Re: Confused about training strategies

I think under 130 is too low unless you know this is the correct target? Sounds like a very probable target to me. I have had my aerobic threshold measured in a lab. It was 134 BPM. This was a running test (still waiting for my rowing test). There are a lot of opinions on this issue, but one quite ...

Re: Garmin Connect Integration

Unfortunately, Garmin Connect is right now under maintenance, so I have not yet been able to verify that this is also visible in the sessions which are auto synced to Garmin Connect. Turned out that this is one step forward and two steps backwards. Two out of three sessions haven't synchronized fro...

Re: Garmin Connect Integration

One question though is about laps... for interval training, it would be fantastic to have the data available for the individual laps in Garmin Connect. Is this something that is scheduled? I am reviving this old thread, because there seems to be new development: I just noticed in Golden Cheetah tha...

Re: PM5 and Garmin Chest HRM

So the ErgData app receives the heart rate info via communication with the PM5 (via bluetooth), not directly from the chest strap. ...which nobody claimed that it did. The PM5 connects to the chest strap. But it will not do so on itself. You have three options for getting a pairing: pair it manuall...

Re: Training strategies for rowing as a 2nd sport

And what is "work into the handle"? I don't think anyone answered this one, so I will give it a go. The short version: When you pull with your hands, you produce "good" energy, which is translated into watts/meters/pace by the monitor. When you pull with your feet, you produce "bad" energy, which i...

Re: Noob errors from a newbie, some tips & encouragement

Of course, but again that's easy to say as a seasoned rower. Probably. But it is also easy to say for me. In my second or third rowing session ever, I did 6+10 km. I wanted to do 10, but was interrupted by other business at 6 km and had to start over half an hour later and do the full 10 km. At tha...

You would have to row really slowly to not burn out
Yes, that is exactly the intention.

If you can't row 5 km, you are rowing too fast. Simple as that.

Noob error 0: Thinking that intensity is more important than duration.

Re: My breathing rhythm is horrendous; how can I fix this?

I hear you, but its tough because from a stamina standpoint, I feel like I am capable of the rows I am doing. Then you are training too hard. After your everyday training, you should feel that you could easily have done more. This is the type of training which will build your endurance (which is ne...

Re: Setting drag factor

I assume that one still keeps the machine regularly calibrated, even if one doesn't regularly clean it.

Also, I thought I read somewhere that the BikeErg does one auto calibration per session (where the Row Erg does one auto calibration per stroke). But I may have understood that wrongly.

But the upshot of all this is that you need to keep the thing very clean if you care for accurate measurement.
No. The measurement is accurate under all circumstances. The cleanliness will only affect which damper position you will need to get the desired resistance.

Re: Newbie can't get low rating.

Use more time for the recovery part of the stroke. Then your rate will come down.

If you don't change the drive part of your stroke, your pace will be slower / watts will be lower. So if you want to keep the same pace or watts as you did before, you will have to put more work into each stroke.

Ergdata + PM3: Strokes are skipped in logged data

I have a PM3 (first model, with newest firmware for that model), connected via cable to an Android phone running Ergdata. I have noticed that when doing short intervals, the max. watts which I saw on the PM3 screen, are not to be found when I look at the recorded data afterwards. In this workout it ...

Re: Model C - chain catching anti-throw device (PN 1002)

Does the nickel chain fit the model C sprocket ? I was going to change it anyway. Our local distributor told me that I have to buy the new sprocket and axle to use model D chain. You can buy a silencing kit for model C, consisting of a nickel chain and a sprocket, probably similar to those used in ...

Re: Correct USB cable?

I find it pretty confusing. Seems like the plug on the PM5 end is like that for a USB printer - squareish and apprently called "USB B male". So I searched for iPhone to printer cable and came up with this one for £3: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sharplace-Adapter-Converter-Charging-Printer-White/ Just ...
