Re: Skierg good shoulder workout?

Hi all, I currently own a rower but am looking for something that will develop my shoulders more. Has anyone seen good shoulder development using one? I realise a weights program is possibly a better alternative but if I could get good development and get a cardio session that worked my core too th...

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

Re av/pace. Just my idea, the thought behind it, that if you see it, you can follow it. But ofcourse do what you feel comfortable with.

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

Thank you! Yeah, the biggest element of uncertainty is that I don't know what I can, the intervals I recently did show me that I'm on a good way. My raceplan is: - faster start for 5-10 strokes - settle pace to 1:41 for the first 1k - then, depending on how I feel, speed up to 1:40 till 600m to go ...

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

Nice work Martin, congrats :D Thank you Henry, it really works better to stay fast as long as I can and accept the fade. The first 30sec were a bit slower than possible (to be fit for Friday's 2k and not risking an injury), but much more fade than last PB. I'll try another one in a few weeks, then ...

Re: Interval Pacing

Thanks fellas. I'm also going to try to be more consistent and not pull max for too long at the start of each one. Maybe 3-5 strokes to get it moving and then settle in. Will see if that makes the set more comfortable when I do the 2km's tomorrow PM. Learn to start out slow, use zero powerstrokes. ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Yeah....2km+2 is maybe a stretch too far at the moment for 4x :? . I need to reset my targets on these interval sessions as the BPP tends to encourage you to take the last average from the same session and then try and go quicker on the last. Trouble is, if I raced previous interval sessions then I...

Re: How to determine pace range for different rows

My main challenge is accepting that fact that rowing slower for longer distances doesn't mean that I'm not getting a good workout. male, 67 y/o 6’0”. 5k PB is 23:49. So long as you maintain a high work level in each single stroke, you are getting a good workout, whatever the rating. Stroke Work is ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Henry, wrangling one team among several teams of Wolverine rowers in and out of a busy collegiate boathouse or gym with a limited number of machines very likely necessitated the use of time “centers” for interval starts. The “Remarks” were made on an internet forum to a self selected collection of ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Jack, the fixed time slot is very much used around group sessions. Everybody starts every rep at the same time.

5 min rest after 500m is fine, but way to long to mimic 2k fatique.

Re: Just assembled it today.. total noob

Number one, first 6 weeks, only focus on your stroke. Build a good stroke and use a good technique. After that depending on your goals focus on a plan, or make one yourself.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

At max, it can be done around 1k plus 1 / 1.5, but thats pretty horrible, around 6/7 in you really start doubting you can make it. I never reached sub 1.30, and over the years have done this pretty often. In the ctc tables you can find a few months doing this one. Not that a session should be max, ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Tried a 10 x 1' on 1'r interval session today. Never did this one so wasn't exactly sure what pace to shoot for. Decided to try 2K-2.5 (1:35), ended up averaging 1:34.5 at 33 SPM. I kept all intervals between 1:34 - 1:35. This was good hard work but I felt decent and did a hard CF workout yesterday...

Re: Maintaining Fitness - Proposed routine

Overall, you are far from your potential yet, if you stay active including a few decent aerobic sessions you have nothing to worry about.
