    I used to be able to row 2000 m in around 8 min 40. I never sprinted shorter than that.

    ETA: that was back in my chronic cardio days. I only sprint during interval training now for a max of up to one minute. I have to avoid rowing now due to tennis elbow injury :-(

        that's pretty good paleo-bunny. I havn't sprinted for that distance yet. I think i probally would've passed out. 500 it about my limit so far with sprinting.

          Don't own a rowing machine, but did a 340 mile kayak race in just over 53 hours. Anyone wanna play on the river?

              ^^^ that is a good time. I can do 1:40 at the moment, and I am getting quicker. I've been improving massively since I started lifting properly (squats & deads)

                Thanks! Deads do make a huge difference, I agree. What SPM are you at for your 1:40?

                    1:37 is my PR in the 500, normally sitting around 1:45 though

                      Just managed 1:38! SR was 33 for most of it, crept up to 34 for the last 100m or so.
                      I think my technique is OK but not perfect by any means. I have a friend who used to do a lot of rowing, I need to get him to come over and give me some tips!

                        Nice! Yep, technique is pretty important so it's well worth having it checked.

                            I did a rowing workout the other day 5x500....each between 1.42 and 1.46 ........ I was focusing on stroke rate, keeping the pulls slow but hard.
                            Followed by 3x250 .... No idea what to target hear so I hit 3x48 seconds. First was 34 strokes a minute, last was 28, but same time haha.

                              Thanks. To clarify, I found through trial and error that I was able to bring down my PB for 2000 m by focusing effort on 2 or 3 flat-out sprints, still going quite fast in between (i.e. not proper intervals). I would always end on an all-out sprint for the last 1- 2 mins. This was not conscious interval training, as I was not familiar with the concept at the time.

                              I am inspired by this thread to have a go at 500 min sprints, following a warm-up on some other cardio machines less damaging to my elbows. I'm challenging myself to achieve a 2-min 500 m sprint within a fortnight. I believe I am capable of 1 min 50.
