Re: Types of posters

I think you should remember that "gob" means something way different over here in the UK. It's a mild insult. I'm assuming you intended it to mean "good old boy" or Colonel Tom as we call him. As in (going purely on memory here): "Shut your festering gob, you tit. You toffee-nosed, malodorous perve...

Re: How do I program the workout of the day?

Another thing for the OP to consider as she familiarizes herself with the rower and the PM: Don't fixate only on the sequence of buttons you have to push in a given order to duplicate a predefined workout - try to also step back and see the logic of the various menus and how they're used to program ...

Re: Types of posters

I’m going to be optimistic and attribute most of the super-basic newbie questions that have been asked (and answered) ad nauseam, and could have been solved by 10 seconds of searching by the OP, to new users who are somewhat excited that they’ve found a forum to discuss a new toy, so without thinkin...

Re: A new owner, and quick intro

I've updated the monitor firmware and made sure the chain is lubed and all the bolts are tight. Anything else I need to look out for? Welcome to the forum. : ) You may want to check the flywheel area and give it a quick cleaning - it isn't difficult. If there are balance weights on the flywheel be ...

Re: what a wallpaper it would be

What a great picture. That image reminds me of something related to cycling: Bicycling is my "true love" but lately, for a variety of reasons, I've been erging a lot more than cycling. However, I've never done any OTW rowing. One of my very favorite types moments on a bike is when I'm riding a new-t...

Re: Pushup Challenge - the experiments continueadvice please

Sounds like a good plan.

I'd say the biggest thing is to not do too much, to the point where you begin to have soreness issues that just don't go away, and even get worse. That would definitely be a message from you body that it isn't happy.

Have fun!

Re: New member saying hello

Welcome to the forum, Dan. You won't regret the C2 erg, and it will give both you and your wife many, many years of faithful service. The C2 site has tons of information on proper rowing technique (which may not be an issue for you, given your background), sample workouts and how to program them int...

Re: Soon to be New owner

Agree with the box fan thing instead of a C-Breeze. I have a C-B, and you're better off with a fan.

Re: PM5 stopping final interval a few seconds early

I don't have a PM5 on my Model C, but I bet at least some of the responses to your question will be "Have you downloaded the latest version of the firmware to your PM?"

Re: Pushup 21 day Challenge - advice please

One comment is that the fact that your peak HR when doing the sets of 10 did not continue to rise and the HR low valleys continued to drop means that x10 for that rest schedule is easily within your cardio capability. If the peaks (and valleys) had continued to climb, then you'd be working your card...

https://nyti.ms/2XCNmN5 CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — The photographs are hardly Instagram-worthy, with their retro rowing machines and dull home-gym-looking backdrops.
