Re: Drive time on monitor

New here. My first post is a question: what is the benefit of the drive time, is there an ideal range to shoot for? I’m assuming it has a purpose or it wouldn’t have a place on the monitor. Mwe.. Depends on a lot, how high is the drag, how high the spm, how long is the stroke, how fast is the pace....

Re: How do i train hard enough to achieve 30 million metres a year

It is possible to make lots of meters. Forum flyers used to have a member who took his erg to malls etc and rowed for good causes. Did this at a relax pace, but for hours a day, did 1 to 2 full marathons a day. Its like walking our cycling, an average person with no health issues can do this daily.

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

Yer, I felt like I was pacing it...will give it a few more goes... The pure sprinters, fade a lot more, think a guy like you should roughly be able to keep pace the first 300, from there a slow fade/increese of rate, last 100 max rating trying to not fade to much. Next time will be better, and stil...

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

Hot on the heels of last week's red letter day when I broke my 1min PB by more than I thought, I cockily thought I'd now blitz my 500m PB. As such I started pacing myself after 300m as was averaging in the mid 1:28s with the intention of sprinting at the end. In actual fact I just tied up and broke...

Re: Newbie seeking advice

First of all, height and thus weight matter a lot, most good rower are tall, I myself am 6.1 and among rowers often one the shorter ones. For the rest, you could give a bit more information, how your sessions go exactly. Rating, lower rates are usefull for training, if you do a race/timetrial you sh...

Re: Pain / Cramping feeling around kidneys after 30min of rowing

Re Height, there are longer rails for guys like you. The vertical component is difficult to alter, the chain goes like it goes. Re cramping, think its mostly a matter of untrainedness and possibly wrong technique, if you can,t use yours legs fully, its likely you overuse your upperbody? Given your b...

Re: Technique/Initiating stroke with back

Hi again, Regarding this last comment about meters, meters, meters. I agree. Could i ask for your advice on how to best do that? Should i base my ss sessions at 50-65% of FTP, if that is roughly defined by my 5k pace (19:30ish) in watts about 220W. Thus my ss would be between 110 w and 143 w or is ...

Re: Technique/Initiating stroke with back

Thanks man! This forum is great. I used to think I was supposed to transmit power to the footplate through my heels. Always felt a bit off. Yeah, I hear you about the higher rating.. need to drop another 10-15 kg and hover around 100kg. Think that will help with the times i can generate in 2k to 5k...

Re: Technique/Initiating stroke with back

So here's the video on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pCLKFjTcl4 edit. forgot to mention, this was 19spm and 210-220 Watts. Looks pretty ok to me, yes there is some backaction early in, but nothing major. Pretty good base to work from. You could do a few things, at the start of the strok...

Re: Forum Flyers

Not touched it myself, but see others mostly a good bit below 2k pace. But for that you need to know your current 2k :lol: Could be henry but there are no entries sub 1:30 yet even from the guys at the top who are likely around 6:00 or under for their 2ks? I thought that 8x 500m/1:30R would be arou...
