Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

First time back on the erg today after 7 days off. But, i've been working a lot on my weight training in that time!!! I Simply wanted to do a sub 20min 5k, it's been a while. Also, something i seen Carl mention in another thread about him not being able to get any pace @ df110. I myself usually work...

Why is the Drag Factor all over the place ? That is weird.
I was wondering the same thing :?

The 30min row @ df 205 r21 is very odd compared with the rest, especially.

Re: Rowing or Strength first in a given workout session?

I used to row first (priority) Then do strength work after... but eventually, it left me knackered and burn't out, doing it all in the same day.

Now, i do my strength training on separate days from my rowing days. I find this a much better way to do it!!!

Re: New Rower

Rowing at lower rates (18-22) will feel strange to start with so slow it down over a number of weeks (2-4 weeks should be about right), and drop it by 1 or 2 strokes a week. It will feel hard as you're trying to go the same pace with less strokes so you need to use more power for each stroke: anoth...

Re: Damper settings / drag factor question

I've toyed about with DF settings, (never on a max df though) can't say i seen any improvement in my numbers. It was more just the feel thing i noticed.

Re: Damper settings / drag factor question

Probably won't make any difference, regardless of what the DF setting is.

Lower df simply means the indoor rower feels like a sleek racing shell, and at the higher df numbers, the indoor rower feels like a slow row boat.

Has had a bit of a hard life though and done 50 to 60 million metres, probably 90% of them outdoors.
Great advertisement for C2 durability :D

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Did 5 minutes on the C2 today for the first time in over a month. The mid back injury was a lot worse than I originally thought. Been doing the AD Pro (Assault Bike) for over a month because every time I've tried to row it aggravated the back. Finally got moved into my new house in AZ up near the m...

21,097, HM 1:44.4 1:13.27.5 25 spm Wow, just wow - that's impressive! I was happy to hold in the 1:44s for my most recent 5K PB - the idea of keeping that pace for over 4 times as long is just mind blowing. I'd be happy to keep that pace for 6' 500m intervals :lol: Yeah, just wow on that HM. Congra...
