Re: Polar OH1 heart rate monitor and PM5

Great article that you provided Greg!! I purchased the OH1 and have successfully used it with my rower and BikeErg in conjunction with my iPhone and both the ErgData app as well as the Polar Beat app. I’ve compared accuracy with my old heart straps and there is excellent correlation. Overall I’m ver...

BikeErg Ranked Workouts

Hello, I have just purchased a BikeErg and have completed a couple of workouts (awesome product by the way!). Any thoughts if it might it be possible to add a 10 km distance to the ranked workout list? It seems to be an awfully big gap between 4km and 40km ... A 10km would map well with the 5km rowi...

Re: do we need a heart rate monitor for sure while rowing?

Greg,
Were you able to compare your OH1 to a chest strap (something like the Polar H10)?

I'm trying to decide between the Polar H10 or the OH1 as my wrist base Garmin Vivoactive 3 performs very poorly while rowing …

Thanks in advance,
Gary

Re: Polar OH1 heart rate monitor and PM5

Do you find the OH1 to be accurate? I've been using my Garmin VivoActive 3 but it is very unreliable for rowing. It takes forever for my heart rate to rise on the watch even though I know it is pounding!! Thus I'm trying to decide between the Polar H10 strap or this Polar OH1 monitor. Thanks in adva...

Mixed Rower / BikeErg Training Plan?

I have a Model D rower which I really like and have just purchased a BikeErg. I am hoping to use both to improve my fitness level and lose 25 lbs. Can anyone point me to a general training plan that mixes both devices? Ie. row one day, bike another ... Could I use the beginner Pete training plan but...

Re: Buy a BikeErg now or wait for new version?

I picked up my BikeErg today! Looking forward to setting it up and starting to use it this week. I hope I can find some beginner training plans in these forums to ease into things.

Buy a BikeErg now or wait for new version?

I would like to purchase a BikeErg to complement my Model C rower.
It seems the BikeErg was released about a year and a half ago. Any guesses when an updated version will be released?
Should I buy now or wait a few months for a possible new version?

Thanks in advance,
Gary

Re: Rowing Modification - Toe Surgery

Thanks for the suggestions! I’ll try wrapping a towel around the rail as a front stop as suggested and see how that goes. I’m not particularly concerned about power / pace time as I just want to be able to get some basic exercise in during this recovery period and the front stop idea might do the tr...

Rowing Modification - Toe Surgery

Hello, I have been a very happy user of my Model D rower for many years - awesome piece of equipment!! I just had surgery on my big toe / right foot and can’t bend the toe for several weeks. Is there a way to still use my rower during this time? When I row, my feet always bend when the heels comes o...
