Revival! I am a time poor family man with some weights (dumbbells, bar, bench) in the cellar and a free 30 minutes in the evening to do what I can. I am aiming for a more athletic build and no hugeness, if that was even possible. I seem to focus on arms, chest, shoulders and back. I occasionally do some cardio intervals on my rowing machine, but that is only about 5-10% of my workouts. This is what I do, what should I keep and what should I change? Workout 1 - All...
Surprised to hear there is no comparison available, but I guess that reflects the lack of me easily finding anything via Google. I'm not sure where I will get access to a C2 machine before the event to try it out. I used to train on them, but have not for a few years now. For the event in *December* I'm training to a C2 training plan focused on a 2k. Doing the work, so hopefully I won't embarrass myself at the comp.
I use my waterrower at least three, usually more times a week, always in the morning about 6am before my wife and kid wake up. Now I'm training for an indoor rowing event in December, and what happens, kid starts a new sleeping pattern that means she wakes up early, just at the time I would be starting my training. Gah! I'll try tonight, but it just feels like I have forgotten to do something today, and I'm not sure how it will feel doing 10*1min pieces @ 85-95% Max HR...
Hello. I've posted before about my decision to go for a Waterrower over a C2 but now I wonder how comparative the timed/distance results are between machines. I will be taking part in an Indoor rowing championship in November that will be held on C2 machines. This morning I pulled a 6.20.5 2K on my WR with 16L in the tank. How would that compare on a C2 machine? What is the 16L in C2 Damper level terms? Can anyone comment on these questions? Thanks

Hello. BobD here, long time lurker, first time poster. I've been patiently watching and trying to learn and put into practice elements of what I see, albeit on a restricted budget. Here's what I was wearing today. Apologies for the poor quality bbry pics A day that I tied my first ever double four in hand. How did I do, what should I work on here? Any pointers will be very much appreciated. Thankyouplease
30 min steady state today. 20SPM, HR ~140, splits between 2.00 and 2.10. Felt good. A solid piece, not all out by any means, but I'm happy with it. Been training every day this week as I have a week off and home alone. Back to work next week means a return to 6am sessions and more effort required to find the time. Happy rowing/erging... B
