Re: New to rowing; strength benefits?

Seems I've been thinking the C2 will provide more overall (upper body) strength benefit than will perhaps be the case. On the other hand, it will be more helpful than the Peloton. I'll need to assess whether it makes sense to add a C2 to the mix, swapping maybe three Peloton rides a week, or if I s...

Re: A little training guidance needed

Good Morning - My wife introduced me to rowing at the beginning of the lockdown. We bought the Concept 2 (D) at her request. I am 5ft 9 (177cm) and 160 lbs(73kg) 63 years old. I have always been a long distance runner at 50 or more miles a week and 2 years ago was told to stop or have both hips and...

Re: Polar Vantage V - anyone using this watch?

Anyone using a Polar Vantage V for ergging? I am considering one because you don’t need a hr strap and I bang into my strap occasionally on my rows and it’s a little annoying. Just wondering what your thoughts are and if the wrist HR seems accurate. Thanks. I have had the Polar M430 for about 18 mo...

Re: Skierg technique and muscles used..

Its very much the midback that takes the beating, and afterwards the biceps also felt used. Triceps no problem, lats no problem, legs ofcourse feel worked but nothing more. Lowerback/glutes, which recover the goodmorning part Interesting observation. One would expect the opposite to occur, as the t...

Re: Skierg technique and muscles used..

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=94R5CmIt7QM Here is Jason Marshall doing a sub6 2k. He is by far the best skierger overall. Fast from 500 to the full Marathon, has most overall Wr s. So he must do things pretty ok. Dang he's strong. That's a pretty slow rate for 1:29 pace. As to form he's using a mor...

Re: Skierg technique and muscles used..

That’s the style I try to copy, quite some leg movement involved. https://www.instagram.com/p/CA-NkYCJ9we/?igshid=16mknfqhfoxyw Is that you? My style is quite similar, except my arms are not bent as much but I think they're improving, and I use the same kind of shoes! I feel the primary movers for ...

Re: Skierg and Garmin watch

It's the same PM5 with just different metrics. Maybe the skierg PM5 is defective.

At most it's a very shallow squat, maybe 1/5-1/6. The legs are only stopping the downward momentum and are not u...

Re: Question to owners and common users of the Skierg

I have both the rower and skierg and was using them in about a 2:1 rower/skierg ratio. Been Zwifting mostly these days but, anyway, both will give you a great aerobic workout. I found the rower easier to do longer pieces. Also the skierg really doesn't give much of a lower body workout. It's not a X...

Re: Heart Rate - SkiErg vs Running or Cycling

I bought Ski Erg last month to complement trail run training. Greg in customer service recommended starting a variable interval workout. So I’m doing a 1000M-900-800-.... down to 100M w kettlebell swings in between. Resistance set @ approx 3-1/2. Been starting out w low 100’s HR with the longer int...

Re: question about "peak power" workouts

Because a max pull contest is a complete waste of time and tells you nothing about what you're going to do for 2K. The primary goal with ALL serious rowing is to minimise your 2K time. Nothing more, nothing less. The ergo was designed as a winter training tool for when the river was frozen (or othe...

Re: question about "peak power" workouts

Maybe you're doing something other than trying to find your peak power. I'm just following the instructions to find peak power. "Peak Power is measured with a 10s erg test. On a CII set the drag factor to 200. The high drag factor is necessary to provide adequate resistance so that you can hit a tr...

Re: question about "peak power" workouts

If you don't have the strength to reach peak power with the machine at max drag you'll never know what your peak power is. In you case you don't have the strength to hit your peak power with that high a drag factor. I don't have the strength at that drag factor. I do do a workout that uses max drag ...

Re: question about "peak power" workouts

I'm a new rower, here! I’m following Ed McNeely’s “peak power” workout here which seems simple enough, but I have a total noob question: When you start doing your 10 sprinting strokes, does that include the number of strokes it takes to REACH 90% of your peak power?? Because it takes me upwards of ...
