Re: Music on iPhone while erging

Bluetooth ear bug with iPhone on the floor nearby. Works great.

INFP.

Interesting. I took this test (or one similar) 20 years ago and came out with the same result.

Good for you for jumping back in. I'm 58, once upon a time reasonably fit, but time and tide have taken their toll. Never rowed in college, so I have no clue what is a respectable time, but I know that since beginning on the erg in December I have made tangible improvements in over all fitness and e...

I am trying to get my 16 & 18 years olds going on this. Taunting them with "are you gonna let an old lady do more pushups than you". They are still thinking about it :lol: I love it. So now I've even gotten some of the guys at work to sign up on the same principle. Are you going to let the old lady...

I showed these links to the ladies I work with. I think a half dozen are going to sign up with on a 6 week challenge.

A very handsome young man. I'm sure he's thinking what a cool granny and great role model he has.

I'm still a novice at the rowing, but also struggling with weight loss. A couple of things I've found to be useful: Check out the C2 website for their ongoing virtual challenges. I find having a goal, even a virtual one helpful. There's a new one coming up for June. Your dietary goals sound solid, b...

I'm loving the idea of a Didgerdoo! Maybe that and lessons will be my husband's next birthday present :lol:

But, seriously, if you have sleep apnea, get thee into treatment. Untreated, it can cause serious health problems.

Wouldn't that just put you into the 10,000m group, if you were trying for the 5,000m/day?

I've owned my own for 2 months now. Maybe the newness just hasn't warn off yet, but I find much more convenient to row at home any time I want rather than conform to gym hours. As a result, I've done exercise in the last 2 months than I did in the previous 12 months.

Re: CORE perform user

I had the same problem with the idea behind the CORE perform as I do for the ROW balance, namely: if the "reward" from using the device is considered to be involvement from ab muscles in keeping your balance, then the payoff comes only if your sense of balance is bad. If you have a normal sense of ...

Just on the off chance that this isn't a rowing form issue, but actually a medical issue, I'll ask if you ever have this elbow pain when you do other vigorous physical activity. If so, then get in to see your physician as soon as possible.

So now, a few months later, are the people who bought the seat still happy with it and using it routinely?
