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

    15. 10 000m. 50.37.5 new pb.
    16. 2000m. 9.54. warm up for tilt at fast 2k.

    Good grief, you guys are some serious rowers. I just started rowing a couple weeks back. I don't have the time to row for 60 minutes at a time but I am putting in 30 to 35 minutes 3 times a week. I switched rowing out for elliptical to change things up. I don't pay attention to distance, but I average around 11 to 12 cals a minute per session.

    Do you guys switch hand position often? I seem to be able to only row 10 to 12 minutes and then I switch to underhand for a couple of minutes and then switch back.

    Believe me.. 3 or 4 months ago, I wasn't able to muster up anything past 20-25 minutes. So your 30-35 minutes exceed my starting place.

    I've never rowed underhand. Always overhand. Sometimes I take a wider "grip" and sometimes a more "narrow" though.

    not serious rowers compared to many others,a few of us only started in oct 2014 and have just increased distances as part of our exercise/ weight loss goals.
    the conceptc2.com website has great tips and tutorials on everything rowing related,inc videos of how to row,hand position etc.
    i personally keep a loose grip,and only wrap my hands fully when sprint finishing to beat a personal best.
