I believe the answer is probably ‘yes’.

Whenever I used to row, being a shortarse, I always found that if the dial wasn't on 10 then it really limited my 500m time as I simply couldn't get enough strokes in to make up for the lesser resistance.

What should I have done differently?

7:26 Small pb on 2000m just by dropping dial too 7 seems much less effort to maintain 1:50-1:55 pace

Olympic rowers will use a drag factor between 120-140 this equates roughly to 4-6 on the damper setting.

For shorter rows 500m or less 10 is not so bad.

Mostly 10 is the favoured setting of egotistical ignoramus's Happy

Our household got a Concept 2 yesterday so I've been pretty much forced into using it. I set off far too fast on my first attempt at 500m yesterday and did 1:49, today I paced it better and got 1:34.

What resistance do you guys use on 500m and 100m respectively?

I was well under 15 seconds on the resistance 10 for 100m (think I had the wrong display setting, I did 'just row' but no milisecond measurement on the screen), and did 500m on resistance 7 in 1:32.

I did these tests purely to see how I stacked up on the forum, and never been on the rower before except a few rare cases during military PT about 10 years ago. Any advice on ideal resistance guides would be welcome as I'm using this to improve anaerobic threshold to offset systematic fatigue during squat/dead sessions

I've never been on one of these machines. I think I would perform very poorly.

Wayne, you are more suited to bent over rows.

AMH, see my post above.

Just done a 2k in 7:50, not pushing it too much as it was after half hour circuit training.

5k in 18:27

Got pins and needles throughout my limbs and couldn't see properly towards the end, I both love and hate this machine.


How do people warm up for a max effort row? I've just been jumping into them with no warm up to speak of due to laziness, I must be losing seconds because of it. I'll often feel at my best about half way through a 5k, and usually the first 1k is my slowest.

You need at least 20 minutes of warming up time to get the best from your "max effort"
