If I hold my heart rate at 70% of max (using heart rate monitor) for long and slow rows, im only putting out about 90 watts when fresh.
Figure your watts per weight to have an accurate estimation, and also when comparing to other performances.

Does that look reasonable for a HR pattern?
Yes.
Would the following be a dumb idea? I was thinking about going out faster and trying to get my HR up to 174 (90% of HRR) much faster and holding it there until the last 6 minutes.
That would not be wise. The way you paced it was much better.

Re: Hello - Rower Choice

With respect to the rower and for that matter any exercise equipment that has a digital display... how accurate if anything is the display relative to calories burned? As far as I know, none of the exercise machines are accurate as to calories burned. However, the Pm5 calorie display is consistent ...

I'd rather have a Skierg

I suffer from the following : plantar fasciitis and the occasional sciatica pain - both vary based upon my activity levels. I have an office job so I am not up on my feet that often during the day. I stopped using the C2 rowing machines because of the sitting down type of exercise, which doesn't he...

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

I'm curious how people will average for this compared to a 1k time trial. I reckon around of just under 1k pace for the 500, hang on for the 400 (it's tough) then faster for the last three. Will be able to do a couple of times if you want to as it is relatively short. Looks like 4.5+ seconds faster...

Are there any free photo storing sites?
Here are 10 free photo sites. I've only used tinypic so far which is good but haven't signed up for it.

Re: Increasing stroke rate / aerobic capacity

the penny dropped when i realised i didnt have to apply the same high force in the drive at every stroke rate...his phrase tap it along really helped me. I wrongly thought short distances were about brute force in the drive, now i understand its better to get as many strokes in as possible. Ive bee...

Re: new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

If you row at a rate where you have to actively pull with your feet to return to the catch Which is always the case, because no one can return without using the tops or heels of their feet. the increased tension will make you use less power on this. I have set my feet on top of the foot rests to tr...

Would I potentially benefit from substituting some running for erg time? Thanks,
Yes, absolutely. Exercising and being on one's feet is extremely important.

How about the SkiErg?
That can be done seated, which would not put any load on your ankle.
Here's another vote for the Skierg.

Re: new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

I personally feel that cord variation, being at the most maybe 1 second per 500 meters, is not a significant factor, certainly not when compared to the vast difference in people's weights, and the fact that weight is not accounted for in the rankings. It would appear that a barely-heavyweight (like ...

Re: new rower, much slower 500m split than gym rowers

On the ship’s rowers, I was able to reach 1:40-1:45 split time at 36-40SPM (couldn’t do that for very long though...) and, on my home rower, the minimum that I reached is 1:57 in the same 40 sec. It is mostly around 2:03-2:09 split time. Did you not keep the averages? I'd try that session again to ...

20 minutes HIIT (40 sec at 34-40 SPM followed by 20 second recovery 20 SPM).
What was the difference in your 20 x 40 second averages?
