Re: KREW seems promising for Android

All of my issues with 'stability' ended up stemming from my PM5 firmware not being completely up to date- I bought my erg with the PM5 back in 2014 I believe, not sure if that's 1st gen or not. That is a first gen PM5. Current firmware is V30. https://www.concept2.com/service/monitors/pm5/firmware ...

Re: KREW seems promising for Android

I really like KREW and used it since it was first available and the developers are really nice. But as they developed more features and made it more stable it actually got less stable for me so I gave up. I have a first generation PM5, not sure if that's the issue. Right now I use AK Rowing on my G...

Re: Pushup 21 day Challenge - advice please

For certain - wrist issues can definitely be a concern with high volume pushups.

I may have missed it - but make sure you have some sort of pushup bar - this will help with wrists at least, being able to set the wrists in a neutral position is a major pain relief in the long run.

Re: Introducing myself, with a few questions

Hello, Got an erg at the beginning of March to cope with the premature end of the cross-country ski season and home confinement. Clocked in over 500k since then mostly based on the Pete Plan, and it seems the easy technique-based gains have been made by now and progress is starting to level off. I ...

Re: Regarding the “fat loss zone heart rate” myth, and possible advice for people trying to lose fat

Low Hf work is very suited for burning fat, its aerobic, its can be done in high volume, it is easy to recover from. Bodybuilders often just walk in contest prep. Not for nothing. High intensity, does burn more energy, but needs much more glycogen, can,t be done in high volume and takes long to rec...

Re: Inequity.

I've been chewing on a response for a while, along with my weekend chocolate bounty. I can see how the inconsistencies have crept in. On one hand I see the Citroen side, that this forum isn't designed / intended to host a large number of one-way blog-type blasts that get occasional comments from ot...

Re: Inequity.

I'm not sure I disagree with Ripples sentiment... Jonathon's "Indecent Intervals" thread is more bloggy than what Graycyn posted.... We've had other threads similarly formatted stick around. I had a thread that I had kept active for a few weeks under the same umbrella.... I don't see why these other...

Re: Is this accidental X training?

I'm pretty much a novice but am moving gradually from 3x10 to 3x8 to 4x6 to 5x5, but only as technique allows. deadlift is pretty easy technique i find so moving fairly fast there. bench I've worked hard on improving and am pretty much there i think. squat I'm pretty nervous about. might start wear...

Curious as to how you're structuring your bench training. I'm out of the lifting game these days, I only worked with a 5x5 routine for the big 3 lifts.

Re: Straight legs before recovery?

I don't think of it in terms of locking out or straightening the knee, but more in pressing down my legs, using my quads to their max. (I'll have to pay attention to my knees next row). What I do sometimes when I'm at a fast pace and getting fatigued (like near the end of a hard 2K) is not getting ...

Extended periods near maximum heart rate

Did a 1hr row tonight restricted to 20spm. As I felt more warmed up I kept slowly increasing the engine. I spent the last 12 minutes pulling 180ish watts at 190BPM average. I'm under the impression my Max HR is 194-195 rowing, I saw a brief 196 during this row but it dropped like 4bpm immediately. R...
