Re: Rigging a 1x with different sternward pitches?

I think a differential pitch of the sculls is the most likely cause for the problems. It is a well-known fact that most (C2) sculls and oars tend to twist with time. Since the carbon fiber of port and starbord sculls/oars spiral the same way, the pitches change in either direction from original, i.e...

Re: Ranger's training thread

do you think Mattais spent 7+ years getting ready to do his FM? The issue isn't rowing a FM. I've rowed scores of FMs. I have rowed 100K. I have rowed 167K. The issue is how to get substantially better, despite getting older, after you are a world record holder, as Matthias is now. Mattais' 1:47 fo...

Re: Ranger's training thread

You are calling out a 72year old man No, not at all. I challenged the younger guys out there. But no one took me up on the challenge. So Byron did. _Obviously_, he can't do these things. But he _said_ he could. So I just want to see if he's lying. It's puzzling, don't you think? Why would some brok...

Re: Ranger's training thread

The next session I would like to do , if you want to come along for the ride, would be to raise the rate to 26 spm, cut the number of 2K intervals in half to five, and raise the rest period to five minutes . ranger ...just wanted to highlight one of the rare realistic targets of Prof. Ranger - ther...

Re: Is there such a thing as Too Anaerobic?

Has anyone here tried polarizing their training like most of the studies recommend? It seems like most training plans focus on a lot of threshold work (pete plan, interactive, wolverine), while the articles talking about elite athletes focus on the 80/20 split, with most work at low intensity and t...

Re: Ranger's training thread

Leaving aside his breaks and general collapse, his pace creeps up steadily but isn't completely erratic at first . However, his stroke rate keeps spiking up and down from 27 to 34 spm. That's what I find amazing. Probably the wiggly line just reflects the difference between stroke side and bow side...

Re: Ranger's training thread

If I break Rocket Roy's 55 lwt WR at BIRC 2010, even by a tenth of a second, it will be _wildly_ unprecedented, given that I am only a couple of months shy of 60 years old. If I break Roy's record by 10-15 seconds, it will be amazing, gobsmackingly good. And if I reach my goal of 6:20 and break Roy...

ranger wrote:BTW, the Open lwt WR for a FM is just under 1:47 pace.

This makes sense.

1:46 @ 22 spm is 13 SPI.

13 SPI is rowing perfectly for a lightweight of any age.

No, they don't.

SPI is not even my concept.

If you want to clarify the concept, talk is PaulS.

But you are the inventor of OTW SPI.

Re: The Two Types of Training

I was distracted by the 2K in the fall of 2003, and so didn't even log in the result, but the 17:10 5K that I pulled that year was the fastest 50s 5K--period --just nudging out Martyn Low for the honor. ...

What is really interesting is it is the lazy buggers who doubt Freed.
