Re: C2 Drag Factor: A guide to what you may not know.

Wow this brings back memories!

FWIW, after 6 years I can say the advice given here works. I do a lot of rowing "feet out", with a relatively low stroke rate, and hardly ever use a high drag factor. My rowing stroke is very different from when this thread started. I haven't spent a whole bunch of time specializing on rowing, but this year I set PRs for 1K, 2K, 4 minute, 30 minute, 5K, 6K, and 10K. My 500m PR is now 1:32.8, managed a 1:33.0 yesterday. That's good enough for a #7 ranking for the lightweight old dudes class.

I feel like I've still got a ways to go to reach my peak, especially on the longer pieces. I'm glad this thread got bumped.

Re: C2 Drag Factor: A guide to what you may not know.

Does anyone know where they set the drag factor on the C2 rowers at the crossfit games?

Thanks,

Tim

I'm assuming wherever they wanted to?
