I think the 5k is the more impressive of the two as i find that the skierg lends itself better to sprinting (your WRs notwithstanding).
Bit of a fly and die from James there
Interesting battle coming up on the 2k. Think my money will be on Jason.
To be honoust, I can’t relate to any of those times. Wr in rowing I find more or less understandable, skierg records not.
I don’t think the machine is suited to any direction. Do think having high upperbody power is very usefull, in rowing you can get away with being very fit.
A guy like James, fair is fair, is not super fit, but can benchpress 200kg. Jason won’t match that, but is still pretty strong.
There is third man in the game. Freddy Smulter, former Powerlifter, still has a bizar benchpress, 3/4 in de week he does 200kg sets, max still around 270kg. His rom is short
181 135/40 kg ish. Certainly not all muscle but still. He has a 6.06 2k, relative newby. Started with zero aerobic fitness. Expect him also to go sub 6.
Again, skierg is strange beast, the average guy/girl is much better suited to row.
