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

I had my first (and I daresay, only) go at a half marathon today. My target was 1:49/500m pace, for around 1.16:30 (accounting for a little sprint at the end). My plan was gentle negative splitting all the way to the end. This went to plan, for the most part, but then as the finish line approached,...

Re: Elbow Pain

First of all, hello everyone. I recently entered the indoor rower world by buying a new Concept 2 model d rowing. I bought it about 3 days ago and my priority is to get the right form. However, there is a situation that bothers me. I've had a pain in my elbows since I started rowing. And this pain ...

Re: Another form request - 4th Week of BPP

Not so bad. You do use your back to lead the motion, and the legs should follow. Certainly in the first clip, your legs do very little. Re shins beyond vertical, feet are low enough, do not go lower!, instead, close the gap between your upperbody and legs at tge catch. That said, there is no single ...

Re: Skierg good shoulder workout?

HJS You state that a healthy rotator cuff is necessary for the Skierg. I'm an electrician and have had some shoulder/arm issues. I have zero pain on the Concept2. Thinking about the Skierg for working different muscle groups. Thoughts? Thanks. I would say, if possible, try it out somewhere. From a ...

Re: Skierg Weight Classes

There's a practicality problem with classes too. Indoor Rowing is a niche enough sport (it's not soccer!), but there are plenty of people who train seriously on the erg. As I write, there are 15576 times posted this year for 2k across all categories. For the SkiErg, there are 779. If we had several...

Re: Skierg Weight Classes

Fair enough Henry, you put up many good points. I guess in years to come I’ll have to try and become an aerobic monster :mrgreen: if I wanna get even in the ball park of some of those records! Don’t know what you are doing on the skier, but on the rower you are doing pretty well. Its also a mindset...

Re: Skierg Weight Classes

Hi, I have always wondered why there are no weight classes for the Skierg, so I finally decided to contact C2. I got this response: “there is no talk of weight classes for SkiErg records as of now. The reason there are weight classes for indoor rowing is because there are light and heavyweight clas...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

https://i.postimg.cc/F1RpW2Lw/IMG-20210125-082104-318.jpg This was one of the most comfortable rowing sessions I've ever done, so much so that I seriously considered doing another one. It was one of those days that don't happen often enough. I'm doing an intervals session tonight, probably 1k repea...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Well, that is one perspective. If I may offer another: Henry, most 20-somethings wouldn't be able to get within a dozen splits of your 5k. This is seriously speedy erging session. Maybe.... although I have my ideas about that :D Point I was making, or trying, Skier is a strange machine, a think rou...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

:D I didn't mean that the pace you were going the other day was too fast, but it lets you know what is too fast e.g 0.5 secs faster. I know my failed 60 mins on Monday wasn't necessarily too fast, it just wasn't the right day, or the right strategy. That's a great 5k, and 1:27 to finish is very imp...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

To put this in perspective. The 40/49 Wr Fm was set a few days ago at 1.50 pace. 40/49 :shock: B) So fast... Wow Henry! That’s an impressive Wr, your row also. What is skierg rate 41 equal to on the rower? In general, rating on the skierg is higher. I would say 50% extra. A 5k on the rower for me w...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Skierg. 5k repeat, yesterday did nothing, also my back played up big time. But did not effect todays session. Idea was to better fridays effort, start out the same way, to fast Stu :wink: , but keep the slow down/HD limited. Kept 145 for the first 1500, from there back to 150, and bring it home. Was...

Re: How to Use the Legs?

Hi everyone, I'm a total noob here, I just got my C2 in December so fairly sure I'm making some beginner mistakes. I have been practicing with the Dark Horse Rowing YouTube videos so for the most part I think all is going ok, but I don't seem to be using my quads at all, just gripping my glutes! At...
