Re: FlexFoot width issue with running modern shoes

I wore my running shoes for a while, they also got stuck.
They are Brooks Beasts, shoes for heavy pronators and maximum stability. They are very wide at the heel.
I now wear my taekwondo shoes. Much better! No need for support or correction anyway.

I have solved this dilemma, I am going to buy a lion costume and get on my rower and I will have a suit, mind connection and then just like the lions, not have to warm up. :D
Mind you, lions attract flies, so you will have to wiggle your tale.
This may be a challenge while rowing.

Re: Change username

So there is a link! I wondered if that was the case :)
It's a small world, I also play the bassoon (as an amateur).

Re: Change username

In the French language bas-son means low-sound.
It's the name of the lowest sounding woodwind instrument.

Is there any way to change my username in this forum? I can see how to change password or email adress but not the username. Help appreciated :D
Just curious: why don't you like your username.
Perhaps the word has an "altenrative" meaning in the English language that I am not aware of? :)

Re: Seat Pain, Feels like 2 Positions that "Switch" almost with a "Pop"

A few days ago, I did a workout of about 50 minuts, half of it with the C2 pad and the other half on the "bare" seat. With the pad on, my sitbones didn't touch the seat, but I still felt some pain. Without the pad, I could feel my sitbones tilt, but the feeling was the same. Since I began rowing abo...

I used the C2 seat pad, but now I don't anymore.
Sitting more to the rear end of the seat helped to alleviate the pain.
Although I still feel it, but changing the seating position really helped.

Re: Model D repairs in Orange County, CA

700 hours may not be much, but if it's clicking, the chain has
probably been dry for a while which will shorten its lifespan.
That's why periodic/preventive maintenance was invented :)

Re: Drag factor set but not matching the workout?

I recently had 3 faulty DF values in my logbook, even 2 in a row.
The values listed were always 16 instead of 116.
PM5 firmware is up to date.
I updated ErgData (android) but have yet to do a workout.

Re: Layback help

I find it impossible to apply too much layback while I row strapless. Perhaps rowing strapless can be a test? If you try this start cautiously, if you don’t finish the stroke correctly you can go over backwards! Definitely. It's a strange feeling to start with, but it does get easier with practice ...

Re: Stretching, (Dynamic?) and Warmup

There are different views on this.
Some say that stretching before a workout enhances the risk of injuries
and advise to warm up before and stretch after a workout.

I'd suggest that you confirm with certitude (e.g. by posting a link to a video) that your technique is correct before trying to swap out the existing handle for something else.
A very good idea, but it doesn't seem to happen...
