Great to have new members. I tried the CTC today, thought my max heart rate was 172 in line with my age(46), but an over enthusiastic first 30+ SPM interval after 4 20 SPM intervals reset that at a heart pounding 177!! What do other people hit during intense rowing such as these CTCs ?
Hi Diggy, I am going to put my HR monitor on for my next CTC attempt. My hR has been as high as 189 / 195 during 2k competition rows (I don't like to do too many of those because they are so hardcore).
I would imagine mine will be similar to yours Diggy, will wear the monitor next time. Certainly I was at the top end of what I can do at the moment with the 30+ spm intervals today
I have my MaxHR set as 193 on my RCX3, that's the most I've hit since I got it recently (I got fed up of sessions saying I hit 103% of my Max when it was auto set to 185, so changed it manually!). It's been a few years since I really trained on the erg, I've seen it at 200 before, but I'd say 193 is my definite max at the moment. Having said all that, I only hit 184 when I did this month's CTC, so I guess that means I've got a little more to give at the moment.And welcome aboard Jonathan!
