Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I've done 140kg (still pretty mediocre really) for 1RM but still think there's some gas left in the tank but I'm tentative with deads. Slow and steady seems to be working well, I find sometimes 1 session a week is enough for that but sometimes OK with 2. Trying to lots of sets of 6 at around 110-11...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Yes i do...i simply know what plates i need on the bar at a time to do what i need to. I've not attempted a 1RM... i don't have enough weights to even try :lol: Well, i probably do, but don't have enough heavy plates to get the weight needed on the bar for 1RM. At the moment the bar ends up almost ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

How much weight you deadlifting Anth, and for how many reps/sets? Erm total weight i dunno, but it's most of my plates on the bar hehe. I do warm up sets, Then do 3x8!!! But looking to go heavier soon, heavy enough to crank out 5x5's. Do you not log reps x weight for all your sets? Just trying to c...

Re: Rowing at later stages in life

OP - re: your comment about being 30. First elite rower I looked up....Matt Pinsent who is now 48. So...in Athens 2004 when he won gold in the coxless four (and was still an absolute beast) he'd have been 33. No excuses, my friend....

Re: Rowing at later stages in life

30 isn't old. :lol: I don't mean to be flippant but some of the degredation as we age is purely down to state of mind. In the last few decades IMO it's become increasingly possible for people to compete at a very high level whereas before they'd be written off. I think at the elite level it's often ...

Re: Marc Megna podcast

@uksarex - I listened to that podcast this morning. It was quite interesting, infact I'd like to hear more but rowing/erging doesn't seem to be that well supported in the podast world. Now, weights and say, cycling, far more....

Re: How much does 2K time drop in off season?

Hi. Apart from academically does it matter? You've peaked for your 2k and now you are going through the cycle again. Lots of base km to build your aerobic base and increase your potential Maybe it does matter if one is basing their training sessions on 2K time, so if this had slowed you might find ...

Re: Marc Megna podcast

Put another way - two people who are rowing a 2k trial, with their respective HR's at 97% Max, all other factors being the same - height, strength, experience ...are they feeling the same amount of discomfort? Obviously, it's an impossible question to answer definitively, but my guess would be "No"...

1. OP - thanks for the headsup ...I am an avid consumer of podcasts and will download that one. You might want to listen to the "browshowpodcast" ones too if not aware. 2. Given my experiences on the bike and on the erg (I've done running and tri too but not enough of either to form much opinion the...

Re: Reduce fat by eating same calories but fewer from carbs?

Ok Paul, you are certainly making a serious effort. Re protein, agree, modern food is packet with carbs, but protein is hard to find. And with the current trend of calling meat unwanted even worse. Do you keep track of your skinfolds? Certainly when you get lean a very good indicator. For bigger pe...
