So why don't I row more consistently... good point, it is because our house is too small to handle a permanent spot for the rower, and there are other logistical issues that are inexcusable reasons for not putting in the miles. Writing this makes me wonder about my ability to self-inflict "AHA" moments. I NEED TO ROW MORE. Rowing is gentle on the joints, I yell it at the top of my lungs on rooftops all the time. Rowing gives you range of motion without being hard on your joints. Rowing allows your entire body to find a rhythm that is dictated by your breathing pattern (and not the other way around!) Stay low with your stroke rate and increase the resistance by raising the drag factor on the concept2 rower, or add more water to your waterrower. One of the "special" ways to increase drag on the C2 is dangerous when you have little kids: removing the silver mesh. You will find double the drag :-) however you will also hear TRIPLE the noise!
Ok now for the business part of it all. I have a workout library that is available online at www.row2go.com. You can access over 70 workouts and use my instruction and rowing rhythm to get a great row out of your machine. In case you are a possessed on the water rower or a psychotic 2K chaser on the Concept2 machine you will enjoy www.xenorowingcoach.com. In case you want direct downloads have a look at www.facebook.com/row2go :-)
That is it for now!!!
