It is not easy to find athletes willing to do a maximum effort 2k on the Dynamic Indoor Rower then turn around and do it again on a Model D or E in the same season, but we are gathering as much information as people are willing to share on how times compare between the types of machines.

Eric has been an early adopter of the Dynamic erg and has had about as much time on it as anyone. Continue Reading ›

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

Sep 01, 2011
