Re: I'm new, please help me be faster =)

Your times are fantastic, and I'm sure you've been doing some very long endurance sports. I believe that it is possible to improve your times. But unlike a beginner, this is with a much higher level of knowledge about your previous training, the volume and intensity, your availability of time, your ...

Re: peak force, avg force, DF, stroke rate, cardiac adaption and the role of muscle fiber types

Many thanks for your answers, Strength training of the aging athelete seems to be very important, especially in a sport with a high strength component. But rather as an isolated training, not as an endurance training with strength proportion- like the stroke capped based ctc in January 2019 20min ma...

Re: peak force, avg force, DF, stroke rate, cardiac adaption and the role of muscle fiber types

Thank you both for your answers ! So my theoretically influenceable weakness would be beer, even if only in the form of one mixed drink (Radler ;-)) or one light wheat beer, but frequently... almost every evening, but it's not that bad...one is ok... :-) I am living in Bavaria...you cant say no to o...

peak force, avg force, DF, stroke rate, cardiac adaption and the role of muscle fiber types

Re: NOVEMBER 2020 - CTC

fantastic efforts : esp. Mat and James,

i am happy with that result, brought me back in form with some long slow distance LIT workout, and now something complete different - some ctc stuff with a big anaerobic component, so the mix makes the difference:

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

Hello, i am in the off season at the moment, no ctc 2nd go...and no 4min time trial, but in the middle end of october i´ll start again, so if you need another rower,i am in with a low intensity 4min effort, october should be a quicker one...how many are we ?

Some great results so far ! Despite that hot weather...i felt to do some interval erging and try to do that ctc today...but just rate capped at 24...maybe a all out effort at reasonable temperatures...
