Re: New 1 minute and 100m rankings!

Where is the downloadable certificate? Haven't found it anywhere on log.concept2.com e.g. http://log.concept2.com/challenge/event ... prints.asp.

Re: Laptop for RowPro

A modern laptop is fine. I use one with an i5 chip and a graphics processor and it works well. Note that you can run RowPro in degraded 2D graphics (never actually done this!) and your old Dell should be able to keep up. You'll at least be able to see your relative position in the row, without the n...

Re: Chain oil

http://oldgmctrucks.infopop.cc/images/yeahthat.gif The new chains (Dec 2012+) are nickle plated and are far superior for corrosion. Didn't hear about that. I have the old chain, and everytime I wipe with oil I get rust marks. The room is not damp, so this was puzzling me. Perhaps I'll need to get a...

Re: blisters on hands

Just wondering why nobody's said yet that the answer's on the UK forum! :lol: I thought I needed Nike fitness gloves and I was very happy with them for a while. Then, I only needed them every other day. Then, I started phasing them out completely. Now I never use them. And I'm proud of my calluses. ...

Re: Question for those who lost a lot of weight

All true. But if you lose more than 100 pounds, your stomach skin will be hanging down toward your knees. Not pretty. A nip-and-tuck will be needed, as stretched skin doesn't contract after weight-loss. I always wonder, though, what happens if somebody who gets such plastic surgery puts on another 2...

Re: Big change at top of nonathlon

Regarding "its a thing for seniors mostly": I didn't agree until I looked at the top ten listings. Why is that? Is there some bias in the data? It should be as "easy" for one age group to dominate as any other. Don't look me up in nonathlon, to avoid my embarrassment. Still looking to "sharpen" (gag...

Re: Hi Peoples am a NEWBIE

Welcome. Weight loss is the difference between calories burned and food intake. So, erg-wise, shoot for distance rather than short spurts. Of course, if you find distance boring, you can always liven it up by alternating between short spurts and recovery. Rinse and repeat. Lots more if you search fo...

Re: Erging in a small studio apartment, help!

Brilliant idea! We're lucky in the sense that it is a whooshing (white-noise esque) sound as oppose to something obnoxious like drums or something to that effect. I have heard many things about the c-breeze, and it seems like a valuable investment, but from what I've heard, no one has confirmed tha...

Re: Overuse Injuries

I'm currently finishing the 10K MARCH MADNESS challenge with 3 more days to go and as this required overuse of the rower don't know if a pain in my left hand maybe overuse soreness. I don't want it to became an injury. Can it be related to the increase on the meters rowed? Quite possibly. This year...

Re: RowPro versus PM3/Logcard

Obviously RowPro doesn't work for everyone but it's a great motivator for me. ...and going for crap like nonathlon scores and WRs. Not only do I find rowing against other (real) human beings in RowPro a great motivator but I also (hate to say this!) enjoy seeing how I compare against other rowers m...

I use a "Wet One" on selected parts of my erg, including the rail, after each work-out. (Very refreshing on me too!)

You're right. The log only accepts a code for ranking pieces.

Re: Erg supplement for OTW Rowing

You should consult with your coach. I think your greatest risk is over-training.

Re: Oarbits Live Feed

That is great but I use IE 8. You're clearly missing the frustration of seeing the day and date but not seeing the time at all. This affects Chrome users. I see this problem in IE because I keep my screen oriented in portrait mode. Seeing the time of day in (for me) EST rather than GMT is a nice bo...
