Re: Forum Login

I couldn't sign in for more than a month with my regular browser and had to use a different one.

Now it's working again.

Re: pm5 - how to delete extra entries

Meters rowed while checking the drag factor are not counted, which creates a workaround.
When the erg is used by a friend, I can update my total by rowing the extra meters by time on the drag factor setting.
I did this yesterday and it worked quite well.

Re: Expectations!

my arm is getting worse. can barely carry anything with that arm now and am in constant pain pretty much 24/7 :x Practicing slow movements and low tension holds with no weights can be helpful. For example, lift your arms slowly, hold them overhead in an extended position, lower them slowly, relax a...

Re: Subscapular adhesions/dropped shoulder

I hang in increments x 3 or so on gymnastic rings. I got some rings and straps a year ago but haven't put them up yet. How long do you usually hang on them? I highly recommend trying a Skierg, and also agree with the previous comments. Here's a comment from one of the Skierg competitor's profiles, ...

Re: Really off day - Handle Down, or slow down?

I started to think that I really wasn't going to make it all the way at my intended pace You should be training, not straining. Your base pace should be comfortable. Try rowing by feel for awhile. Get some tape and paper or cardboard, cut out a space for the overall time or distance, and cover up t...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Nice improvement, Kini. :!: I did a max low pull pb of 1:52 last Friday, as #7 of 2 sets of 10 low pull attempts with 45s rests. Most of them took me 12 strokes to reach max, but I don't recall if that included the 2 stroke head start. In any case, my start is quite slow. Doing 2 sets of 5 might be ...

Re: Best intervals session for a sub 20m 5k?

Am glad I decided to go with 2:00 recovery as I reckon 1:00 would have been too short and seriously hard work. This thread has helped me to think about recoveries more, :D and I agree with this. My rowerg 5k pace was only 2.4 percent slower than my 2k pace. Yours is 4 percent, and Nick's was 6 perc...

Re: What do you do to keep hunger away?

What do you do to keep hunger away? (Besides eat :D ) Make a plan, and keep on track with your plan. Portion control. Eat at specific times each day, and don't miss any meals. Drink plenty of water, especially first thing in the morning, tapering off through the day. Eat healthy fresh food, veggies...
