Re: :30/:30 intervals beneficial?

For a contrary, evidence-based view, noting the efficacy of short sprintervals in running and citing a study of them in rowing, see https://www.researchgate.net/publication/12103562_Interval_training_for_performance_A_scientific_and_empirical_practice_Special_recommendations_for_middle-_and_long-dis...

Re: Seat grinds to halt?

Simple check - have someone else of similar proportions sit on the erg and slide back and forth. If the seat seizes up, it's a mechanical issue. If it doesn't, it's you.

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Haven't posted in a month. which more or less reflects my semi-lockdown feelings about training hard.... I continue to slog away in a desultory manner on the ErgBike, fighting heat, humidity, and bad pollen counts (allergies). Probably the highlight of the last 30 days has been my workout on 8/6: 10...

You have to host them on some open 3d party server, and use the [img] and [/img] tags to bracket the url link to the image.

Re: Sensing Error

The erg has been moved one time, maybe 6 feet horizontally, in the last 7 months, and the monitor arm doesn't get folded. Visual inspection of the cable reveals no pinch points. Plus it works just fine - for one session - if I remove/replace the batteries w/o moving anything else.

Sensing Error

Cheers Dougie, C2Scott if you're lurking -- all of a sudden I've started getting the 'sensor wire may be damaged' error code when powering up the monitor. I'm going to assume it's a firmware issue as discussed in this thread https://www.c2forum.com/viewtopic.php?p=417663#p417663 I'm theoretically up...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

More BikeErg today, cycling in 64% humidity that felt like a swamp. Reprise of yesterday: 12 x 1' on 30"....

Not too horrible a result, conditions notwithstanding.

Re: [In]decent Intervals

More or less the same since my last post here a month ago. Restrictions have been eased in Poland, but as I'm still in the high-risk pool on account of the compromised immune system nothing much has changed for me. I did manage to win my age group in the recently completed BikeErg [4k] Sprints, with...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Meh last 3 weeks. Lockdown has continued, pretty much, and I've pretty much stayed on the ErgBike rather than the rower. Weather has played a role in that as well: for some perverse reason, days when I've scheduled rower workouts have turned out to be too windy/rainy/punctuated by lightning to work ...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Meh last two weeks. I managed to get up to 100 x 30"/30" on the BikeErg on 5/16, the first 50 at 1:38.5 pace and the last 50 at 1:34.7 pace (average 1:36.6 pace); somewhere in there (5/14) I also tried for an OCD workout and managed 57 consecutive 30" reps at 1:39.6 pace out of a 66-rep session.... ...

Re: WRIC goes Virtual

To add to the previous couple of posts: FISA and C2 between them also need to come to some understanding regarding possible world records. At the moment, "All static indoor rower 2000 meter record-breaking times must be rowed at a Concept2 sanctioned indoor rowing event with witnesses present." My u...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Still in lockdown mode here in Poland, and likely to be that way for the forseeable future. If it ever warms up, stops raining, and the wind dies down, I will be able to take the cover off the rowing erg on the balcony and resume training on that. Meanwhile I continue to work out on the ErgBike. For...
