Re: Rowpro

I’m a big fan. Been using it for about 1 1/2 years now. What they advertise is completely true. Your commitment instantly rises when you do training plans. You wake up saying what am I assigned to do today rather than will I row/what am I going to do? The variety of cycled workouts I think really pr...

New Rollers: Best Investment Ever!

I’ve got about 4 years/6million meters on my rower. Was getting progressively frustrated with bumpy loud clicking ride and seat sticking during active rest. Even cleaning the rail meticulously wasn’t helping. Splurged $11 for new rollers; BEST INVESTMENT EVER! Between erring on the side of replacing...

Re: Any Concept 2 owners use RowPro?

I use RowPro for the training plans. I have found that what RowPro advertises is completely true: specifically that your mindset changes from “what am I going to do today?” to “what am I scheduled to do today?”. If I row on my own, I push hard (probably too hard) and then likely burn out or take too...

Re: More beginner questions

Bill, You really piss me off. I’m 4 years younger than you, 6’1””, same weight. I’ve used the erg on and off for something over 25 years. A good solid row at age 40ish for me was probably 10K/40mins. When I did a lot of running and tennis when I was younger, I did much better on rower. For last two ...

Re: RowProw rower quits then program stops

Well, it happened again :-( I had several rows on RowPro after upgrading RowPro and the firmware, then same exact thing happened today on a RowPro slow pressure intervals training row.

Re: RowProw rower quits then program stops

Ya, got the firmware and hardware #s crisscrossed. Did the upgrade to V27 and have RowPro 5.3 and first row since upgrade went without flaw. Had two training intervals, one active rest in between, then active rest at end.

Re: RowProw rower quits then program stops

I’m updating to version 27 right now. I see that V.27 includes a”fix to unexpected workout termination caused by pause in rowing”. Until now I had thought that perhaps my program was hanging up between the active training and active rest portions of the workouts. Hoping this .27 upgrade fixes the is...

Re: RowProw rower quits then program stops

I’m not using a USB stick. I have USB-USB connection between laptop and PM5. I have a MacBook Air laptop with the most current operating system. I upgraded to 5.3 from 5.2 because I was hoping one of those bug fixes might handle this issue.

RowProw rower quits then program stops

Hi, Periodically, and with increasing frequency, I get on RowPro for a training row. Everything starts normally, then at some point during the session the animated rower stops. Everything else proceeds normally until the training portion of the session ends. Through the training session the program ...

Change warm up time on row pro time trials?

Can one change the warm up and warm down lengths on the row pro time trials?
Thanks,

Re: How do you train to keep a pace?

I use RowPro, and during the active rest intervals it asks me to go about 23-26spm. I feel more comfortable down at about 20. Should I let my rating fall below the recommended parameters and just focus on my heart rate? Thanks,

That’s the problem, the flywheel is still moving at the time I’m signaled to start.

Setting Up C2 Workout Of The Day On PM5

Hi,
I have a PM5 and am interested in periodically doing the C2 Workout Of The Day that I see in a daily email. The email from C2 says just input the letters by pressing the corresponding gray buttons on the right. Doesn’t work for me. Is there some simple step I’m missing? Thanks,

Re: Training Schedule/Suggestions for Senior Newby

I’ve become a fan of RowPro. It has really held my interest. The assignment of the workouts, the variety, and the cyclicity of them really minimize the potential for burnout.
