Re: Muscle Gain as a Lightweight

... I encourage folks who want to put on muscle mass to lift 3-4 times a week, and row on days you don't lift. More common would be rowing hard 2-3 times/week and stacking 2 days of lifting on the same days as hard rowing . Then filling in one or two rest days and several long rows each week. This ...

Re: Zone 4 everytime

Hey, With the new ErgData app i am figuring out that i am always in my zone 4 of HR.

I tried to keep zone 3, but i can’t produce anything ans i feel like it’s a useless training fo...

Re: First (and Failed) HM Attempt

You could watch TV and do a HM if you did your splits 10 seconds slower. You would have died way sooner with 10 second faster splits. Your first HM had too aggressive a pace. Everyone does that on one piece or another, and handle down is not a bad solution. You are ready for you next HM attempt when...

Thank you for posting. I have a (2019 Release) 10" fire and was going to try the same steps. Since they didn't work for you I'll wait a bit longer before trying it.

Re: Getting back to fitness and long steady distance

My question is how much? I can row 3k at 3.15 pace with HR peaking at 114 and I'm not out of breath when I'm finished and I feel good. .I'm conscious of not over doing it. I have often been jumping on the erg 4 to five times per day and doing 1000m steady, just to keep moving. Not many people own u...

Interesting that a moderator can remove her comment following the appearance of a subsequent comment but same impossible for the rank and file.🤭
Grin. I'm glad the mods have the power. They do a great job pruning away the spam. (when was the last time you saw anything cringe on this forum).

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

I have lifted on and off over the years but never enough to get a good squat due to hip, and consequently back issues. I think that this pace was all down to the 'audience effect' and finding some inner strength to not let myself down and having people roaring me on. I'm usually on my own, with onl...

.. I managed to get under 1:20 for the one minute thrash..
nice. You lift, or is the power all coming from rowing ? Under 1:20 (680 watts) is pretty strong. If lifting, what sort of leg press weight or squat weight do you use ?

Re: Single leg rowing

I have patellofemoral arthritis in one knee after a reconstruction so get crepitus/inflammation if I go about bending the knee more than 20 degrees. You likely got physical therapy after the reconstruction. Was the therapist any good? If so talk to them. If not get a referral for a new therapist fr...

Re: Drag Factor Changes During Workout

The data for each workout includes the drag factor.....this is consistently around 116-119, despite showing 133 on the "display drag factor screen". Neat. You are setting drag factor correctly using the only procedure. Good. Downloaded workouts can't change the drag factor. Your drag factor is 133 ...

Now Push away from the flywheels using only your legs. Nothing else changes. Keep leaning toward fkywheel, keep arms straight. Keep the ha...
