Re: Using protein and rowing?

Rowing isn't a good way of strengthening muscles. You will eventually get stronger, but not bigger. Weight training is the only sure fire way of getting stronger and bigger, and protein is absolutely essential along with all of the other nutrient macros of a good varied diet. If you are very untrai...

Do you recommend using protein and rowing to strengthen muscles?
In general, eating more protein is a good thing, modern diets often are low in protein.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Not sure if I have misunderstood here Alex, but each brand has its own speed/work conversion. It will be difficult to get consistent progression across all the different pieces and distances if they're spread across two different types of machines as well. I agree with Tim. 2 mins is quite a short ...

Re: Training Plans?

Been looking on the net and various places. Not new to rowing but new to SkiErg. Looking for a training plan to use for both rowing and Ski combined. It's amazing how little there is out there and most of it is actually someone trying to sell you a subscription to their site. Anyone got any ideas o...

Re: Wr 6k and 5.36.5 2k

And how do you shorten the stroke? You catch further away from the wheel? Bend your legs less? Bend your hips less? You keep the feet flat, this limits the kneebending. So yes the catch will be further away from the wheel. Everything else is the same. Its not complicated, if you do intervals a next...

Re: Biceps won't grow but forearms will

That 6.29 was after not much training, don,t think he ever did much aerobic stuff, he came from triple jumping. Was also before he got stronger, think he was 90 kg ish. Makes sense....I think he went all out for bodybuilding and eschews cardio now. In one of this videos he said even sliding across ...

I've read before that the best 2ks shorten their stroke at the end when getting tired. How does that work?
Legs lock up, so you throw everything you have left. I rate 30/31 during a 2k, the last bit I rate 40 or above. With a much shorter stroke, getting energy out of the upperbody much more.

Re: Tips for a shorter rower

Main thing, shorter people have a smaller frame, so less mass to put energy in the fan.

This means, expect slower time, use a higher rating and keep the drag on the lower side. For the rest, its the same, nomatter what height, the base movement stays the same.

Re: Biceps won't grow but forearms will

Ps, Matt did start in the uk forum, was a Forum Flyer, see ctc results. Pulled decent 2k, 6.29 from memory. That makes me feel better. I'd imagine he was HWT and given the "rule of thumb" I go by of 20s difference over 2K between HWT and LWT, my 6:48 (a bit soft) now looks slightly better. :lol: Pr...
