Re: SkiErg 2 Handles

I don't see why there would be an issue with the current handles. Using a normal grip your palms rest nicely on the "shelf". I have no issues with grip no matter how sweaty I get. I can actually have a pretty loose grip on them until the last part of the stroke. IMO straps would just get in the way....

Re: Skierg pb thread

Kind of dead in here. :cry: Anyway, new PB for 30 minutes. 6808m, 39 spm, 2:12.1. Still around the bottom third for my age group. Really disheartening that I didn't even move up one spot. If it weren't for tracking my times I wouldn't even bother ranking my times for the skierg. It really sucks that...

Re: Any ergers been able to grow their arms?

Since adding the skierg into my weekly rotation I have a noticeable improvement in the chest, triceps, shoulders and lats. Pretty much all the areas that the rower misses.

Re: I have bought my own erg

As an aside, you can really make your erg happy by letting it go outside once in a while. I often let mine out on my balcony. A little bit of breeze can do wonders in keeping you cool. I sometimes let my fan go out too. Helps on hard pieces. 10 months a year for mine :P All 12 months here. :wink:

Re: HR zone / workout question

30 minutes is much too short to worry about burning fat. Your body will use what is easiest to convert to energy (glucose) and that is the glycogen stores in the muscles. Only after that supply dwindles does the body start converting fat into glycogen. This is simply not true. At low intensities, t...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Upped the meters, drop the pace on my 30 minute effort last night. 6767 meters, 38spm. Was a little sore this morning and had to forgo my 0500 6K on the erg. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

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

Been plugging away the last months averaging about 55-60K per week between the rower and skierg. Did a 2K on the rower this morning followed by a 2K on the skierg, felt good despite having a bit of a cold. Decided to try a 2K for real, been at least 2 years, ended up with a current era PB of 7:34.0 ...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Sort of an accidental 30 minute PB last night. Started out kind of slow and easy, saw that with about 6 minutes left my predicted finish was around 6575 meters or so. Last 3 minutes cranked it up to the predicted finish was just over 6600. Finished with 6603 meters. Don't remember the stroke rate. K...
