Cool.

Silly detail, but what's the story on the color of the erg?

Edit: I guessed that it might be related to Olympic medal(s) he's won, Googled him, and found that that was likely the reason for the color. (or maybe his World Championship gold medals)

Glenn I completely agree.

Are there many other sports where you have one its greatest athletes of all time creating this sort of content?

Erging obviously lends itself to this by the nature of the workouts and numbers, but the exposure here to someone with Eric Murray's experience and ability, particularly with such an approachable style and setting is pretty great.

I enjoy watching how simple the mechanics of his stroke are ... no overreaching at the catch, nothing artificial about the layback, simple sequencing. Just a lot of power very smoothly applied.

Me and my buddy were saying the same thing about his consistency. That chain comes back to the same spot on the same line regardless of rate. And it’s a straight quick line! I also love that he has to psyche himself up for the erg just like we do. His commentary too is refreshing

Not the world record and obviously not even his best but I assume if Concept2 had a 'nudged by goat during' record category this would be a strong contender!

Yeah, this came up over on the Reddit Rowing sub! I may never be that fast but I'd be damn proud to get my form and breathing control anywhere near that. (trying to find a local coach this winter has been tough)

Good to see him giving back to the erg community.
