammered wea...
