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

Yeah, this was probably the most locked into a pace I have ever been. The third 1K as you can see was exactly 1:45 and I am telling you I think I did pretty much every single pull right at 1:45. I know its not as good as my 1K and such but getting better and gave me back some confidence after my 2K...

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

New 5k PB last night at 17.27.3! 10 second improvement from 4/5 months ago. I was super happy to go under 17:30 and this was completely unplanned. After a very short warm-up I got on the Erg with the idea to do a hard but not all out 5K like I did last week - idea was 3k at 1:48 pace and then maybe...

Re: Starting Out

Thanks so much for all the replies, BPP on the back burner for now :D I've been watching the technique videos on the Concept page, I'm going to concentrate on these for a bit until I can row properly without having to actually think about what I'm doing at every stage of the row. After that I'll th...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

This already very flawed, you will find close to zero % rowers who have a 1 on 1 relation between squat and deadlift. Even if you only train squat as a rower, your deadlift will stay stronger.

That's why I asked how it's quantified.
No simple answer.

Could be to balance out, train muscle who are not trained in rowing.
Could be to get stronger, to be able to pull more per stroke.
Etc...

Re: To buy or not to buy?

I’ve been using the rowerg before December 25th everyday and loving it at home! Going to the gym and getting back to home was too long since I don’t live close so I decided on rower. I’m not a thlete but trying to get back into shape. Ive lost 8lbs so far and have 26 more to go! I love the quality ...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

The aerobic work in the plan is already very light Well that depends. There are two steady distance rows per week from 8K to 15K, If you rowed them both the full distance I wouldn't call that especially light on aerobic [or 'detraining']. My 8K PB was rowed whilst following the plan, OK it's not st...

Re: ErgData - is drive length recorded?

You can calculate number of strokes by SPM times elapsed time. You know the distance rowed. Distance per stroke is easy (Distance divided by (SPM times elapsed time)). Stu's screen grab may be easier. Its about the lenght of handle drive, not the meters per stroke. Don,t think they are recorded. Ju...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

After a few rounds you run into a wall, every hard session will be be a pb effort, at this point rowers burn out. Or reset the interval sessions and start over again from a slower point again. If you start really really slow, which I see some people do, the hard sessions are not hard at all, doing ...

Re: Pete Plan Strength Training

Hi Will FWIW I have been training to race for ten years pretty seriously (in a modest old guy way) and have included a fair bit of weights over the past 30+ years in the gym. Pretty much average 5 sessions a week right through this time. Weights have been secondary of course and a bit random. I inc...

Re: HELP: Training program from a grappler

So the real question is, should I really force myself to spend a lot of time in zone 2 and 3 to "build a base". Would this really be helpful for a sport like wrestling??? So yes and slower then you think. You are doing a aerobe 6min and nonlactic anaerobe sport. You are not using fully using your l...
