Re: 500m Row Times

Re: 500m Row Times

I'm really curios and want to give this a try. I've never PR'd on a 500m row. From what I've been reading on here having a good squat and deadlift helps. I think my squat and deadlift are decent and this sounds like fun. I'll give it a shot sometime in the next few days and see where I stand.

Technique is the most important factor on a rower to get better times.

Poor technique=poor power application.

500m time = 1:22.1 (45 mins after a 2k...)
I'm curious about the inclusion of the leg press. What does it give you that DL and Squat does not? Are all the sessions so lower body oriented?

I'm also curious about the carry over from the rower to real rowing. I mean, if someones never done real rowing in their life, but has perfect technique and good times on short and long pieces on the rower, would that be worth a damn if they gave real rowing a shot?

A great erger will have the conditioning to do great things in a boat, but the technique does not transfer very much. Significant coaching is necessary to move a boat well no matter how well you erg.

I agree

Its like running all your life on a treadmill then going outside for a run

You'll find out form is so different even though your doing the same 'thing'

The technique in a boat is much more demanding than on a rower. In a boat you have to worry about balancing the boat, timing, feathering, tapping out, handle heights, etc...

A rower is a raw measurement of power. It removes all the distractions you have in a boat, and all you have to do is pull. (The pain game.)

Re: 500m Row Times

A few weeks ago we did the 5x500 (so terrible) and my times were 1:30, 1:36, 1:42, 1:45, 1:35. Not sure what an all out single 500 would be, but I suspect it would be pretty good. While rowing sucks, it is one of the few things my size (6'3", 255ish) lends itself to well.

Re: 500m Row Times

We will be doing this at my box this week. Can't wait to see the times.
My PR is 1:54. I like the 30 sec and 250m sprint idea as well. Thanks!
