  1. Dark Horse – do you have any advice on a 2-3 month workout plan? Building up intensity and volume?

  2. Great contribution, thanks. In my experience rowing is the most effective way to loose weight without stressing your joints. It is amazing how fast your body adapts to the movement and increased work out by the week. But you need to cut out the usual crap you eat and drink. Avoid sodas of any kind, show McD the middle finger and go moderate on booze. Another prerequisite for weight loss is being aware that it takes time and a constant effort. You did not get fat in a week or two, why would you expect to get slim in a short time then ? Make rowing a part of you weekly life. And believe me – its getting easier every time. Good luck my fellow fatsos.

  3. I usually do the elliptical. Today I did the rowing machine for 15 minutes on level 3 resistance. I have Cerebral Palsy so the right side of my body is weaker. I felt good and enjoyed the workout. Do I need to do reps? I've lost 33LBS, looking to lose 15-20 more. I want to lose weight more than "tone". Should I take it easy on the resistance for weight loss?

  4. Rowing has changed my life. Not only have I lost over 60 lbs. in the last year, I've discovered a lot about myself. Knowing what we know about how effective rowing is, I'm amazed that people almost universally ignore what is right in front of their eyes. Rowing really works as a weight loss tool. Try it. But even more important, stay with it.

  5. I tried looking for this bt did nt find anywhere in ur vids. Can u tell me how to divide the sets. how much time exactly should I row n rest. Or jess like running we should do it at normal pace for say 30-45 mins. I do 3 sets for 7-6-5 mins n rest in between at normal pace.

  6. I just purchased my rower, it will be here tomorrow. It'a water rower. I am excited!!!!

  7. Medium build, 60 lbs overweight, used to be very active, now a couch ipad-tomato. What type / brand of row machine is recommended for puchase to acquire some better exercise habits.

  8. Interesting info. I just started rowing about a month ago and really enjoy it so far. I'm 70 y/o, in good shape but not one who enjoys working out in a gym. I've got a home gym with most of the equipment, but just got tired of the routine. Rowing is new to me and I like that there is no impact and yet most of my muscles are getting involved. Look forward to viewing more of your videos, even while rowing away. Thanks.

  9. Stand more than you sit. Walk stairs vs elevator. Don't drink soda or eat red meat. Walk at least 30 mins a day.don't eat bread or chips or crap.

  10. I am doing Charles Poliquin's Interval sprint program, 16 weeks, 4x a week. Days 1 and 3 are :30 sec all out, 90 sec rest for 10x, Day 2 is 2:00 sprint with active rest for :90 sec, 6x. Day 4 is 30 minutes for distance ( I usually get 5800 – 5700ml, aiming for 6000m at end.)

  11. Great information and great video! I started indoor rowing last May and have lost ~10 lbs thanks to nutrition changes and the intervals we do in erg class. It really does come down to the mindset, especially for people who are emotional eaters. Thanks for the helpful video!

  12. Good lawd, I got lost in a YouTube black hole & somehow came across this video at 4 in the morning and now I've found my husband 😍

  13. DarkHorse…Glad I found your videos…I like the row machine workout but don't have a comparison of what "being good" at it is… I like doing 5000M for 30 minutes (1000M per 5 min). What kind of workout do you do?…
