Re: Heart rate concern

Thanks for the response. I felt nothing with the jump up spike. If I didn’t have a graph to look at I wouldn’t have even realised. Do you ever measure your heart rate by counting beats while looking at a watch? I usually do that when I don't trust my heart rate sensor. Of course, you can't count th...

Re: SPM - strategy

Thanks "robbie", over time - would I see an increase in my distance because I'm pulling harder? If you pull harder at the same stroke rate, you will immediately see your pace becoming faster. You will cover more distance in the same time. And you don't need to increase the resistance to do this. Yo...

Re: Where are my gains?

I think there may be some confusion here on the expected outcome of low intensity base training. It is not supposed to prepare you for (short) races. It is supposed to build a foundation. If you never build anything on top of that foundation, well, then you have a good looking foundation and nothing...

Re: Where are my gains?

What I am writing now may be obvious, but right now it is not obvious to me if it is obvious to you - so here goes...: What are you keeping constant, and what are you trying to change? If you row with a target stroke rate and a target pace or power, your stroke energy is given and can't change. A lo...

Re: Intro and noob (newb) question: weak push from legs?

ps: I haven't seen this noted, but at the catch there is a slight 'hitch' in the chain before it engages; is this just the clutch? No, it is you. You need to catch up with the velocity of the still spinning wheel, before the clutch can engage. It will take some fractions of a second to accelerate y...

Another problem appears to be it can only remember 1 and I have 3 belts.
Same here. So I make sure to use the same belt every time.

Hitting Connect for every row is not acceptable in 2020.

Re: Save HR bluetooth/ANT+ connection in PM5

ErgData can also remember the heart rate sensor.

But it is a little finicky - it works most of the time for me, but sometimes it doesn't. I think it has something to do with the order of turning on the PM and ErgData, but I have never really figured it out.

Re: Maximum intensity before machine failure

Am I doing something wrong here? Yes, you are doing something wrong. Very wrong, actually: You are setting the efficiency of the human body to 100%. C2 sets the efficiency of the human body to 25%. And then they slap on another 300 kcal/hour to cover the muscle work, which is not getting into the h...

Re: Maximum intensity before machine failure

One user particularly likes to row at vigorous intensity for a minute or so, clocking 1700-1800 Cal/hour Erhh... that is a pace around 1:33 minutes/500 meter, equal to less than 440 watt. Your other users are so slow, that this appears extraordinary to you? Some people are above 1000 watt on these ...

Re: SkiErg Calorimetry

No difference, the same pace on both ergs gives the same calories. Any idea how C2 determined this? My guess would be rough guesswork. I can tell you how the calculation works on the RowErg: Your measured energy on the erg is first divided by an assumed metabolic efficiency of exactly 25% to find t...

Re: Trying to understand calorie burned

First of all: You can burn a lot of calories by walking every day. Andy you will actually also build a lot of fitness in the process. I know, because I did that two years ago. However, there is one thing you should know about calorie information from recorded exercises: These calories usually includ...

Re: Ergdata not syncing

Clearly on my pm5 I'm looking at my summary and I've been rowing in April May June July Why are you not looking in the log in your ErgData app? That is the relevant log to log at, since it is the data from that log, which will be synced. If the sessions are not in that log, they will not be synced.

so questions are age, steady state stroke rate and all out stroke rate.

lead to lower Target Heart Rates (i.e. less fit).
Could you elaborate on your assumption that a lower target heart rate indicates lower fitness?

Re: A Few Weeks Into My Journey

Some days I will sit down and do 500 meter sprints with 2 minute rest and try to do 14-20 sets. I can now do up to about 15 sets under 1:48 split and will just keep working on that and try to keep moving it down. No wonder that you can't control your hunger. With this kind of training, you will dep...
