Re: Fast 500m row time -1.40minute HELP

Thanks for the tips! Do you mean with 1-4'R the minutes of rest?. Very helpfull, I will watch the video's, and write the intervals down. Yes the intervals can be done with those rests - the longer rests mean you can go harder each interval If you have 8 months to train for this then I agree with th...

Re: Fast 500m row time -1.40minute HELP

You've got plenty of time, so it wouldn't be unreasonable to try to gain a few kgs of muscle. You can definitely do it without but it might be a bit easier if you're heavier. For training I echo what everyone else said - do short hard sprint intervals such as 30s off 1-2 minutes rest and perhaps lo...

Re: Fast 500m row time -1.40minute HELP

Police academy. So you are quite young, but past your teen years, I assume. Male? If so, I will claim that you don't need any specific 500 meter training at all. You will easily reach your target with a little amount of general fitness rowing with focus on getting enough energy in each stroke. Actu...

Re: Fast 500m row time -1.40minute HELP

No, too many all out efforts will overstress you. When is your exam? Depending on when it is and what else you train I won't do more than 1-2 per month at 100%, but you can do 90% efforts pretty often, they are also hard and help you in many ways, esp. getting mentally adapted to the distance and d...

Re: Fast 500m row time -1.40minute HELP

The drag factor must be between 6-10. Not sure if I can use weights on the front. Thanks for the tips! So to get better, i just need to race 500m every time.. and that will improve my time? No you shouldn't just do 500m - in fact don't need to do many of them. It depends on how long you have to pre...

Re: Fast 500m row time -1.40minute HELP

It would be useful to know how this exam takes place (and when): - can you use any drag factor you want (there are tests where drag is predetermined)? If not you should work with the drag you have to use at this exam. - can you put weights on the front of the erg (or can someone stand on it) to pre...

Re: Fast 500m row time -1.40minute HELP

This was shared a few weeks ago (originally in quite an old thread). I was going to give it a crack, but a minor injury has stopped me doing flat out stuff for now. Will be interested in your results if you give it a go. I assume the two speed workouts are in addition to steady state stuff, rather ...
