Re: Heart rate vs Power

A decent fitness test could now be developed for the erg using Ergdata but I doubt we will ever see it happen. Even a recovery counter of time vs heartrate at the end of your row for a few minutes would be a great start. Ergdata could use your age etc and come up with a score. Concept 2 can now star...

Re: Ergdata on Android with PM5

PM5 to Android using Bluetooth is sweet. Just watch the Concept 2 video on how to get the two paired up. I recommend you follow the video or you will stuff it up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhj5eWtipEg No problems with Ergdata other than password issues when you get the latest version of ErgDat...

Re: Achilles tendons

Pretty much had my first ever serious injury that required crutches to walk for 4 weeks back in the beginning of August this year. It turned out to be a tear in the achilles of my left foot but what was really annoying is that I couldn't attribute it to any event that specifically caused it. It was ...

Re: Heart rate vs Power

Very interesting but the first thing i notice is the heartrates are pretty low for the power output. Your not going to get a curve the same as this for the rower its the main reason why Zwift are having problems simply integrating the rower in with the cyclists and making it an even playing field. I...

Re: Altitude & Drag Factor

The most significant factor is the amount of dust in the flywheel cage blocking the holes around the outside of the cage. A really dirty Erg will see about 90 with the damper setting on 10 so that is hopeless for most people. As above typically in the 110-140 range is what your after except for the ...

Re: Building Muscle Strength and Bulk

I think everyone's opinions on mass is going to vary. The rower may not build huge mass but it will maintain what you have with the right sessions. For me its about maintenance and keeping the body fat level down to a level your happy with. Everything i do is low rating on the erg at 20spm. Have bee...

Re: Blood pressure - high systolic

Get your own Omron one and use it regularly so you learn to relax. I really hate them as the pressure builds i break out in a sweat. Unless you can relax through the whole test the reading will be out.

Re: Getting back to rowing - some advice needed

How old are you ? or did I miss that somewhere ? Age is a big factor but at the present time your weight is the biggest hurdle and its killing your time. I would suggest getting a heartrate strap and sticking to a low HR band and start rowing long sessions over 30 minutes at least 5 times a week. Fo...

Re: How to fix this wobble? Parts and instructions needed.

Looks pretty normal to me. The top roller bolts have quite a lot of clearance in the brackets so it depends on whether they are at the top of the hole or the bottom of the holes in the seat brackets, but ultimately the total amount of up and down is controlled by the single rollers under the slide.I...

Re: ErgData gets json error when syncing

Just used the new version myself and took a few minutes to realise what the problem was. Yes it should come up with a login or authentication error not some random meaningless error to the user. Sent C2 an email to fix it.

Re: RowPro pace boat studio

Find someone to row live Online with, way better than any pace boat.

I recently suggested to RP that they dump everything except the live rowing and get it on Android ASAP or else IMO RP faces certain extinction.

Re: RowPro Native 4K - OpenGL issues

Just checked my default set-up and "Direct3D9" or DirectX is the default. From memory every time I tried OpenGL I had problems. The default setting is Direct3D9, probably for a good reason.
