i have noticed over past workouts that when i sub the sdhp for rowing i am not able to make it through the rxd amount. an example being the 500 m row in today's wod. in past wod's when there was a rowing machine avaliable, or in the past when i have used rowing machines i have never had a problem of keeping a solid 2min 500m pace. also i can usually continue on for another four or more 500m without any real decrease in performance.

however today and in the past when i have tried to do i.e. 50 or 75 sdhp i usually have to break it up; normally 25-30 reps.

i guess my question is if the sdhp requires more of an effort than the rowing (set on a damper of 4) or is just pointing out a weakness? also do others notice this or have a similar problem?

Hm, I personally haven't noticed a huge discrepancy between the two. I sub 1 20kg (about 44lbs) SDHP for every 10 meters, and it takes me about 10% longer than rowing--a 500m row in the middle of a WOD takes me around 1:50, and the SDHPs take me around 2:00 or 2:10. But it doesn't feel like I have to break them up.

It could, as you said, be an indication of a weakness. Why do you have to break them up--are you feeling fatigued in any one area during the SDHP's? Or are you short of breath?

it is a little bit of both; a little being out of breath and then some fatigue- normally at the top of the pull.

i guess it is just a weakness and lack of conditioning

how do you figure the weight for the SDHPs if you are subbing this exercise for the row?

Standard sub is 1 SDHP with a standard oly bar for each 10m of rowing.

Question on that Chris, would it be the same male or female? Or should a guy use a little more weight? Not can - but should??

Right you are John.

The ladies are to use 30 pounds for the sub.

I thought of it when posting, but was too lazy to look up the poundage.

You caught me!

Most of ours have been using the 45# bar just as we're too lazy to find a 30# equiv (curl bar use)... just wondering as they're used to it.

if anyone is interested i have been adding a couple of sets of 50 sdhp to my warmup the past few days. i also brought along my stop watch to the party. the first day i started the timer and went at my normal pace. again i got gassed around 25 and had to stop for a about 15-25 seconds to rest (i never put the bar down at least). during the rest i looked at my stopwatch. the reason i have been needing to stop is that i am going way to fast. it only took my 40 seconds to get 25 reps. needless to say the second rnd i paced my self with the clock. kept a two min pace, huge difference. now it is not really a problem. i just need to remember to throw my stopwatch in the gym bag more often or not take it out when i get home.
