Re: How many meters do you have this season and how are you doing on this season's goals?

I'm at 998,860 for the season. Planning an early morning (0400 :shock: ) 6K tomorrow so I'll climb over the 2 comma club. This is my first season tracking my meters.

Also, this is combined meters with the rower and skierg. I try to do at least 50K per week.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Nice one John. I hope to be able to do that when I get to that age.

New 2K PB tonight.

8:32.3 r48

I think I could've gone a little harder on the middle two 500s and broke 8:30. Oh well, next time.

Re: Skierg pb thread

2nd 10K last night- new PB 45:38.3 r40 Last 2K split at 2:15 r45 Pretty pleased with this one. And you should be pleased! That is a hard effort. Broke 50 minutes one time, still remember it well.

Re: body gives up but brain wants to keep going

You should probably invest in a HR monitor. It could be your body shutting down because your aerobically gassed. Happens sometimes. It's happened to me on workouts at a pace that I've done before. Just that on any particular day, for whatever reason you're just not capable of the same aerobic capaci...

Re: New SkiErg Owner

After using it again today I can't see how you can even come close to hitting the support. I'd have to finish my stroke down around my toes in order to even have the potential of hitting the bar. How close do you stand to the tower? My feet are about shoulder width maybe a little narrower. But the w...

Re: New SkiErg Owner

Thanks much for your post, which has been quite helpful to me. I've been using the floor stand since getting a Skierg a few weeks ago. However it is having some issues as follows: 1) The surface is very rough on my feet, and was making them look like a war zone. I remedied that by placing a painted...

Re: Skierg pb thread

10K PB last night. Of course it was my first 10K so obviously my PB. :D 46:04.4, 38spm Went out pretty conservatively the first 1K then settled in and then in the last 2K lowered the pace by a second or two. Time seemed to go by faster than the 10K I did on the rower in the morning. Maybe it was the...

Re: Settings on SkiErg - What SPM do you try to maintain?

I "ski" with the damper set to 4 usually. DF at that setting is in the mid 60s for my machine. My rate varies from around 35-36 to around 45 for most distances. Shorter distances of course rate higher. For a 2K I believe I end up around 40. Even on a 30 minute session I'm in the upper 30s for most o...

Re: Stair-master as cross training

As the title suggests, I've heard several rowers (significantly better than me) suggest that a stair master is a good form of cross training for rowing. They explained that it provides low impact cardio, which can be done at either high or low intensity, as well as strengthening the leg muscles som...

Re: Lightweight/Heavyweight rankings needed

My rankings for my age and weight on the erg has most of my times around the 75th percentile with the shorter distances closer to 50th percentile.

On the skierg in down under 20th percentile for everything. The skierg favors heavy and tall much more so than does the erg.

Re: Ski Erg for Max Cardio-How To Maximize?

I've tried using a step and it is an improvement - no longer 'hitting' the end of travel of the cords. Don't think the C2 extensions are an option for me as I use gym machines. Why are you using a step? Unless you're finishing around your ankles you should not be hitting the stops (end of cord leng...
