Re: 500m Row Times

so i gave the 500m row a shot today. came up with a time of 1:47 which only 4 seconds off my pr & i haven't done them in a year. i used the resistance setting of 8. i had been using 6 for 500m before but felt i could utilize my strength more with a slower pace.

Re: 500m Row Times

My PB is 1:25, 1:17 is absolutely sick man! I may have to try again soon...nothing makes me more nervous though.

Re: 500m Row Times

39 strides per minute
Very interesting!!


I always limited my strides and focused on harder pulls instead, I guess I should go harder FASTER.

I will get my time done soon!

1:17 is very impressive

Re: 500m Row Times

My PR is 1:44, which I haven't tried to beat yet.

I was thinking about rowing some 250m intervals. I like the 30 second idea. I've taken to counting strokes to get me through because rowing just hurts so much.

Re: 500m Row Times

I just got to the computer to watch the video. Sick time, and that's a sweet vid for sure.

Re: 500m Row Times

I've never rowed longer than 30 secs, until that 4x500m row wod came up the other day. So I did it after my press workout, with a break of course, and I pulled a 1:36. Very juiced

Re: 500m Row Times

Rowed earlier this evening hit a 1:25 again...I think I can definitely do better than that, I'll try again next month sometime. I am out of shape and I seriously was delirious for a good 8 minutes after that row...500m sprints are nasty.

Re: 500m Row Times

Ugh, my PR is 1:53. I never row so it'll stay at 1:53 for quite some time, lol.
