Ok, we get versions of this question a lot. I’m wanting to find a balance for sub in longer distance rowing. Tomorrow is 3 x 1000 m row. That’s a tough row but the rowing is easier on me than 3 x 100 45 lb sdhp. I know from experience that when I’ve got access to a concept 2 I can do 1000 and not wish I was dead. After about 60 or so straight sdhp with 45. I’m barely able to do the movement and I’m not sure about my capability in the chin ups with that many sdhp in the repeats.
Anyone else have experience when faced with this sub for rowing? I’ve always seen the sub as 1 x 45 lb sdhp per 10 meters. I feel like its the difference between a 100 m freestyle and a 100 meter butterfly in swimming - that sub is pretty equivalent. But a 1000 meter free is in no way equivalent to a 1000 m butterfly in swimming.
Thanks for any sharing on yalls experience. My barn gym does not have a rower.
