Re: Restricted rating

I row restricted rate a lot.... And can see its benefits...My concern though is specificity! Most will race time trial at a higher rate. And the 1st thing one notices is the reduced load at the catch.... Less time for the flywheel to slow Wolverine L4.... Great at discipline and occupying the mind ...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Did the pyramid session yesterday: 250 1:48.4 500 1:49.8 750 1:49.1 1000 1:48.5 750 1:47.2 500 1:45.9 250 1:36.4 First time I have done that session so was generally aiming sub 1:50. However, I am blasting out the first 100 or so meters, which means I'm actually settling on 1:51ish.. Do you guys tr...

Re: Restricted rating

I see many people posting training sessions with restricted rating (spm). Do they make an significant difference compared to let's say AT sessions where you let your rating depend on the distance/time? I'm aware of the benefits of 30'@20spm, but are there significant benefits of restricting rating ...

Re: Train hard and less or easier and more?

Sprinting on the erg is often 60 spm.... 60spm!!! Woahhhh... Don't think I've ever span the erg that quick! Is that half slide? Pretty sure anything over 40spm would start to fall apart for me... Yes thats half slide, some fast rowers even row 40 over a 2k. But those numbers are the upper end. 40 i...

Re: Train hard and less or easier and more?

Just a couple of thoughts on polarised training and alactate anaerobic Perhaps 10 sessions over 2 weeks makes the maths easier... Well for a thicko like me! As similar to above I often conclude a ut2 row with a few power pulls. Maintaining stroke form. Anaerobic Alactate ... In swimming running cyc...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Hi all. did my 2k test today.Following 4k warm up. Hoping for sub 6:20, no chance went off with too much welly for 1st 500. 1:32.7 1:36.2 1:36.4 1:37.1 33spm, df 135 6:22.5 Pb 10k blood wash out at the end. Maybe not exactly what you where hoping for, but a nice first go, I think you need to get us...

Re: Pete Plan Thread

Sorry i don't know how to highlight your question, and add it to my reply. Anyhow Did 500m test ready for 2k test tomorrow. 1.24.7 41 spm DF 134. According to French rowing Federation that should make a 6:19 2k possible? We'll see. To highlight and quote you can go the post and click on the quote i...

Re: Train hard and less or easier and more?

Thats a very nasty session, if it does not feel horrible you are not trying hard enough :lol: OK - did that session. I was actually 1 second quicker than target pace (makes me think my current 2k might be better than I thought). Wasn't too bad at all (maybe I should have gone quicker) although I wa...

Re: Train hard and less or easier and more?

... based of that 621 sub 7 will be easy... Thanks hjs - certainly doesn't feel easy at the moment :lol: , although I think that's just getting back to regular training. I've been back on the erg for a few months now and I guess I was hoping to have had better progress. I did 50+k last week and hap...

Re: Train hard and less or easier and more?

Thanks for the replies chaps. I should have probably said I did row a number of years ago (6:21 pb) so I get that you have to put the effort in and I know what it's like to be in the 3rd 500 of a 2k, but the majority of that training was long distance on the water - hours and hours... and we didn't...

Re: Train hard and less or easier and more?

Main objective is to get the right side of 7 minutes (Sub7 is first goal, then ultimately I think a 6:40). Psychologically I prefer not to do lots of very hard sessions and happier doing twice as much distance but easier effort. I think Wolverine suggests you shouldn't need to do too many "near dea...

Re: Train hard and less or easier and more?

Wolverine is certainly not less hard, would even say its harder, pp has easier sessions, apart from the interval stuff, wolverine has nothing easy, the longer sessions are low rate L4, or faster L3 stuff. PP is wolverine minus the L4 work. You could tweak both plan if you like ofcourse. For base bui...

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

Third try at a 5km PB today, finished at 21:15, going the right way but still can't break 21. Forth try at 5km PB today. I worked on the theory that if you don't feel like spewing you're not going hard enough. That resulted in a 20:28, 45 seconds better than last week! That time will stand for a wh...
