Re: Skierg pb thread

Last night I did something quite interesting. I added the number of times ahead or behind me for each of the 4 events, on each page of the final results , and added the numbers to see my placing in each event. Then I added the 4 placings together, divided by 4 to get the average, and added 50 to th...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Got a new 2k pb this afternoon: 10:01.6, beating the old by 4.5s. Average pace 2:30.4, 45spm Splits: 2:29.9, 2:30.5, 2:31.7, 2:29.5; (45spm for each split). Not the result I was after - I went to lower the previous 10:06.1 pb (TdS week 3) to sub 10. I was so sure I would get it due to recent fitness...

New 100 meter PB this morning.
100m / 22.2 / 1:51.0 / 65spm / 100df / minus 2.0 seconds
Great effort and result John - that's a big chunk for such a short TT.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Well done John - improving by 37.5s is a great result. I did my first SkiErg 10k today, thus completing the Tour de SkiErg challenge. Having never completed anything above 5k (as a single piece) before, I had to take a flyer on target paces that I could realistically sustain over perhaps 55min . I w...

Re: New buyer looking for advice

I would say whatever you do, also get a set of therabands and do exercises like these:

Re: Forum Flyers

Hey Paul. Good to hear from you. I believe you’ve made a useful discovery: a 3/4 stroke that doesn’t take much from performance and is kinder to your ankle joints. I’d say practise that stroke and use it to advantage. Rate is the multiplier no matter the power in a single stroke. Even at lower rate...

Re: Forum Flyers

Evening (/ morning) Flyers - long time no see! Tempted by this month's CTC so back on the rower this afternoon. Also, Jack finally posted a target I could chase. However, not a level playing field - I did mine free rate. What with a still dodgy ankle and now hip too (tweaked something at the front o...

Re: Skierg Force Curve

I have only recently been looking a bit more into SkiErg technique (and also XC ski technique for comparison). Today was the first time I looked at the SkiErg force curve... I found this interesting newsletter from the Biorow website: http://www.biorow.com/RBN_en_2010_files/2010RowBiomNews12.pdf Fig...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Hi Steve - thanks very much! I'm currently trying to get set for the dreaded 10k!

I have recently looked into the force curve - there's another thread about it so I'll post there to keep it all together:

Re: Skierg pb thread

Good work John. I also did the 2k yesterday as I've just started with a cold and thought I will only get worse between then and Thursday. I was hoping to go below 10 mins, but missed. I was holding steady at sub 2:30 pace, 100+ W up to 1050m, then dropped to 90+ W and horrible pace numbers as bad as...

Re: Skierg pb thread

New 2k PB tonight: 10:11.3, a decent chunk off from the previous 10:23.8 on 27 Aug. Starting to think sub 10' is not too far away! Will do more 400m or 500m interval work at 2:30 pace and below, with 90s or 60s rests.

Re: Skierg pb thread

Two new PBs for me tonight: First, 5k - 25:59.7 (from 27:37.8 on 29 July) Then, 1k - 4:58.8 (from 5:18.5 on 8 July) Pleasing to just sneak under 26' and 5' respectively, though possibly not the wisest thing to attempt two back-to-back PBs in the same session! This was one of those times when I could...

Re: Forum Flyers

Lindsay - sorry to say I will have to opt out of the IRL as I'm still not rowing - ankle feeling as bad today as 3 month's ago. I'm in two minds whether to sign up for the FF FTC (SkiErg metres) as although I will add to the overall total, I will without doubt lower the team member average!

Re: ErgData - interval workout problem

If your PM5 isn't running V27 firmware then the time to upgrade is NOW! I checked the PM5 on one of the gym SkiErgs tonight - it said hardware version 613 and firmware version 155. This seems odd as 155 (Jan 2017) is supposedly for the rower, not the SkiErg (for hardware versions 600 or higher). Ho...
