Re: Why only two weight classes?

For weight lifting competitions, the weigh-in begins 2 hours before the competitor's first event and lasts for 1 hour. In some competitions, the competitors are required to weigh again immediately at the end of their respective events. I did not find the rule for the post event weighing, but have ob...

Just a hunch. Power is a more basic measurement of the erg ; pace is a derivative that involves some arbitrary parameters. How do the watts displayed on the PM3 and PM5 monitors compare?
Pace is directly related to watts and visa versa.

Re: Which cell phone for pm5 / ergdata ?

The cable is a microUSB. I don't know if the phone is OTG capable.
Shouldn't it work with a microUSB cable?

Re: Which cell phone for pm5 / ergdata ?

The HTC One cell phone came last week, and the microUSB cable came today. I attached the phone to the Pm5 with the USB 2.0 / microUSB cable but it wouldn't connect. I tried this both with and without having a USB 2.0 A to B printer cable attached to the Pm5 and a charger. Ergdata saw the Pm5, but th...

Re: BikeErg PB Thread.

I bettered my 4k PB on May 13th. Splits: 2:06.3 2:07.3 2:04.6 2:01.2 1:58.8 / 2:03.7 pace / 8:14.7 I wanted to go out at 2:05 but got flooded with lactate and had to ease off. The trial seemed a bust, but the pace felt better after that and my finish was good. Previous PB March 20th. Splits: 2:06.2 ...

Re: trouble maintaining steady stroke rate

Instead of rates, you could aim for faster paces, and the rates will automatically adjust.
For example, you could set repetitions of 4', 3', 2' and 1' all with 0 rests, and do each one of them faster.
Then redo the same setup for subsequent sets.

Re: Which cell phone for pm5 / ergdata ?

CJ, thank you! That information helps a lot.
Do you happen to know if the HTC One is comparable to the Galaxy S4?

Keef and NoWatts, have you noticed a difference in performance and smoothness with the modification?

Re: Which cell phone for pm5 / ergdata ?

What would be a good price for an S4 or S5, and does locked or unlocked make any difference?

Re: Which cell phone for pm5 / ergdata ?

Citroen, thank you for all the detailed information! Since I use Linux, I'll need to figure out how to update the firmware. First, are you going to use this as a cell phone or are you just looking for a basic Android device to use with ErgData? If the latter, I would strongly suggest an older phone ...

Which cell phone for pm5 / ergdata ?

I've never used a cell phone and don't know much about them. However, using ergdata to transfer info into my notebook and log should be easier than writing it from the pm5 directly into my notebook. So I'm looking for an inexpensive cell phone that would do this and what cable will be needed (no wir...

Re: question about "peak power" workouts

Was listening yesterday to this podcast with Sebastian Weber the German coach, who said that when they first started working with Tony Martin, they found he had a huge aerobic engine but a glycolitic system that was too strong for an elite time trialist. He was basically "too fast" to go fast for 4...

Uhhh... I'm not a troll, and at this point everyone here is being rude to me.
I haven't been "arrogant"... I've appreciated everyone's help I've received so far from joining this forum.
You are fine. The idiots who've been criticizing you are the trolls.
