Re: Men Health Rower

They're 600 quid on eBay :shock:

Get a decent C2 for that coin.

Re: New rower so Stiff

Yeah grip the handle with less pressure and more relaxed.

That's a really good 5k regardless of the SPM!!!

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Done a WO with Shane Farmer aka Darkhorserowing who was doing a youtube livestream.

1min rows, pushups, burpees, situps, dumbbell curls, 1min rows, repeated for 4 rounds. Really interesting stuff doing it all along with him.

Glad to get it done though :) df125 for this session. https://i.imgur.com/mfWtH9l.jpg Warmdown stretches. Today i done 1hr of weights and some bodyweight training... v...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I've been lifting heavier weights lately and end up with a twinge 2 days later in the upper mid section of my back.. made me feel sickly. Feels like a dull ache now so it's slowly getting better with rest!!! I have a 6k row planned for tomorrow. My last erg session was 30th last month, so not too mu...

Re: Older PM2 for sale, €600 plus shipping Italy

Sounds expensive for what it is... probably a Model C. So likely yes it will have been around the block a lot!!!! C2's are considered the most reliable and robust rowers on the market, but like with anything, things can go wrong and need replacing. Clutches, bearings, sprockets can wear out, and cha...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

30 minutes steady'ish last evening, i really enjoyed it. Tbh, i'm enjoying the rower even more these days for one reason or another. Certainly using it more frequently with all that is going on in the world at the moment.

30:00 @ 2:05.5 - r21 - 7171m (df134) RPE 5

Some warmdown stretching.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I've been isolating a bit more lately for obvious reasons... and making more use of my erg as a result, can't be a bad thing :D 2k @ 1:55 - r26 (df134) yesterday. Today 30 minutes @ 2:04.7 - r22 HR 146 (df134). I enjoyed this session, and varied rate and pace along the way to make it a bit more inte...

Re: The virus thread

Fortunately for me in these tougher times i have everything i need at home, and have trained this way for years, so as far as training goes i'm totally independent. I have also lived alone for about a decade, so self isolation is completely the norm in my case! Though i'm not sure how much longer i ...

Re: good form = butt worked?

Discomfort can mean bad posture and sequences, causing us to use the wrong muscles. Suggest you keep straight back and use low drag (100), low rating (20) and low feet (0 holes showing). Do not try to work too hard, training does not need it: the large muscles that actuate the knees and hips overlo...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

A steady away 30 minutes today. The plan was to sit on r21 and cover 7k for the session! Took about 10 minutes to get comfortably settled in then felt good the rest of the way. Since regaining my left arm strength, what a difference, it makes my time spent on the rower so much more enjoyable :) df12...
