entering rowing machine workouts (Read 71 times)


probably not fast enough

    Hi folks, I'm looking for advise from anyone who logs rowing machine workouts here...  I just bought a water rower from costco and I'm very happy with it; will be logging my workouts here on RA.  I guess there's no algorithm for calculating calories, and I don't have a way to manually enter what the rowing machine computer says.... is there any work-around I don't know about?

      I created a new activity in my training log called "Indoor Rowing" and set the default distance unit to "meters".

          Thanks btb.  That sounds like what I did; created a new workout type and set the units to meters, but there doesn't seem to be any way to enter calories burned when I log workouts, and it doesn't do it automatically.  Guess it doesn't really matter, eh?  But it would be cool.  Anyway, I'm trying to make up my mind about how to use the machine... steady pace for building endurance, or high intensity, short intervals.  I'm inclined to try steady pace, but maybe I should mix it up... Any thoughts?  Any other rowers out there?

            Another +1 for this.

              Thanks for the interest, Kerry...you're a rower, I see... you graph daily meters, cool, cool....  Well, if you notice this Eric, maybe there's a way to enter calories from the workout machine manually?  Also, I put my machine into the equiment list, but it doesn't come up as a selectable equipment when I log a workout.....  Well, no prob.  I'm enjoying rowing so far, and RA doesn't need to change at all, I just thought maybe there's a work-around or a button I don't know about.  BTW, I think I'm going to use my interval timer app on the phone to mix up short, high intensity sections into otherwise "normal" rowing sessions.. I tried it out just now, and it was great.

                Take a look at the Pete Plan, which give you a mix of workouts.  Many rowers use this plan in the off season for general fitness.
