Re: Coping strategies

I like to be very focused with the PM in my sessions... i have a bit OCD with some of the numbers being fairly consistent :D Sometimes on a 5k, i'll stick Iggy Pop's (New Values) album on, this has some fun son...

Re: Coping strategies

Its all about mindset, you need two things, the will to suffer and knowing what can. Pacingwise, you need to get around 70% feeling ok ish, at least you could keep pace give or take 1/2 seconds, from here it gets ugly, if not you went out to slow, if more you started to fast.

Re: Hello - Rower Choice

What difference does higher off the ground mean, when you're tired. You're sitting down in both D and E instances :lol: I would say the E holds firm, better than the D when in sprinting situations. The D's have a tendency to go walkabouts on sprints with their lighter build structure. This shows yo...

Re: Hello - Rower Choice

Thanks for the information about the PM5 set up and also about the SkiErg. With respect to the rower and for that matter any exercise equipment that has a digital display... how accurate if anything is the display relative to calories burned? Forget that anyway. The only way to get fitter and weigh...

Re: Hello - Rower Choice

Re model E or D. E is higher and thats horrible when you are tired. You want the ground nearby in that situation. Almost never an E is better. D can also be stored much easier, by putting it in two. What difference does higher off the ground mean, when you're tired. You're sitting down in both D an...

Re: New to rowing and looking for a basic training plan
