Re: Skierg vs running times

Sorry for offtopic but can I ask how the skierg pace compares to rowing?
I would presume rowing on the concept2 should be easier to get a lower 500m time andhigher SPM

SkiErg vs Row for bad backs

Hi
Im thinking of getting a skierg but worried about back pains
Rowing bothers my back and causes pins and needles in my legs. My friend/trainer insists to get one and work on form but does the Skierg put less pressure on ur back?
