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: 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...
