    row 2.time 63.46.distance 12000m.level 5. spm 22.
    after a 2hr row yesterday and leg training today,made a conscious effort to reduce stroke rate and put more effort into the arms/ upper body at the catch.seems to be working.

    Thanks... I'm new to rowing... but it's the only piece of equipment in our wee office gym situation that is always free. I have quickly grown to like it as much as running!
  • Hello!

    I love rowing very much. Lost weight several time with it, unfortunately it's always coming back...

    Now I'm doing it every morning, 55-75 minutes - 12-18 km, 450-700 calories.

    I've got a Finnlo Rower Aquon Pro Plus, this is my third, most professional one!

    Rowing is probably the best fitness activity, and only few people like it, do it!

    I'm happy to chat, add me any time as friend!

    I recently got a rower. I'm up to 12 minutes, but I usually do the treadmill first, then the rower. It's not my main item. I really like it and want to increase my endurance. I'll check out the group.

    welcome aboard.
    12 mins is a great start,you will soon find distance/ time increases come naturally.
    i too,do treadmill ,elliptical and strength training in rotation but use the rower as my main cardio for its full body workout properties.
    check out the conceptc2.com site,it has a logbook to record rows/ times etc and great instructional videos to ensure correct technique.
    enjoy.

    Thank you. I've made that a goal for 2015 - to try to make at least one of them happen (with a break or two perhaps).

    row 7. 6000. 30.28
    8. 6000. 31.43
    9. 5000. 24.34 .new pb.
    10. 4000. 20.44
    11. 6002 . 31.31
    12. 11525.60.00. new pb.
    13. 11485. 60.00

    put some shorter rows in to fit in strength training etc.its easy to get carried away with just rowing during challenge months.
