    Great video! What do you recommend for breathing – should it stay the same pattern no matter the stroke rate?

    There is a free app called Metrownome. I found it very helpful for stroke rate. It’s very boring.😂😂 But it really does help.

    Great workout! What do you suggest is the best damper setting for this workout. My 5.4 short legs did not achieve anywhere close to the distance you achieved, but I did keep up with stroke rate for the entire 20 minutes. Will repeat again this weekend with a higher damper setting. Thanks again for all your great videos!

    If I have a water rower any adjustments needed (don't assume so) Also you called out a Spotify playlist but those only have 2 songs.

    Lol. “That stroke rate killed me.” 😂😂😂😂😂 But you are so young! I’m 65 and I did it in 92 degree weather and 100% humidity. That was not easy. Thank you!

    Done. Stroke rate 17/22/20/26
    I’d appreciate more workouts that emphasize maintaining the same power output at various stroke rates. My power seems weak at low stroke rates….split paces of 2:34/2:28/2:26/2:15 today. It seems I should work on being stronger/faster at slower paces? Maybe a workout where you maintain your 2k pace at various stroke rates?

    Having been giving an ultimatum by my Dr, either drop some pounds eat right or risk death, I choose living and totally changed my lifestyle, I have been rowing for about 4months, talking to folks who do this said I was doing it wrong and should youtube you a long with others. I am a 47 year old male, I have lost 27lbs thru rowing and diet change along with other exercise, also coming off my meds per the DR. My row workout use to consist of (before actually asking and watching channels) 20min, resistance on 10, SR 24-27, sometimes higher sometimes lower but that's average, average split of 2:10 some dip down into the 1:50 range and never higher than 2:25, average meters is 4200 to 4500, heart rate of 140 to 170. After watching and talking all say go to lower resistance like 4 to 6, lower SR to around 20-22, and you will drop your split times…. However when doing this my split goes up, I get bored, feel I am not getting as good as workout, I can arm, leg core as hard as I can and still nothing, so I bump it to 10 and go back to what has worked…… anytips

    Great workout. I started in with only 3 minute rounds (didn't think I could hang this long) but then decided I could try the 5 minutes. So I did the first 3 minutes, then started over. Good died, allowed you to warm up to the stroke and tempo. Than you for creating this and keep these coming, good videos for people just starting out like me.

    I couldn’t hang. Great work! I need more work to be able to sustain that last stroke rate. I try and emulate how smooth you’re form is but damn it’s tough!!! Thanks for the guide and workout! Much appreciated!
