Re: Skierg pb thread

30 minute PB last night. It's been a while since I did a straight 30 minute "ski" so I had an improvement of just over 300m.

7033m
2:07.9 pace.

Re: Model C PM5 Retrofit Parabola? (Aka Force Curve)

PM2+ had a continuous DF display by a simultaneous 2 button press. Can't remember which 2 since I upgraded to the PM5. I actually miss the ability to see the DF in real time. I row outdoors and temp and breeze changes the DF. Ergdata on your phone can show DF. Can a phone connect to 2 BT devices at...

Re: Model C PM5 Retrofit Parabola? (Aka Force Curve)

I am under impression that the “force curve” functionality and the “drag factor” functionality are resident in the rower (vice the computer). This isn't quite right. The PM uses data from sensors on the rower to calculate the force curve and show you the DF. For example, I used to have a PM 2+ on m...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Inspired by all the good work being put in I decided to put in an effort this morning. New 6K PB.

25:48.8 2:09.0 pace 42spm
1K splits
2:13.1 39
2:11.0 41
2:10.2 42
2:09.2 43
2:07.2 44
2:03.7 47

Last 2K is faster than my 2K PB by 3 seconds/500. 2 for the price of one. :D

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.
