That's a fine starting point.

With your strength #'s I think if you learn proper technique you will cut that substantially, but I don't remember how tall you are?

Nada, someone with your leg strength, plus you are 3 inches taller than me, and 30 years younger should be able to match mine and beat it by 10+ seconds. Mine is 3:53 and there are plenty way faster than me. I bet it's partly technique and partly just building up your cardio will get you where you need to be.

Tabata intervals on the rower are great for building up your cardio and only take 4 minutes to do. 20 seconds row as hard as you possibly can, 10 seconds rest. repeat 8 times. Warning, if you do this as intended with an all-out effort on each interval, this will leave you gasping and coughing and unable to stand up right away, so make sure you don't have any other lifting you need to do right after...

Technique goes a LONG way on rowing. About a month ago, I knew I had a 5k row coming up. I watched a LOT of videos on rowing, and really learned a lot. My first 500m was something like 2:15 or something (not great, especially for someone with ok endurance, and almost 6' tall). When I did my 5k, I did it in 20:50, so I improved a LOT with a little practice and a lot of video watching. I think I searched for "rowing tutorial" on youtube. A couple of the videos that I watched were Khalipa; most weren't.

Danielle - that is pretty solid at your height! Height is a major advantage on the rower.

as a 16 y/o girl with access to a c2 rower... i can safely assume you have access to a smart phone too!

Upload a 1 min video of yourself rowing and compare it to someone with good technique side by side on your monitor, read about technique... then practice and improve. you can definitely drop below 4min following this
