Re: Expectations!

my arm is getting worse. can barely carry anything with that arm now and am in constant pain pretty much 24/7 :x Practicing slow movements and low tension holds with no weights can be helpful. For example, lift your arms slowly, hold them overhead in an extended position, lower them slowly, relax a...

Re: Subscapular adhesions/dropped shoulder

I hang in increments x 3 or so on gymnastic rings. I got some rings and straps a year ago but haven't put them up yet. How long do you usually hang on them? I highly recommend trying a Skierg, and also agree with the previous comments. Here's a comment from one of the Skierg competitor's profiles, ...

Re: Really off day - Handle Down, or slow down?

I started to think that I really wasn't going to make it all the way at my intended pace You should be training, not straining. Your base pace should be comfortable. Try rowing by feel for awhile. Get some tape and paper or cardboard, cut out a space for the overall time or distance, and cover up t...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Nice improvement, Kini. :!: I did a max low pull pb of 1:52 last Friday, as #7 of 2 sets of 10 low pull attempts with 45s rests. Most of them took me 12 strokes to reach max, but I don't recall if that included the 2 stroke head start. In any case, my start is quite slow. Doing 2 sets of 5 might be ...

Re: Best intervals session for a sub 20m 5k?

Am glad I decided to go with 2:00 recovery as I reckon 1:00 would have been too short and seriously hard work. This thread has helped me to think about recoveries more, :D and I agree with this. My rowerg 5k pace was only 2.4 percent slower than my 2k pace. Yours is 4 percent, and Nick's was 6 perc...

Re: What do you do to keep hunger away?

What do you do to keep hunger away? (Besides eat :D ) Make a plan, and keep on track with your plan. Portion control. Eat at specific times each day, and don't miss any meals. Drink plenty of water, especially first thing in the morning, tapering off through the day. Eat healthy fresh food, veggies...

That 14.0s 100m at 145spm is wrong data from ergdata. Why hasn’t he claimed the wr if it is legit?
Plus he's 181 pounds, and his second fastest was 18.4 at 72spm, so that time is very unlikely.

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

I reach max between 5-7 strokes. I test low pull as a part of a 5-7x100m/1:00r workout. I usually do it in interval 2-3 as I need 1-2 hard intervals before I'm able to really max out(even though I warm up properly at different speeds/rates) Thanks much. I'll try them that way the next time. Congrat...

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

Low pull for the skierg is now 1:11, not exceptional but plenty for everything above 1 minute :wink: Marius, How many strokes does it take you to reach max low pull on the skierg, and how many attempts do you make? It used to take me 7 strokes (10 seconds) on the rowerg, and I'm not sure yet for th...

Re: Skierg pb thread

Steve, I hope you're able to soon overcome the injuries, and be able to exercise as you wish. I managed to take a second off my feeble time for 500 this morning, but was hoping to go somewhat faster. My time was 2:16.1, hardly any faster than the last 1k of my 5k time trial, nor the 500 repeats from...

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

Hjs- I was not talking about 30kgs of fat :lol: Not sure how strong Dan really is but I haven’t been scared of the weights he posts on insta. Your watts per weight are likely much higher, and therefore much better. Did a 2k today with a plan to just dip below 6:30 as I’m doing only sprint training ...
