If so, then you are not going at 2k plus 5. That reference being is used for a real max effort. Absolute pace does not matter so much. A max effort is a max effort, nomatter what pace.
Of course by definition neither a 2k pace, nor a 2k + 5 pace can be a max effort. Clearly 2k+5 is slower than 2k, so that's not max. A 2k effort (at least for me) can't be a max effort either, because I can't sustain my true "give it all you got" max effort for that long.
As far as whether or not I am truly rowing at 2k+5, since I know approximately what my best 2k effort would be right now (last time I did a test was over six months ago) I have a pretty good feel for what my 2k + 5 pace would be.
Like the others said. A max effort clearly is a max effort for that given distance. So a max 2k, is the fastest you can. If you never tested a 2k you can,t use the frase 2k plus... cause you don,t know. But you did test so you do.
So 2k plus 5 certainly can be max, but simply over a longer timeframe. And since rowing is about going over a certain distance, doing a max effort means going as fast as you can.
A low pull is used for max effort over 1 stroke.
For shorter intervals 2k plus 5 is very doable btw and if you combine it with other stuff can,t see a reason why you should not.
Strange discussion this becomes, looks we talk about things we both clearly know
Re the looking, I bet 95% plus if the people look at the pm, its simply there.
