Dark Horses. THIS!
DECEPTION indeed! Challenged my math skills setting interval timer🤣 added a long cool down - great workout team!
Morning, DHF, what day is this🥺 Moving or rowing on!🚣‍♀️🚣‍♀️🚣‍♀️🚣‍♀️🚣‍♀️🚣‍♀️🚣‍♀️🚣‍♀️🚣‍♀️🚣
We all remember the dreaded two-a-day practices from high school football years. A chance to toughen up quick and build muscle and endurance for the season.
What are the science and thoughts behind all that for rowing? Would two workouts be better than one? Would it be good to add a two-a-day into the mix a few times a month for peak performance?
thx
Loving Rowvember so far! 3/30 done that's 10% :)
Minor constructive feedback: for day 3 it took me a few minutes to figure out what the task is (it was early in the morning I admit). Like how many intervals I need to set up, what I need to do.
Please be a bit more explanatory!

Thanks!
Istvan
Hi - I signed up for Rowvember but haven’t received any emails. Is it running?
#Rowvember Dark Horse Rowing
Question in damper vs resistance. I have a nordic track track 500rw. In some of the workouts I noticed it stating damper of say 125. How does that translate to resistance? I can set the wheel to 10, 8, 6, 4, or 2 but then have resistance levels I can set.
Just passed the One Million mark yesterday. Started July 1, 2020 on the Concept 2 & Dark Horse. 😊😊
Just in time to join the Concept 2 Team challenge for March (begins tomorrow, the 15th). And got a couple of John & Kitcho's Brew sessions to catch up on! ☕️☕️
Recently got waylayed by some life-drama and, in a blink, 3 weeks went by without touching the Rower. 😔😔😔 Resumed yesterday and definitely felt the difference (a 5k, just to see what it'd feel like). The good news is the technique looked pretty decent (muscle memory still there) and after the 1st 2k, started feeling a bit more natural again. Still, clearly have some reconditioning to do now. 🤮🤮🤮
I’m brand new to this community. Very excited to start this journey. Here’s a clip of my 10 minute drive workout. Appreciate any and all feedback as I want to be using this machine in the most efficient way possible! Thanks🙏👊

Improving rowing for coaches, gyms, and athletes. You work hard at rowing, make rowing work for you. At Dark Horse Rowing, we believe everyone can excel at their chosen pursuit of fitness and they deserve support, a community, and the tools to help them get there.

We do this by un-complicating rowing, building an online community of support, and make our workouts usable with other programs, simple to understand, and mobile accessible. Dark Horse Rowing is both a program and a coaching tool to improve performance for rowing. The workouts are app based, updated automatically, and allow for workout tracking. All drills are shown in video and through written points of performance. Dark Horse Rowing was made for non-rowers who use rowing in their training and want to de-mystify the movement or simply get faster.

A common technique question we get is “How do you know where to return your handle to every stroke?”

The answer: Mark your catch.

-The first step is, get into your catch position, making sure your shins are vertical, your hands are up and you have a flat back with proper posture.
-The second step is, note the position your chain is in as it comes through the uprights that support your monitor. That’s the position we want that hand to return to each and every time.
-Third step, repeat the process and get the hang of it.

You will notice better results when you work out with the proper technique.

If you start looking at challenges as disguised opportunities, then (and only then) you'll begin to unlock your true potential.

Are you ready to challenge yourself?

It's the end of #Rowvember Week 3 and if you are feeling great and starting to think about what you'll do when Rowvember ends, here's our recommendation.

1. Sign up for a 2 week free trial to the Crew. https://buff.ly/3jzMDW7

2. Once you're in, take a look at our challenge programs! For example, our 2k 101 program will challenge you to work out 40-60 minutes twice a week for 8-weeks. You will work on your strength, conditioning, and performance with each session. Or if that's not your style, check out one of the other programs that's included in your Crew membership.

And step 3 - whatever you decide to do next, make sure you make a plan to keep your new habit going!

The hard part is not becoming the best, it's staying the best. Similarly, the hard part is not starting to work out, the harder part is continuing to work out every day and sticking to your schedule.
Welcome to week 3 of #Rowvember. We hope weeks 1&2 were productive, and we hope you are looking forward to week 3 as much as we are. This week's motivation mantra is: "Every day is not going to be the best day, neither will you be motivated to work out at full capacity every day. Just know that every time you work out, give it your best. Your biggest competition is the person you see in the mirror."

"What a difference a year makes. I walked into Invictus a size 16, weighing 167 pounds. Today I am between an 8 and 6 (woot wot!) and weigh 140 pounds. My nutrition greatly improved, and I am still working on it; as you know it is a process for me. I feel incredibly different from where I was a year ago, mentally and physically. My family and friends have seen such a change in me and are so supportive. I wish I could somehow bottle all this up and pass it out.

None of this would have been possible without your unconditional continued support and confidence in me." - Carla S.

It is week 2 of #rowvember and the whole community is in this together.

We saw a lot of tagging each other last week and encouragement happening in the links. If you've got a buddy doing #Rowvember with you this month, mention them in the comments and show them some love. Here are a few ways you can recognize them:

1. Let them know how doing this together is helping you hold yourself accountable.
2. High Five them for inviting you on this journey you are on together
3. Let them know when you've done the row of the day and tell them to tag you back.

4 top tips for foot stretcher position:

1) Athletes with longer legs overall, but shorter shin bones may benefit from adjusting the foot stretchers higher than you would if their legs were proportional.

2) For athletes with shorter legs, but with flexible hamstrings and Achilles' tendons, they could find leverage by keeping the foot stretchers lower than you would for someone with less flexibility and short legs.

3) People with low flexibility in hamstrings and Achilles tendons benefit by setting the foot stretchers higher than you would for someone with your leg length.

4) Lastly, people with big feet (size 13+) would want to drop those foot stretchers lower than you would for someone of your height but with smaller feet.
