Asensei

hi all I have today completed all the Eric Murray sessions on Youtube. I think these have really helped my technique and fitness. Interested in Asensei and don't mind paying if it's of value. Ive had a look and I don't see more than around 12 or 13 Eric Murray sessions. Are there more that appear on...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Thanks Henry , appreciated. I woke up this morning with more pain - had to get wife to put sock on my left foot and tie shoelaces!! So I'm going to wait until the pain is gone and I can fully move. How frustrating!

Re: Pete Plan Thread

More or less always
Henry, how long do you usually take off the erg when you have pain? I know I can't apply this to my situation but I'm just interested to know if its 1 or 2 weeks or 1 or 2 months.

Re: Pete Plan Thread

OK thanks Henry, makes sense. I think yesterday was in hindsight a bit early to get back on the erg. This morning, I had a sharp pain in my lower back while washing a plate in the sink - I was only slightly bent over at the waist The rest of the time is just mild pain when I bend over. I'm trying to...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Hi all Its been a while since I did the Pete Plan so hope everyone's going well. I did post a message in health and fitness board but didn't get a huge response. Has anyone had lower back pain due to erging? How long did you rest before starting again? Did you wait until pain had completely gone? I'...

Re: Lower back pain recovery

last session I did (when I hurt my back) was 6 x 8 min intervals with 30 secs rest. Rate was 18 rising to 22. Wattage was between 152 and 159 as the rate increased (split around 2:11) If I do race pace pieces I'm usually at around 30 spm max I haven't moved the stretcher from new..if you mean the fo...

Re: Lower back pain recovery

Hi Will thanks - I actually found your YouTube video while researching LBP earlier today. Will take another look and try some out.

The pain is decreasing today so I think a week off the erg should do it then ease back in with some short pieces.

Lower back pain recovery

Hi All I’ve been putting in some 45 minute plus sessions on the Rower recently-around five times a week-usually Eric Murray’s sessions from YouTube. On Tuesday night I noticed some lower back pain which I think was associated with me trying to get my stroke length up and perhaps leaning back too far...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

hi guys - haven't fallen off the Pete Plan wagon yet, although as it gets drier and lighter here in the UK I'm trying to get out on the bike more... Today was 3.1 - 4 x 1000m / 5min rest. Last time I did this session was October 18th last year where I managed an average of 1:59.0 so thought I'd aim ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

I'm on week 6 of PP and have a couple of questions re doing this correctly. At the beginning I decided on my pace for the long distance part, and set the interval pace at 10 seconds faster per 500m. I never came up with what seemed to be a specific formula for picking these pace times and I believe...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Hello all. First post with a dumb question about the BPP I didn't see answered anywhere: Looking at Week 1 for instance, we see three core workouts followed by two additionals in brackets. What is the intended daily schedule for these? Are they intended to be completed straight through M-TU-W-TH-F ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

hi all...have been off the rower (and everything else) for a couple of weeks with a cold. At the age of 49 the common cold seems to wipe me out for a couple of weeks from doing any hard exercise. Decided I'd had enough time off so went for a 6K hard effort for PP 2.5. Probably not the best idea for ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

PP 2.3 - 4 x 2000m / 5min rest used my average from 20 Nov (2:02.8) for the first 3 intervals then fast as poss in the last.
