Re: C2 resistence question

Most CFers have a tendency to just kick it up to 10, however I worked with a CF coach who was a collegiate rower and he was a big advocate of working in the 5-6 range. 10 seems harder, so CFers think they're getting the most intense workout that way, but really a lower setting just means you're going to have a higher stroke rate, therefore covering the same distance as you would at 10 (when your watts/stroke is going to be much higher). At least that's my primitive understanding.
