Good luck - rowing is a great way to improve your overall fitness.
It's also a great activity in general... well, at least thats what i think :)

Re: Technique Critique

Most has been covered above... but i'll add further. The rowing stroke should be a natural looking movement once it's learned, and then executed properly. This doesn't look at all natural however, some things you have going on work to a point, and you're likely getting a workout, but it's a weak str...

Re: Training slump... it finally happened to me... :(

After 2 1/2 years of solid, sustained effort on the erg I've finally hit a big slump that has lasted a couple of months now. Low motivation, lots of excuses, dust collecting on my erg. I've lost focus on what to try and accomplish. In the meantime, I've been doing some weight training about once a ...

Re: Interval workout

15 seconds is your rest intervals! Don't think you can program 2 different rest interval settings on a workout.

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

2k total time 7.34.7 1.53.6/500m 26s/m One of my targets for this year was 7.40, so smashed that. :D Didn't think I'd be able to finish at about 500m to go, but suddenly there was only 300m left, which felt manageable. Counted down the last 30 strokes. Bleurgh. Well done, Max. Last 500 certainly ca...

Re: [In]decent Intervals

Had a bit of a medical setback: several early-morning seizures, basically the same sort that I had to deal with around Christmastime and presumably from the same cause. The thing is, no one is quite sure what's triggering them. I still think it's some combination of hypoglycemia and obstructive sle...
