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...

few updates.

2 "races" completed. one 31 mins @209W and one 42 mins @202W

Run 7.5km @ 4:40 pace

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...

Re: Cannot see verification code anywhere

I don't see how item #4 could be any clearer. https://www.concept2.com/service/monitors/pm5/how-to-use/viewing-verification-code Not gonna lie, I've run into the same issue. There was a time I remember seeing the code every time I went into the erg memory. My phone died one day, figured I'd just ve...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Yesterday: https://log.concept2.com/profile/1086130/log/42204926 Went into my 1hr with UT2 as the plan, about 1 split in I got bored. Exactly 1 second slower pace than my current 1Hr PB for a finish @ 2:06.4. Today: https://log.concept2.com/profile/1086130/log/42221328 Don't know why, but I chose 15...

Re: Hit my million!

Congrats! You've been more consistent than me. I purchased my rower in the 2015-2016 season, and only got my million meter mark on 1/21/20. My fiance thinks the rowing machine is a torture device when she uses it, and definitely doesn't get the excitement of the accomplishments as well as the folks ...

My pm5 doesn't appear to give me a score screen outside of the target and fish game.... Maybe something with newer batch of monitors?

Re: Weight loss rest days

Hello, I've recently gotten serious about losing some weight, and I've seen many post that longer work outs (and diet changes) are the way to go. So currently I am rowing one hour every other day, I just started doing this two weeks ago. I am at a Drag factor of 115 and trying to keep my heart rate...

I cant imagine being stuck on a row boat that long. Doing a half marathon is tedious enough haha.

I haven't ever used it. Do you have to row at the same time or is it just a session that you both complete as and when you're ready?
Just an easy way to follow the workout log of a fellow C2 log user. Add a buddy and see their recent workouts essentially.
