Re: Constant rib injuries

Long shot I know, but are you also doing supplementary weight training and wearing a belt? I get rib pain when I've had the belt on too tight or slightly too high.

Have you seen how much demand there is for home fitness equipment?

Re: Did HRV EPOC and Training Effect all fade away

When I did bike racing ending end of 2015 the people I did hear comment on HRV was that it wasn't a gamechanger as basically if you followed it you've never do any training! More recently I have heard the odd person in the media such as Ben Greenfield (podcast) extoll its virtues although you don't ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

@Stu - having done cycling, running and tri races, I'd say erging was the worst of the lot when it comes to mind games. That's interesting. I hate running, I might as well not swim as I'm so inefficient and the only cycling I have done is a 45 min spin class so I have no comparisons. When it came t...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Today's 5k TT was a bit frustrating, I guess it was both bad sleep and about 8h of training this week, my legs were tired at the start, got a bit better for the first 3k and very tired for the 4th k. I saw no way to get sub18 in this last k so motivation was totally gone short before 4k and almost ...

Re: Aerobic fitness vs Strength

Lifters are unfit, cardio people are weak, certainly upperbody wise. Here a good 100% cardio, 0% strength example. As much as I would love to be even half as fast as Michael Rasmussen is on a bicycle, there's no way I'd be willing to pay the price he has to get there: Yes, extreme example, they did...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

With home office I'm now able to get some extra UT2 meters on the bikeerg as we have conference calls every morning where I sit on the bike. Yesterday 90min bike @ 180W (AHR 110) and 45min on the rower @172W (AHR 118). This situation will last for some more weeks at least, hope this will help my ae...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

After doing a truly massive 15K on the ergo last week (athough I did 3 weights sessions - one upper body, one lower, one mixed) I thought I better do some erging today. Set the distance to 7.5K and did the first 10 strokes without warming up and immediately felt good so I re-set and did a 30min sess...

Re: Giving blood... how long to recover?

It really will not significantly impact his training. The OP is a 46 year old amateur rower. He doesn't have the olympics next week. He is erging. Go ahead and train as usual. Perhaps you won't be as fast or may tire easier at a given heart rate, but no reason to modify your training. 1-2 weeks and...
