Something has disabled BBCode in the forum settings.
Do you mean my forum settings, or the forum settings for everyone?
If mine, then I don't know what that could be, because everything that I've checked is still on.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Martin, how did you get your exact time for Low Pull?

I would like to do that, but the shortest I can get the Pm5 to record anything is at least 20 seconds.

URLs in signature / forum - have stopped working

The urls in my signature, and on the forum, have suddently stopped working.
BBCode, [img], [url], and smilies are all ON. Flash is off. The three options are all unchecked.
I have done nothing to change them. The code is visible in my signature. How can I get it work again?

Parts should be with me later this week, quite an expensive repair though
Personally, I'd get a new one at that point.

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

Carl, anyone except you can do consecutive 100m rows. Seriously, it's not that hard to do, and heart rate makes absolutely no difference. For example: 6x 100 meter sprints with 2 minute rests would give you a great idea of any machine differences. However, do 30' repeats with heart rate if you want....

I will try a 500m all out row on both w/heart monitor and see how it compares.
Heart rate varies greatly and won't be a good comparison.

Just do a few all out 100 meter sprints on each machine and then compare your results.

Congratulations on your awesome results, Marius. You inspire me greatly. :D
You're also in reach of the fastest Skierg CTC for this month. 🤔

Re: Skierg pb thread

My goal for this month is to improve my times for the Skierg performance series.
A 1k pb felt almost too hard around 300 meters this morning, but then it kept feeling better.

2:12.2 48 153 / 2:12.0 44 168 / 2:12.0 44 186 / 2:11.5 45 199 / 2:08.5 47 199

Re: Am I "overtrained"?

After the 2K TT, I continued with relatively high weekly meters, cutting out the short hard intervals, but adding longer intervals on short rest and then “tempo” rows for 10K. You need to keep doing the shorter hard reps, and have longer recoveries for the longer ones, so you can likewise do them f...

Re: BikeErg and CTC?

The wattage required to go at a given pace per 500m on the indoor rower is the same wattage required to go at that pace per 1000m on the BikeErg. However, the “meters” traveled has been given a value that more closely simulates biking on the road, and has been pegged at 2X for the same power. Meter...

Re: 60 years old - Rowing due to running injury

I heard rowing burns as much or more than running (I run at a pretty strenuous level), is that true? No, much less actually. Strenuous training is fine, but doing it all the time would set back your progress. To lose weight, improve your diet, use portion control, and cover many more meters in trai...

Re: What Skierg training are you doing?

Steve, I'm doing 100 percent on the Skierg at the moment, plus daily loosening exercises and walking.
I've not used a rowing machine for ten plus years. Those rivers sound dangerous, but lots of fun when they're safe. :D
