Re: Newbie starting out

The thing i really like about all of this is you're not brainwashed into solely "how far and fast can i go" on this machine until i fall off and almost die. And you're focusing on the more important thing as a noob, that being the technique!!! And you notice the flaws in your stroke that need work w...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First ever 45 minute SS row. Probably the longest row I've done yet. Absolutely hated this. Bored. Sweat in my eyes. Sweaty grip. Sore butt. Hard to stay on the right pace/stroke rate. Generally pretty miserable. Try the hour row... thats when it really gets interesting :D I remember my last one, t...

So it looks, could start a bit faster. But sub 7 it is! :D
Agree with Henry. Loads left at the end to crank the pace up by that much!!!

But sub 7 is not to be sniffed at... i couldn't do that. Congrats!!!!

Re: Returning from erg break

It's just because you've been away from it for a while. I remember when i had to take almost a month off the erg with injury, then when i came back to the erg it felt like i was trying to pull a truck :lol: Only rowing around 110df then as well. If you were doing weights, body weight training stuff,...

If i erg, then have 2-3 day break between sessions, i come back and 9 times out of 10 i feel good for it, and my fitness remains stable. ...
