7 Concept2 Myths Busted

Dec 03, 2018

Myth #1: Rowing is only an upper body workout.

Rowing involves every large muscle group in the body. The legs are the primary driver on each stroke, followed by the core and finishing with the arms. The sliding seat allows the athlete to horizontally “jump” on each stroke, using the large muscles of the legs. Rowing is a high calorie burner because so many muscle groups are involved.

2018 SkiErg Sprints Results Round-Up

Nov 19, 2018

The 11th SkiErg World Sprints took place November 8-11. Over 2000 people from 34 countries competed in our 1000m virtual festival of the SkiErg.

New Logbook Features: Garmin Connect, Social Sharing, Better Privacy and More!

Nov 12, 2018

There have been a few changes to the Concept2 Online Logbook recently.

We've added Garmin Connect to our list of integrations. If you upload your workouts to the Logbook via the Concept2 ErgData app (or other apps that capture rowing stroke data), you can now set it up so that your workouts go directly into Garmin Connect. Just go to Edit Profile, choose Applications from the menu, and follow the instructions from there. It's a simple process that only takes a few seconds. (Note that this only works for upload methods that include stroke data, so it won't work for people uploading via the Concept2 Utility.) Continue Reading ›
