Dark Horse Rowing


I just completed my first rowing sesh with this program, and I have to say, I am HOOKED! Mostly, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the positive reinforcement about how I can MASTER MY DAY! I got super fat during COVID and I found something I can do without special outfits, commuting, gym fees, and public scrutiny! I'm so excited to work my way back to health with Dark Horse Rowing!
Love rowing, got back into it using your video's. Need to get fit and loose weight. Was doing it every day cause I like to just zone out, but then one of your videos said to only do it 2-3 x's a week. Haven't been on my machine in a week. Oh poo.
Are you close to that sub 20 minute 5k? Join Dark Horse Rowing for a guided row to get there!
Check out our Kemps giving it their all in the early hours of the morning! Peter 5h 14min; Sue 6h 17min!

8 Ways Life Has Changed Since I Started Rowing - Enjoy this Article from Dark Horse Rowing🙏
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?
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!

Hi - I signed up for Rowvember but haven’t received any emails. Is it running?

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.

This maximal effort rowing time period varies from person to person based on their physical strength and training history, among other things. Generally, the maximal effort time period lasts 30-50 seconds.

“I hold you responsible. Today I went for our 30-minute rowing lead. I tried to keep a steady pace and felt strong through 20 minutes. I struggled a little for the next five, but pushed hard for the last five. In one month of following your 5k program I improved 220m to 8293m/ Yes! I am now in the lead by 91 meters. Thank you!”

Happy Monday, Dark Horses! December can be a really intense season for a lot of people. There’s so much we want to do, and so much more that we’re told we need to be doing. Tradition and nostalgia can turn from a blissful holiday experience to being like a train running us over.

That’s why we wanted to share this quote from the great Dr. Angelou, to encourage you to guard your experiences during this season of bombardment. Make time to do the things that build the life you want, and the memories you want to carry into the future.

Hey - are you new here? Are you trying to figure out how the heck to use that you or somebody you loved picked up for an early Christmas present? We thought we'd compile a few tips from The Crew for this to share with you "What I wish I knew before I started rowing." Taken directly from the community of in The Crew:

1. Wear comfortable clothing ideally made from material that wicks away sweat and has no tags or seams that may cause chaffing, especially on longer distances.
2. Wear flat shoes with little to no padding on the soles. This will allow you to have the right angle between your knees and feet at the catch and maximize your power.
3. Use your legs, not your back. The legs contain your body’s biggest muscles. Use Them!
4. Prepare for an incredible night's sleep. This is a full-body workout and you are going to get the rest you deserve afterward.

And if you're one of our seasoned Dark Horses, please sound off in the comments - tell us what you wished you knew when you first started ! Pass along that hard won wisdom.

5 steps to a disciplined and healthy lifestyle:
1) Identify areas where you can improve
2) Regulate what motivates you
3) Let go of everything that takes you off your goals
4) Create daily tasks and routines
5) Turn these steps into your habits

Start off by creating schedules of your crew workouts and look at your schedule long enough for you to believe you can maintain the schedule. Give all the motivation you need to give yourself and get on that crew machine and row yourself through all the tough times.

The real secret to creating a consistent, healthy lifestyle of active movement is to not do it for the results. It's doing it because you find the joy in the doing. Not every moment on that machine or choosing that meal over another might feel like the best moment of your life, but finding the little things to love, while you are in the thick of it, can take you so much farther than just pinning all your hopes to that "someday" goal. Share a little moment of joy your found in your journey today!

Can you believe that is already over? Maybe those minutes on the machine have crawled by sometimes, but the month has felt like lightning. You've grown and pushed yourself, maybe done things you thought you couldn't do or set personal bests this month. Maybe you're wondering, "How am I going to keep this attitude of challenging my limits after Rowvember is over?"

If your motto is, "Tomorrow, I will row harder than I did yesterday", our distance challenge workouts might just be what you need to keep that drive alive! We offer 5k 101, 500M 101, and the toughest of 'em all: Marathon-distance workouts. These extensive programs will push your boundaries and make you work like crazy.
