Shins short of vertical...backs opening early....poor sequencing....IQ? Non-existent. Future Presidential candidates.

Re: Need lower drag factor

Just drape a towel over the fan assembly. Cheap, easy & on/off quicker than a New York second.

Re: 1ST TIME/IS MY FORM CORRECT?

Elbow's, outside of knees, between knees, or above knees? There is one gent that rows and he told me between knees. Oh, oh.....that guy strikes again. He's the one with the Bugs Bunny headband, short shorts & chartreuse leg warmers. Always put the damper on 10 & takes meth before his workout to mak...

Re: Effects of the drag factor on performance and on physiological parameters

This was very interesting. I did not read the source materials, just your summary. Would the following conclusions that would apply to my situation (I consider myself in the active group) be correct: 1. higher DF equals higher watts vs lower DF, hence faster splits. 2. higher DF equals lower HR at ...

Hopefully, OP is squared away on what it is he is supposed to be trying to accomplish. Henry's and others' well articulated responses should clear up any misunderstanding.

Re: 1ST TIME/IS MY FORM CORRECT?

No need to stress about technique. All of us here, even the very best, have faults in our stroke. The best we can do is seek to improve on 1, maybe 2 things at a time. Good news for you is, you have a lot of areas to improve, which will mean free speed & power down the road. Also, don't try to compa...

Re: 1ST TIME/IS MY FORM CORRECT?

Agree with Mark on the usefulness of mirrors. Another great help, if you have them available, is the use of slides or a dynamic. Forces you to have proper sequencing to keep you from banging off the front & rear stops.

Re: Launching a newb- please critique

Thanks for the insights, it is much appreciated. I am learning that rowing is not a difficult thing to do in a casual manner, but go beyond the yanking and cranking and you can find yourself with a bit of a learning curve. Nuthin' wrong with yankin' n crankin'. Just don't get hurt. Good technique k...

Re: 1 month in and no change... suggestions?

Great to hear you're making progress! Fasted cardio works for me personally, but if you absolutely hate it, I would advise you not to. Find some other way to restrict your calories that you find more enjoyable. Losing weight is hard work. No sense in making it more odious. At a certain level, you ha...
