Work on your racing start (3/4-1/2-full) at your current drag factor or lower. Adapt to higher df in isolation from these windups. Combine only after a period of conditioning, thereby reducing risk of injury. Note that C2Jon and Lindsay H. offer similar advice earlier in case there's a reward available to first responders.

If you’re normally at around 120 then yes I’d say 170 would be about right for a 500 PB attempt.

I also found that by repeating the attempt every few days I improved it a little each time so good luck with working it down over a series of them
I'm sure Rod means well but combining this advice with your very limited use of the rower is a recipe for injuries. I'll suggest again that you put the short stuff aside and work on the foundation first. C2JonW

I agree c2jonw, I was forgetting how new he is so yes, maybe not a good idea to be going flat out just yet and build it up a bit first.
