Re: Year 35

I like your note, Gabe... a lot. My wife and I have found a way that works (and has worked) for us to eat more healthy, to lose some weight, and for me to vastly improve my lipid profile (and this formula includes plenty of exercise of course). But there are many ways to ‘skin the cat’ as they say.....

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Re-rowed the 5/4/3/2/1 @ 18/20/22/24/26 rate ladder this morning. It was all going to plan until the last 1km when my HR jumped from 165 to over 200 and it stayed there was the rest of the row. I did feel like my HR seemed irregular at the point, thumping in my chest and I didn't feel too great so ...

Re: Increasing quota size in phpBB

Because Concept2 are a rowing/skiing/biking ergo company not a media host. It costs money to run this forum and extra disk space will cost extra. You wouldn't want advertising on here to fund extra space to satisfy your ego. Wow, you’ve really got a lot of nerve. I simply ask you to elaborate on wh...

Re: Increasing quota size in phpBB

It's not going to change. Put your stuff on a sharing site, post a link here. For photos I use https://imgur.com/ Ok, I get that... can you at least elaborate on why? Is it to conserve backend storage space, save money, or maybe both? One of the reasons why I prefer to handle these attachments on t...

Re: New member, seeking feedback

Hey guys- my Garmin HRM1G arrived the other day and I already had a chance to try it out on the rower. Really like it so far... I finally have visibility into my heart rate action during my sessions, and now have this info on my workout graphs as well. So far, so good- thanks much for all of the goo...

Increasing quota size in phpBB

Question for phpBB admins- I’m a fairly new member here and have been having problems adding attachments to my posts (i.e. ‘the board attachment quota has been reached’). I’ve seen a few threads already on this same issue, but the recommendation by folks here was to use external sites to host the at...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I did another string of tabata workouts yesterday (a workout I originally discovered on a British Rowing video a few weeks back)- and this time, I had my new HRM on to give me nice (accurate) visibility as to what my heart was doing throughout the session. My HR was actually higher than I expected, ...

Re: Year 35

Thank you, Rowenfuul! I know I need to do better about food intake, and have been mostly better about it since the new year started. I know that rowing is helping as I'm starting to see some changes in my body shape. My legs are getting smaller, and I'm probably going need to punch a new hole in my...

Re: NEW VIDEO! - My 1K race

Yep, just checked out the video... awesome job, Lance! Really liked that 1:22 low pull, the way you jumped on the start, and the fact that they had to brace your rower. Some hard work going on there... enjoyed watching it.

Re: Hello to all & looking for a bit of advice.

Dean- I see you got an even better time with your 500m- good job! I have to chime-in on your comment about the rower... I am really having some fun with it these days too (and for the last year I’ve been rowing). I love the fact that you can get both cardio as well as strength training on this machi...

Re: Hello to all & looking for a bit of advice.

Hello all, I had a go on the concept2 rower a few days ago at my gym.just used to ignore it for years so thought I would give it a go. I went for a 500m distance row and got 1:31 dead. (My legs also felt dead after).I used damper setting 10. I have a training and bodybuilding background but am doin...

Re: Year 35

Hi canglem- I just saw this thread and read your original post... and I felt compelled to send you a note on it. I’m 65 yrs old at this point and much more healthy and lighter in weight than I was in late 2018. In late 2018, I had a heart attack that landed me in the hospital (with a stent later ins...

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

Worked out today and managed new PB’s in both total rowing time and distance covered: total time: 18:30, total distance: 3941m. Workout consisted of a warmup (4min row at various SPM), followed by a Tabata work session (10s rest, 20s hard, 4 passes). I did two of these warmups and Tabata work sessi...

Re: New member, seeking feedback

Wow- thanks to everyone for getting back to me with all of the HRM info. I did some searching over the last day or so, and I think I’ve narrowed down my choice to either the Garmin HRM1G (if I can still find them new anywhere), or the Wahoo TICKR which I guess is readily available. Would really lik...
