Re: Weight adjustment

Inside my almost 90 kg bod there's a 70 kg erger (at a guess) trying to get out. Which should I use for sums? Indeed, weights itself is only one factor, being fat, will never be usefull, watts per kg are usefull for say cyclists, but those guys are lean. And here we see guys getting WEAKER, when th...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Re Lowpull/max pace.

Pace on the pm versus pace on Ergdata. Don,t know whats the difference, but on Ergdata its a bit lower, not massive, but tye watts I see on the pm, are not recorded via Ergdata. Numbers are lower.

Re: Newbie Question

Re Film, even looking yourself could be usefull. No direct need to show it publicly.

As a beginner you can really look at your technique, there are no flaws ingrained yet, so use this to your advantage.

Re: New Dyno owner tips

Never seen a rower using it, think its not for nothing concept2 stopped making them. Rowers either do weights of no strenghttraining at all.

Re: Am I "overtrained"?

Hi Folks, Beginning in November of ’18 through early March this year I did Pete Plan type training, capping off with a 2K time trial, in which I PR’d. During that time I would frequently do 10K rows at 20 spm with heart rate capped at upper limit of UT2, and would usually average around 2:06 to 2:0...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I think Lindsay is right, for 100m you should rate at about 50. When I do 100m my stroke is much shorter than normal, the angle at my knees is about 90 degrees or a bit more at the catch. And I would recommend to be well warmed up and be cautious, testing the LP is very stressful for the whole body...

That makes perfect sense now @Allen, thanks. That explains why, at a much slower stroke rate, it catches earlier.

I've a lot of work to do on my technique!

Cheers.
And also why high drag is easier, fan spins at low speed, so not difficult to catch it and lots of time to pull.

Re: 2k-Training-Predictions

I agree that developing a strong stroke is the most beneficial for me at the moment, but I find that at times when I do sprint pieces on the erg im not very composed and am not able to apply my full pressure. Sometimes my shoulders hurt after pieces and I have also found that my right leg is strong...

Re: 2k-Training-Predictions

Nick Rockliff- Last 2k was 6:40 around 6 weeks ago, but it was an unexpected one so I think I could have gone 2 seconds faster max on that one. I row on a team and since then, aside from rowing every day, I put in around 15k on the erg most days and mixed in 2-3 sprint workouts a week, sometimes on...

Re: new-ish rower question about spm

Ok I made a video, but don't really want to post it for the world to see- any other options beside YouTube? I also think I see a major flaw of mine- when I am almost to the catch, I cant keep my back straight and i round over. I dont seem to ever get to a good 11:00, so it's more of a 12 to 2 motio...

Re: 2k-Training-Predictions

I am preparing to do a 2k soon and today for prep I did 3 by 1k with 4-minute rest at a 1:38.3, 1:38.1 and 1:37.4, averaging out to 1:38 flat for all three pieces. Is a 6:28 2k a realistic goal? Open-ended question for anyone. A very good predictor is 4x 1k with 5 rest, this is around 2k plus 1. Th...

Posting here to see if anyone knows of an update for this. Just got a skierg and would like to do synced workouts with it and the rower at the same time with ergdata.
You need 2 devices, 1 per machine, ergdata can,t recieve data at the same time from 2 machines. So 2 foons, or foon/ipad etc.
