Re: Monte's Log, Featuring a Debate About Dotard Genetic Potential with an Ant

I watched it sober. Seems like a pretty knowledgeable guy but of course I understood less than half of what he said.

I didnít get through all of it but will probably come back to it tomorrow.

I was a little distracted by the thing wrapped around his stomach

I had to stop the video right away after seeing that terrible skinnyfat physique.

That's the thing about endurance training, don't forget your squats and bench or look like shiet.

I think it's the rolled down top of a rowing singlet, which is how rowers apparently like to train. I do need to get back to the gym this week.

Re: Monte's Log, Featuring a Debate About Dotard Genetic Potential with an Ant

4/11
Warmup - 10'
LD32 (UT2) - 50'
12066m/2:04.3/16.5 spm/154 HR/167 MHR
Cooldown - 10' (Flat Ratio 4x1'/1'r)

Could have done 60', but given I just did a 90' piece on Friday, I boozed the last two nights, a new drill was programmed after the piece, and I want to do my next session (UT1) tomorrow, I figured just keeping things easy was better. The new form cues helped; as with last time, the chain felt lighter when I was doing it right, and my stroke rate was naturally a bit higher due to being a little quicker at the catch without overcompressing. I'm interested to see if that helps solve some of my UT1 issues.

Flat Ratio was interesting; damper at zero still ended up being too high for drag - I confirmed afterwards that it should be around UT3 level (so ~75, unlike 84). I kept it at around 30-32 spm, but was going too fast (1:51ish as opposed to UT2 pace). We'll see how I do next time.

Re: Monte's Log, Featuring a Debate About Dotard Genetic Potential with an Ant

I'm contemplating stepping up my rowing game, so I've been thinking about it a bit. Here's one thing I was wondering about, which I'm sure someone has looked into, and maybe you know the answer.

If you're actually rowing (i.e on the water like they do in the Olympics and such), how much of your forward movement is due to arm movements vs leg movements. I feel like I have seen such analyses for things like running and swimming, so I'd imagine someone has done it for rowing.

I feel the need to be excruciatingly anal and state that you actually move backwards when rowing

Well, that is true, so no one can fault you for that.

Re: Monte's Log, Featuring a Debate About Dotard Genetic Potential with an Ant

4/12
Warmup - 15'
LD33 (UT1) - 27' (5' @22, 22' @23
7076m/1:54.6/22.7 spm/169 HR/179 MHR
Cooldown - 15'
r7011m

Wanted to get to 30', but suddenly got tired in the last 5', so I called it. I did a UT1 session a week and kind of crashed around 21-22' and limped home to 25' flat, so a bit of an improvement. I do think I'm starting to get the hang of what non-UT2 cadence and pressure should feel like, but I have a virtual coaching session Wednesday morning, so maybe some insight to be had from that.
