Re: 60 years old - Rowing due to running injury

I heard rowing burns as much or more than running (I run at a pretty strenuous level), is that true? No, much less actually. Strenuous training is fine, but doing it all the time would set back your progress. To lose weight, improve your diet, use portion control, and cover many more meters in trai...

Re: Skierg pb thread

A few recent PBs. Nothing earth shattering but it seems just getting some decent meters in makes a difference. On the 2 distance pieces I didn't even set out for a PB, just kind of happened. I have a few seconds left for when I make a concerted effort- one day. :D 30' 6757m 5K 21:51.5 10x 30 on 30 o...

Re: What Skierg training are you doing?

Kini, nice 6k PB. What is the temperature when you exercise ? Steve, you inspire me greatly doing a half marathon, especially when healing from shoulder issues. I'm going easy for a few days for recovery, and am planning to go for a 30 minute distance in a few more days. Depending on time of day, m...

Re: What Skierg training are you doing?

Good job on finishing the half. Don't know if I could mentally stay with it for that long on the skierg. Yesterday morning. 5K erg 2:04.1 1K skierg warmup 10x500 @2:02.5 with 5 front squats with 40lb dbs in between. Avg time between 500s was around 1:40. Quite amazed at how much difference those few...

Re: Newbie seeking advice

You gave your height, but what about weight and age. Both are important factors. I'm 5'6". IMO your rating is correct for most of your pieces. I typically row at 23-25spm for all steady state distances from 2K to 15K. I rate up only when doing sprints. As for the drag factor I find anything under lo...

Re: How well does a SkiErg complement the rower and elliptical?

I'm considering adding the BikeErg to the rotation as well. Any experiences to share? Any regrets? The BikeErg board doesn't seem to get much traffic. I love the SKiErg, what a fantastic machine. https://www.c2forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&p=468044#p468044 IMO unless you have back issues that preven...

Re: Serious student rower looking to become better

Given your height and age a good bit below 7 min seems not asking to much. This is what I thought, and, that given the age and build of the OP, it just goes to show how blase experienced ergers get as to just how hard getting under 7mins for 2K is. I'm not saying that mark isn't respected but how i...

Model C PM5 retrofit kit

Just go and installed my retrofit PM5 and damn! the monitor is a foot above my head or it feels like it compared to the PM2+ which came down much lower. My neck was getting sore looking up at it over the course of a 10K. Why is it so high? Probably not the best thing to do but I reversed everything ...

Re: Training strategies for rowing as a 2nd sport

IMO if you want to strengthen the upper body and still put in quite a bit of miles on the bike you would be better off with a Skierg. It's about the complete opposite of the rower in terms of percentage of lower to upper body work. When I was biking a fair amount I found that my legs were always a l...
