    I'm right around 2 mins for 500m and at 4:15 for 1000m.

      i can't seem to get my breathing pattern right when i sprint. It seems that i hold my breath unconsciously and then breath irratically. when i get tired then i seem to short stroke it. At a slower pace breathing pattern fine and strokes are longer. I guess i just need to practice.

        What damper settings do you guys use?
        And is there any sort of intuitive way to figure out what you should use?

        I only recently learned 10 doesn't mean you're the awesomest, and that you should see what 'drag factor' you're at for different levels, and go for something that gets you in a specific range. But I can't get the rower to show the drag factor (I change the setting, but it still doesn't show up).

            My SPM is normally at around 28 for 500m. I'm a pretty short guy though so it'll go up to anything between 35-40 for shorter distances.

              My damper sticks around 5.

              My new favorite warmup is 400m row. 45 sec rest: 300m row, 30 sec rest; 200m row, 15 sec rest; 100m row. I'm trying to keep in around 4:30-5:00 total.

              I've just started rowing. Loving it m

                How tall are all of you? I'm 5'4".

                My friend who is 6'2" made 1:30 500m rows look really easy. He has pretty strong legs, but being tall certainly helps in power output

                  That sounds appealing as it's in line with interval training. When you say rest, that's total rest right? i.e you are essentially rowing 1000 m in 3 mins 30 secs total over 5 mins? If so, that's very impressive.

                  I have the damper stick on 8 - feels about right for me.

                  I'm 5' 3" with inside leg 28 inches. Certainly doesn't help with power output!

                    yep being tall is a massive advantage when rowing. However it's a disadvantage when it comes to weightlifting, and I know which one I'd rather be better at!

                      Yeah. And this is a warm up. I'm hauling ass to make that total time, I just keep it going.

                        OK - I get it now - you are doing true intervals.

                        And you're 5' 1. Awesome.

                          I rowed a couple years ago and I loved it. Its a helluva workout. People who like it should try to get a coach to help them with their form because holding proper form works ALL your muscles. Rowing shoulders.jpg
                          Those muscles were from rowing only. It was near the end of my time with the club I used to row that we started adding situps and things. They were harder than I thought but not impossible. I'm hoping to get back into rowing as I just joined a gym with a concept2.

                            Rowing is a fantastic workout. I'm working with a couple of rowers and they all pullreally well on the erg's. Great stroke rate and output.

                            The C2's are great for conditioning, strength, muscle building.

                              I just joined a gym and went rowing this morning. Its been so long. I did 2000M in about 14.5 minutes. Suuuper slow. I took a lot of breaks to stretch and reacclimate myself to the erg. It felt good. I then did 5 minutes of extra rowing ontop of that, just to work on my form. I had jelly legs when I stood up and my shoulders and back are sore.
                              Rowing is a crazy good workout. I really missed it. I was kind of laughing in the gym and I'm sure I was loud as hell and disturbing Ye Olde Elliptical-ers.
                              It will take me a long time to get back to where I want, but I'm happy to try. I had the best legs, arms and shoulders that I've ever had when I was rowing consistently. About 4 hours/week. I would like to keep it around 3, maybe, with some weights and stuff thrown in to give me 4 hours total. Rowing works your upper calves, right under your knee. I seriously had killer calves. WOOT!

                                Haha yeh it will do that to you.

                                All rowing is great. I might be working with some open ocean rowers soon (not alot of leg drive mainly upperbody pull) as well as the canal rowers and it really is a fantastic workout. There are about 3-4 rowing tests I use to measure different things, all suck whilst doing them but are a fantastic workout.

                                Keep it up, you wont regret it.
