what kind of shoes do you guys wear when squatting heavy weights?

I think I used to row a 2k at a 29-30 for the body and 31-32 at the sprint (~400m to go). thx. i wanna be sub 6:30 by the end of the summer. we'll see. how far do you guys lay back and how high do you pull the handle when erging? i've seen some good...

HOO-RAH. shiiiet. i've never done 1500 but that sounds fast. we had a race today, i was in a 4+ and we got 7:36. i don't think that's very good.

Perhaps I just have a weak heart... nice splits. the 5k's were pretty easy. i'm adding more volume/intensity each week unless it doesn't feel right (e.g., instead of this week's 2x5k @ 2:00, next week i'll do 2x6k at 1:55 or...
