  • I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID EXCEPT YOU SAYING ITS ADDICTIVE. I HAVE ONLY BEAN USING THE CONCEPT 2 FOR 30 YEARS I ONLY DO A HALF MARATHON 5 TIMES A WEEK EEEEEERRRRRRR……I AGREE WITH EVERY THING YOU SAID

  • Is there a way to prevent the knees from over extending when you push real hard on the rower? I have the impression I’m hurting my knees by over-extending the legs on hard rows.

  • Late to the party here Cameron, but you’re an inspiration. I erged for fitness in my late 20s early 30s then got off it when I got into cycling. Then along came life and family etc. Late 40s now and am working my way back into erging. Sorry I left it. Getting my family into it too!

    Keep up the great work and best of luck in Tokyo!

    Awww Yeaah! 😉

  • Point 3. So true. I go to a good gym, there are 4 C2s, almost unused. People look at me when I sit on one. and stare when I spend more than 5 minutes on it. (Really) And Point 1, this is EXACTLY what happened to me, but the idea of doing a 2k test every monday is… tempting. But My recover is less than optimal. Once a month is enough:-)

  • It IS addictive! You feel soooooo good afterwards. I feel that time flies faster than treadmill running. This is my favorite go-to cross training activity.

  • The addictive one is so true! I just started indoor rowing for the past 2 months and since 2 weeks i’m actually looking forward to train again while wondering if i can improve my times of the week before. Best part is almost every week i do go faster:-) Great vid!

  • Thank you for taking the time to teach everyone about indoor rowing. I recently began using the rowing machine at my CrossFit gym and I love it. I am 57 ish and I noticed I have begun losing weight and its due to this machine.

  • Just looking at the technique the guys are using on the indoor rower it seems very different to the technique they use in the boat. I guess the main thing is that they seem to lay back a lot further on the rower and pull the handle much higher than they’d pull an oar. Is this just the best way to get metres/watts/ speed on the erg and so different to the best way to row on the water or is there some other reason (injury prevention?)

  • I absolutely love the the channel, your content, although its tailored largely to quite a specific audience, is very relatable and honest. I think videos like these are great and anything training related or videos which give an insight into parts of the sport that most people don’t see often are also fantastic. Keep up the videos!

  • #9 rowing has a minimal eccentric component, so will make you less sore for a given amount of cardio than running or say a bodyweight or KB HIIT circuit. This means it won’t fuck with your lifting gainz as much (or yoga or whatever.) The other commonly available low-eccentric cardio option would be a bike; but that’s not a full body movement. Aka intervals on the erg is literally the most time efficient and physiologically effective way to keep fitness high without negatively impacting other training.

  • I’ll include the erg in my training for a 24h mountain bike race. I never thought I’ll grow to love rowing �� Can only recommend! ����

  • I see some channels suggesting that my heels should not lift at all during the stroke yet on this video all the athletes heels lift quite substantially, what advice would you give on this? Thanks!

  • Great video! This is so true, ergs are ridiculously addictive. There is no better feeling than putting in the work and seeing the numbers fall… plus, even on the days when it’s not a pb or new world record, it’s great fuel for the next attempt.
