Re: 'Serious' cyclists considering cross training with rower

keen to get a bit more 'all round' fit, maybe help strengthen my core (something I am terrible at doing in isolation) and rowing seems a good and time efficient way of doing that. Not meaning to be flippant but if you want to strengthen your core do a specific core programme. I'm guessing that by c...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Weights last Sunday, complete rest Monday and yesterday on the ergo: 8K including some high intensity and high drag efforts as was curious as to if my strength increases have carried over. 3 random efforts 250m@1:24.8 DF=142 200m@1:24.0 DF=152 175m@1:23.1 DF=164 I think it likely on this basis I wil...

Re: Rectal problems (Sensitive topic)

While we are on this topic....erg related injuries. :shock: About 6-9 months ago I was getting dull pain in one of my 2-veg (as in "meat and 2 veg")...took me a while to realise it was my inside thigh hitting it repeatedly when using the erg. :oops: Some shorts have better support than others...I fi...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I think I am in this weird place now that the idea of doing a test and not getting a PB scares me to the point that I don't want to test and feel like I failed. Need to get my mind right. I think eventually reaching this mindset if a very common problem with the erg. Once you've trained diligently ...

Probably should be in the health forum this one....arse chaffing is the worst I have endured but maybe jumping into 30km+ so soon after starting exacerbated this for you.

Re: From 6:29 to ??

Hello mate, welcome aboard. Lots of good info/people here. Just looking at your height/weight and times, I'd say your 500m will go fairly quickly. :) You'll probably have an element of muscle memory so you should make good progress, and you've clearly got an engine. Enjoy... Hello Gammmmo, Thanks :...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Ploughing a deep furrow of poor form on the rower at the moment. No energy in my legs - perhaps due to a tough w/o yesterday or because I'm trying not to be a fat knacker and have cut out pointless sugary snacks. Another HD today, but (although mindful of Wednesday's fiasco) decided to have a 1k bl...
