Workout of the Day Questions

Hello Ergers:

With respect to the C2 workout of the day service (short, medium & long,) is there any guidance on how to incorporate these into an overall training plan? (Which to use? Over how many days per week? etc.)

TIA

Re: After-market handle alternative

Thank you John! Certainly easy enough to DIY. It sounds like they were a "one hit wonder" in 2007 and then you moved back to the standard handle, yes? If my read is correct, given that they were quite nice, why did they have such a brief run?

Re: Thinking of adding the kettlebell swing to my KB routine

Remember that kettlebells are a sport to some people, whereas kettlebells are simply a means to an end for rowers interested in developing stronger posterior chains and better lumbopelvic coordination. When we use training methods from other sports, we should be careful to draw a line between techn...

Re: Thinking of adding the kettlebell swing to my KB routine

IMO (and I don't consider myself, whatsoever, an "expert" and certainly not a "coach", but as a fitness enthusiast who did take a one day Pavel seminar in around year 2000 (just before his popularity caught fire,) and then, over the next few years, a one-day "Coach Certification" with (Girevoy Sport...

Re: Please advise regarding best media viewing setup

Thank you Allen, yeah, it's an old, but still works perfectly, color analog -"Non-smart" :-) TV. I wonder if there are HDMI adaptors...? I'm not adverse to upgrading this TV, I've gotten many years of good use out of it. I use a chromebook so the chromecast solution is attractive. I tried that once ...

Please advise regarding best media viewing setup

Hello Fellow Ergers: I enjoy watching programs while erging. I have an old television that works fine, with a cable feed, (I DVR shows) and a DVD box (I take movies and TV show series out of the library). I want to add watching NetFlix and Amazon Prime Video. I suspect I will "grow into" Hulu, Apple...

Re: Activity Tracker Question

Hey Cayenne! Which Vivofit do you have? If it's somewhere between the original and the Vivofit 3, you can connect it to an ANT+ heart rate monitor. (Garmin removed this feature from the VF4) Doing that, you can pick up on "Intensity Minutes" which I would suggest are what you're looking for versus ...

Re: Activity Tracker Question

Thank you Ombrax. Funny, after I posted this, I went to swim some laps at an indoor pool and thought, of course, I'd like that to be part of my tally. Anyway, I do appreciate your feedback, just wish there was a device that simplified this with erging, swimming, etc. With steps, I don't need to thin...

Activity Tracker Question

Hello Fellow Ergers & Happy 2019 to You :-) I like the idea of making sure I have a certain minimum amount of movement every day. I like the "10,000 steps" idea. I have a Garmin Vivofit and I'm pleased in how it tracks that. Due mainly to (work, family) time obligations, on a day I row it is often c...

Re: shox-box

My shox box has only had spring failures on the front box - usually the left side. I have replaced 5-6 over the past 7 years. I row 1500-1800 km annually on my erg. I found a local spring company that custom made a duplicate spring to the exact specifications. These replacements last as long if not...

Re: I like this rowing thing.

Thank you for your reply Allan.

As it turns out, I am searching for the right watch / fitness tracker.

Which Garmin model are you describing?

Re: I like this rowing thing.

I don't have much knowledge about the Pete Plan, but as I have understood from forum posts, it is based on rather high intensities. That is probably not what you want for weight loss, for two reasons: When you do intensive training, you burn a lot of glycogen (sugar) instead of burning fat. If you ...
