Re: Used SkiErg with 75,000 meters, 3 years old

Total newbie here looking to buy a used SkiErg... Is this a a small amount of use? By my estimate it seems hardly used. Also, have there been any updates in the last 3 years? i.e. should I seek out a newer model because of some new features? When purchasing a used SkiErg is there anything I should ...

He's doing 15km rows at 34 spm!
I know, think thats a record, never seen that before. :D

But he also got a 153 5k, so pace is already pretty ok, the stroke is very alternative, that why I said, have a look how others use the machine.

Re: Mutliple SkiErg Users on PM5

Hello everyone! I just purchased a SkiErg. My wife and I are both planning to use it. Is there a way to "log in" to the PM5 or some way to separate her exercise data from my exercise data? Thanks! You can both open a concept2 logbook and both use ergdata (or an other app) on a foon. Connect your pe...

Re: advice needed for first indoor rowing competition

Re taper, do less in the last week, but keep a few short, sharp sessions in. Be fresh op D day. Food, taper down on fiber, needing to “go” is sometimes not so easy. Toilets are often busy. Races, have done such a combi often. If you do the 2k full on, 2 hours is not enough to fully recover, expect 3...

Re: Am I sick??? shocked by my numbers

On a different not, when you just walk, what hf do you get then?

And, how do feel when you row? If you did not see a hf reading would you not easily put in more effort?

Re: Am I sick??? shocked by my numbers

Hf 100 is extremely carefull :wink: Use HRR, for your cap, and use 70%. Top athletes use lactate testing, and that will be lots higher than 60%. There aerobic cap can be 80/85% in very aerobic cases. Re max, thats not to calculate. Max is simply max. For now just use that 160 ish cap, but later on, ...

Re: High school girl rower- a question

Can’t say much, only that some people are sooner fully grown. And, important, sport is very much about talent, no training can compensate talent. 2 people can work just as hard, but get very different results. While I do agree with the body composition argument for natural plateaus in sport and fit...

Re: Calisthenics HR vs Rowing HR

I see no data of what you actually do on the rower. Its relative easy to row from very easy to getting close to passing out. Its simply how much effort you put it.
