    how much are you weighing right now gnp? i rowed on them when i was between 250-260 so you should probably be good. your ass will go to sleep after about 20 minutes and thats the worst fucking thing ever. i remember doing hour long steady state and that was the worst part of it.

    what do you guys think about rowing machines in terms of cardio?

    im looking for something that is a little less intensive on my knee, so running is out, and ever since the campus gym facility made that awesome aquatic complex, theres entirely too many smokin hotties out there for me to make my first strides of gym work post surgery shirtless infront of them

    i used a concept 2 rower once (don't know what model) and i loved it, the absolute best way to pull of hiit in the morning, when it is shitty outside etc.

    I am at about 320 :rofl:

    :rofl: holy fuck dude. well try to find a model c or whatever at a local gym and see how it feels, all the dimensions are the same from model to model

    ergs are definitely the best cardio machine there is hands down. full body lacticity, very easy to do intervals and all kinds of shit. concept2.com has daily workouts and shit too

    one of the best. if you know how to train with it, it will kick your fucking ass. it does stress somewhat on the knee though, at least from personal experience, since the majority of the movement and power comes from the legs.

    are you on crew? that's a pretty unbelievable time if you're not on crew. world record is 5:37 and 6:02 for lightweight.

    They changed the E. It's higher off the ground and supposedly stronger. Also its really expensive.
