Indoor Rower

What you missed at the USRowing Convention

Dec 12, 2011

It’s been quite a few years since I attended the USRowing Annual Convention. I went this time primarily to complete my Level III coaching certification, meet up with some old rowing buddies, and hopefully pick up a few new tools for my toolbox as coach of the Michigan Technological University crew. As someone who has always loved the indoor rower and has used it as a critical part of my own and my athletes’ training, I was prepared for lots of references to the erg as the machine rowers hate and coaches rely on to separate the fitness levels of competitive rowers within their crews.   Continue Reading ›

Choosing Dynamic

Oct 20, 2011

Chris Wilson, our on-site coach and Rowing Advisor, had this experience over the weekend:

“On Saturday morning, an athlete I used to coach joined me at Concept2 for an indoor workout. He and his wife are deciding which indoor rower to purchase for their new home. James rowed in high school and college (often in the stroke seat), and is now a very able sculler. He’s logged a lot of kilometers on the Models B, C, and D. Continue Reading ›

Customers often share with us fun and creative ways they use to approach their workouts. This game is from the archives, first sent in to us by Dick Grossman when he was a rowing coach at Dartmouth College. Continue Reading ›

Model D vs. Dynamic: 2k Tests with Peter Dreissigacker

Sep 01, 2011

I am looking ahead to the indoor training season and realize that more people will be training on our newest indoor rower, the Dynamic erg, this winter. Comparing scores between the Model D and the Dynamic erg is the subject of speculation. The flywheel and monitor components are identical on the Model D and Dynamic, but the athlete may row differently on each. The results experienced may be unexpected. Continue Reading ›

2011 C.R.A.S.H.-B. Sprints Report

Mar 02, 2011

In 1982, 85 athletes gathered together in a boathouse at Harvard for the first ever CRASH-B Sprints. February 20 this year saw the 30th edition of what has gone on to become the World Indoor Rowing Championship. Since those early days, the race has outgrown a number of venues and is currently held at Boston University’s magnificent Agganis Arena. This year, over 2000 athletes from 22 different countries took part, with competitors ranging from ages 14 to 93, with Stephen Richardson and Paul Randall both winning hammers (the traditional CRASH-B victor’s prize) in the Men’s 90-94 Hwt and Lwt categories respectively.

The Dynamic Erg Prototype at the European Championships

Oct 06, 2010
The dynamic erg prototype made appearances at two major regattas in September: the World Masters Regatta in Canada and the European Championships in Portugal. This exposure gave us access to the impressions of current elite athletes as well as veterans in the sport. We’ve also received valuable feedback from several national teams training in both hemispheres. While the overall feedback continues to be positive, user comments have helped us identify a few more changes that will further improve the performance of the new design. Continue Reading ›
