Understanding the Console

Post by hakmed » January 8th, 2019, 9:07 am

I was wondering whether anyone could assist me in understanding the console of my new and the very first rowing machine. I recently bought a Magnetic Rower from RogerBlack Fitness. The machine comes with a total of 12 programs (4 of which is for custom).

There are 2 parts that I am struggling in understanding:

1) I am currently getting around 1M (meter) per stroke. Based on the data I have found online this surely cannot be accurate. Given that 50M take just under 3 minutes with 18 SPM, it would take me 2 hours to row 2k according to this machine. Has anyone ever come across an issue like this?
2) This might be a general exercice machinery related; what do the blocks of squares in the grid at the bottom half of the console represent? Depending on the program selected they go in to all sorts of shapes with numers written on the edges.


Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

This is a CONCEPT2 forum (owned and run by them). So we can't help with Brand-X rowing machines.
