Thanks, guys. I did PR, with a 6:49.7. Actually wasn't a horribly painful piece (compared to other 2k's), though I was pretty nauseous for a few hours afterwards. Not a big PR by any means, but I'm glad to know I didn't get any slower over the winter. Andy, how'd your 2k go on Friday?
Monday: 5x750--1:42 avg. Tuesday: Rigged eights; rowed on the water Tonight: 8x500--1:38 avg. Tomorrow: Back on the water Friday: 2k
Yeah, I'm interested.
Maybe a blond/light brown horn.

Monday, we did 10 min. erg (4'@22, 3'@24, 2'@26, 1'@28), 10 min. stairs, 10 min. erg again, 10 min. stairs again. Went 1:49.9 on the first erg piece, 1:49.7 on the second and passed a lot of guys on the stairs....
Did 12x1:00 yesterday. Averaged a 1:39.5, felt pretty good about that. Today, ran up the 80 flights of the Aon Center in Chicago with some other crew guys for a charity event.
bach, that workout sounds pretty brutal. Where do you go to school? Anyway, rowing (and only rowing) will give you massive quads and forearms, and pretty big lats. That said, most of the really big rowers do lift outside of crew. While pecs, delts, etc. aren't actively used in pulling the oar/erg chain, it definitely helps to have a big chest so that you've got some weight to throw around behind the erg handle.

I would think that decreasing bodyfat would end up helping with cardio, making the boat a little lighter, etc. Anyway, I really just want to get leaner, lose any noticeable excess bodyfat, and develop some good muscle definition. If that happens at, say, 12% or 14%, I'll be...

My guys went on to win Dad Vail 2x in the V8+. 6:17.8 in the 2k was PR. Bought an erg after college, rowing the single now. Pretty awesome to see so many...
