Re: Arm weights?

If you want to increase your arm workout then do weight training separate from the skierg.

Re: How good is 7:30 for 2000m?

Hi! I recently discovered the benefits of indoor rowing and I love it. I realize I don't have optimal weight and/or height for rowing since I'm 135 lbs and 5'7" tall. But I'm not going to give up just like that. My sport is running so I need to be lightweight in order to perform well. Today I did a...

Re: Recommend me some over/on ear headphones

I've killed every in ear BT headphone I've tried. Pretty much gave up on in ear. I've been using these- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019U00D7K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I got them for about $35. The noise cancellation works well, comfortable enough for 1.5 hour session, s...

Re: Training Plans?

I use both. I do about 2/3 rower 1/3 skierg meters per week. Tomorrow I'll actually be doing 5 2Ks starting with the skierg and alternating with the rower since I did 45 minutes on the rower today.

I like to do alternating intervals of various distances it provides a great total body workout.

Re: Newbie starting out

Use the force curve display on the PM5 to hone the drive portion of the stroke. It's a great "tuning" device for your stroke.

Re: Is Apple watch worth it for rowing?

I use a Polar M430. The overall HR is very accurate, it just lags a little if you're doing short HI training. I have occasional issues when using the skierg as the motion sometimes disrupts the connection to the wrist. Overall it works great and is much more convenient than a chest strap. The Polar ...

I live in the UK. Would I be able to keep the Erg outdoors and unprotected without causing it damage?
Doubt it. I don't think it would take to kindly to being rained or snowed on.

Re: SkiErg for garage

Hi all, I’m after a bit of advice please. I’m looking to buy a SkiErg and put it in my garage but the height of the erg is only a fraction lower than the height of the garage. Has anyone got one who has dealt with similar space available? I’m confident it will fit but there’s not a lot of room to s...

Re: Newbie- tension lag

@Anth_F Here's a link to a quick side view I just did when I got home from work. If you skip ahead to around 1:03 I do just a leg drive, absolutely no chain tension. https://youtu.be/b_jndBEa4L8 @hjs I am pretty slow- average about 2:30/500M stroke rate is about 23/SPM Thank all for your help and f...

Re: Newbie- tension lag

Might be sliding your butt rather than driving your whole body back with the legs. If you are butt sliding you'll experience no resistance until you start your upper body "swing".

Re: Slipped disc and incorrect posture while rowing?

Is it related? I started rowing 8 months ago (30 k weekly). On the begging my partner was checking my technique and it it was all brilliant. Eventually, after a month, I started to row when no one was there. Around a month ago, my husband seen me rowing and said I have learnt the wrong technique, I...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Nice going John.

Had a 2K PB Monday morning. 2K erg warmup.

8:11.0
2:02.7 pace
last split was just over 2:00 so with a little better pacing I would've gone sub 8:10. Next time.

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...
