Could be true, but in rowing itself lightweight 72kg boat and 75 in winter (erging), and no middleweight.-marius- wrote:I believe I saw an announcement some time ago regarding a indoor rowing competition that would test out MWT next year, but do not remember which one.hjs wrote: Top heavyweights are often below 100kg, you are certainly not a middleweight. That class will never come btw.
A sub7 program will be pp like.
At the end of a training week I'm now around 89kg in the morning, but use the weekends to eat my weight up again so I start a new week at 91kg
The SUB7 program might be a PP clone but it is still a change that is welcome. I can do max 5 sessions(and try to limit them to max 1 hour) of rowing per week so I guess there are limitations to what kind of programs I can use. Currently rowing about 50K's a week.
You surely need to eat enough, but weight itself is not holding you down, lightweight wr is 5.56. And years ago a guy pulled 6.02 at 69 kg.
You are doing fine atm, I only try to tell you, you could do very well. But for that extra time is needed. If you can,t train more you can,t. Enjoy and learn. See how you end up this winter and after that you could always see what you can do. This is not the time to make big changes. You improve still rapidly, so it works, these are the newby early gains. But gains are gains!
