Re: Prizes and manipulation

Oh yes, this has been noticed. There are a few recent threads discussing absurd times/rankings. Some of these are malicious, some are accidental key mistakes, some are also malfunctioning PM monitors. There is a system for reporting suspicious log entries, but when you start looking at regular chall...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Took another 2 day rest and rowed a new 2k just now and did it in 9:11.0. Pretty darn happy with that result! 12.7 secs faster than any previous run. And I didn't even push it! Regards, Edwin. Congrats on the PB. You're starting to realize the quick gains in aerobic fitness already, compared to not...

Re: Pain / Cramping feeling around kidneys after 30min of rowing

Thanks for replies. I wonder if it's due to muscle tightness. Do you do a desk job, work at a computer, and drive a lot? Highly probable. I work a desk job. I do get to walk around the office a lot and alternate between standing and using a saddle chair but I probably still clock plenty enough hour...

Re: Introduce yourself

Hi everyone, I'm a 56 year old female newbie to indoor rowing. My husband got a Concept 2 secondhand early in 2019 as a cross-training tool and I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm not going to break any records, but am looking to build fitness and strength. I've got a bit of a complicated physical ba...

Re: How do i train hard enough to achieve 30 million metres a year

I think the answer to the OP's question is to NOT train hard at all. Row at a 3:36 pace for 12 hours a day will get you 100,000 meters per day. That should allow enough time in the day for bathroom breaks, meals, a trip to the grocery store every now and then and 8 hours of sleep before the next sl...

Anyone have suggested rest times for a 10x 1000m session? Also, maybe a pace I should aim for?
I always do a 10 x 1km on 60 secs rest and at 2k + 8 or 9. You want it to be a tough session.
Thank you, I'll give that a shot

Re: Holly's journey

A nice routine week this week, may there be many more like it. I've rowed 2000m four times and my time has reduced by a minute and thirty seconds over the distance, so progress is being made. In addition I've lost a further 4lb in unwanted flab. Feeling like I'm actually getting somewhere now. The ...

Re: Pain / Cramping feeling around kidneys after 30min of rowing

I think the cramping\tightness below the tip of the shoulder blades could definitely be a result of the damper being at maximum, especially after seeing the different PBs you have set. You're a big strong guy, and I think you're putting more stress into your back on the finish, when a lot of that po...

Re: Tenshuu's Trials

Took last night off. I've been complaining about the signs of needing rest but trying to ignore them. Got home from work late, 10km would have immediately eaten into my sleep schedule. Felt much better rested this morning, sinuses still interfering with normal breathing but otherwise feeling better ...

Re: Introduction and Goals

Did a slow 10:40 2k just a few hours ago without issues. Edwin. Definitely take it easy on that bicep. If the doctor says that the low intensity aerobic stuff is okay, that might be good for you to stick with lower intensity anyway. Getting that aerobic base will allow you to add some volume withou...
