Rowing: collegiate rowing, harvard business school, open regatta
harvard business school, open regatta, ncaa eligibility: Hi Emma: Nice try, but it s definitely the same sport and you are technically ineligible.

Rowing: Good Excersises to Do?, free weight exercises, leg muscles
free weight exercises, leg muscles, free weights: Hi Tom: I can relate to you. When I rowed in college, I was pretty skinny; but I had incredibly strong arms from years of weightlifting.

Rowing: gaining weight while rowing, daily calorie intake, cardiovascular workouts
daily calorie intake, cardiovascular workouts, bench press: Hi Conor: It is extremely difficult to put on much weight in the middle of the racing season.

indoor sprints, lightweight program, bucknell: Hi Ashley: Your times are above the average for female lightweights your age, around the Top-35%.

split time, varsity team, heavyweights: Hi Erika: Comparing your time to other 13-15 year old heavyweights (135 or more) on the Concept II Database, your time seems to be right in the middle.

weighted gpa, elite light, consolation prize: Hi Cody: Based on your 6K time, you rank in the Top-15% for 16-18 year old male lightweights.

Rowing: Rowing, high school sophomore, scholarship candidate
high school sophomore, scholarship candidate, hi jack: Hi Jack: If you plan to row lightweight, I d say 6:45 for the 2K is highly respectable. But it seems like you are still growing and will row heavyweight; there, you will probably have to pull 6:30 or better if you want to be actively recruited. I see no...

Rowing: rowing injury recovery, knee cap, ligament
knee cap, ligament, physical therapist: Hi Zyna: This is a tough one. It is obvious that your knee either has some additional damage (like a ligament) or it has not healed yet. The rowing motion puts a lot of strain on your knees, so it is no surprise that it would be hurting. Neither myself,...

percentiles, heavyweights, old women: Hi Ana: Here is the breakdown of 2K times for 19-21 year old women heavyweights (Source: CII Database) -- Average Time: 8:00.1 PERCENTILES 90th 75th 50th 25th 7:18.4 7:33.4 7:54.7 8:24.2 As you can see, your time is above average. Good...

scholastic aptitude test, boathouse row, guidance counselor: Hi Nicholas: In terms of rowing only, you can probably make varsity at any college crew in the U.S. -- including Yale and Harvard.

Rowing: Wrist pain, reverse barbell curls, muscle building exercises
reverse barbell curls, muscle building exercises, ligament injury: Hi Sammi: It s one thing to be stoic. But intense pain is your body s way of telling you something is wrong.

concept2, percentiles, heavyweights: Hi Christian: You might want to try the Concept II Website ( http://www.concept2.com/sranking03/rankings.asp ) which has online rankings. I did a query for 30-39 Year Old Male Heavyweights and got the following. Average Time: 7:03.0 PERCENTILES 90th...

Rowing: 2K erg time, winter practices, intense workout
winter practices, intense workout, soccer balls: Hi Andrew: Rowing is great way to maintain your cardio while recovering from your injury.

Rowing: 2k, lifting weights, smart diet
lifting weights, smart diet, protein intake: Hi Maxine: Your time is just below the average time (7:38) posted by 15 and 16 year old lightweight girls on the Concept II Database.

Rowing: 2k, spring season, workouts
spring season, workouts, great time: Hi Samantha: Your time is very good. For 12-14 year old heavyweight women, you are in the Top-30%. Getting down to below 8:00 might be a challenge at this point of the season. You are going to be on the water more and doing less erg workouts. With the...

Rowing: 2k Erg Times, college coach, prospective college
college coach, prospective college, better next year: Hi Keith: Your time is well above the average (7:20) for lightweights your age. You are in the Top-30%. I d guess you would have to post a 6:53 or better next year and a 6:45 or better by Senior Year to get a college coach s attention. However, recruiting...

Rowing: 2k plan, mental barrier, bodyweight
mental barrier, bodyweight, workouts: Hi Sam: Lowering 16 seconds when you are a novice is one thing. But when you reach your peak, it s not quite that easy to drop that much time. While you will need to hone your carsiovascular base with 6Ks and 10Ks, you want to do pieces where you are at...

Rowing: 2k by Senior Year, weight lifting routine, target
weight lifting routine, target, muscle building: Hi Steven: Your time is above average for 16-18 year old male heavyweights (55th percentile). Getting down to 6:30 would put you in the 90th Percentile. This is not an easy goal to attain. I suggest you shoot for a more attainable 6:45 target by senior...

Rowing: 2k Times, resistance level, crew team
resistance level, crew team, hey mr: Hi Chaz: I don t know how old you are. That factors into my answer. Assuming you are between 19-29, your time is about 15 seconds below the average time for a heavyweight. But considering you are a pretty green novice, that s a good start and your time...

Rowing: Last 6k test, lake natoma, youth nationals
lake natoma, youth nationals, southwest region: Hi Jef: Both you and your partner are pulling great erg scores for the 2K and 6K. Your times are in the Top 10% for lightweight men between ages 15 and 16. Your question is kind of vague. Qualifying for the Youth Nationals is not based on erg scores....

Rowing: College Rowing, extracurricular participation, lightweight program
extracurricular participation, lightweight program, varsity eight: Hi Kelly: Your 2K time is above average for light and heavyweights your age. For lightweights only, your time is in the Top-25%.

Rowing: Colleges, lightweight programs, college crew
lightweight programs, college crew, lightweight men: Hi Jeff: Though you are a bit below the average height of rowers in college, your erg times are so good (Top 10% for lightweight men your age) that you may still be recruited.

Rowing: Crew, high school girls, water experience
high school girls, water experience, varsity level: Hi Leo: I m missing a bit of information here, like what is her age, weight and on-water experience.

grade point averages, guidance counselor, lightweight women: Hi Jennifer: As you probably know, your 2K time is well above average for lightweight women your age (Top 5-10%).

Rowing: Erg, lightweight programs, light weights
lightweight programs, light weights, mean time: Hi Warren: For college aged (19-29) lightweights, your time is below the mean time of 7:07 and the average time of 7:14. However, a person can make a boat over someone with a better 2K, if their on-water technique is superior. All things considered, most...

Rowing: Erg scores, max capacity, moot point
max capacity, moot point, splits: Jeff: I guess this is a bit time-late as you already did your piece. To be honest, it s really impossible to advise someone to exceed their max capacity. Who am I to tell you to go at a 1:40, when your last 2K splits were 1:43.8. Whether you do 6:55 or 6:50...

Rowing: Erg times, college crew, water experience
college crew, water experience, senior year: Hi Alex: I hate to say this, but are you male or female? If you are male, it is a bottom-15% time for lightweights your age. All I would say to you is that with training, experience and perseverance, your 2K will greatly improve over time. If you...

Rowing: erg score, stroke rate, split time
stroke rate, split time, 1km: Hi Claire: That s a very fast 1K for your age. You are in the Top-20%. You should try a 2K because that is the better measure of rowing potential. I recommend you lower your stroke rate to 44 or less. You will be more efficient and have a lower time...

Rowing: erg score, high school freshman, yale camp
high school freshman, yale camp, boathouse row: Hi Again: My gut answer is to choose the Penn camp. Here s why: - Philadelphia (my hometown) has much more cultural activities and things to do than New Haven. - You will be at the famous Boathouse Row, which is an experience all to itself. - You...

Rowing: First four, muscular legs, freshman year
muscular legs, freshman year, time states: Hi Kylie: Your question is detailed and comprehensive. I think with all factors considered, unless the Senior 4 is not racing well and you are 100% convinced that you can make it move faster, I would just be content on stroking the JV8 this year. The...

Rowing: my former coach, good luck, former coach
good luck, former coach, bearing: Hi Bailey: This is not a good situation. If the new coach is that influenced by the old coach, then who s in charge? The good news is that the past has no bearing on how you row in the present. So the simplest solution is to train hard and row your best....

Rowing: Good freshman erg time?, race experience, lightweights
race experience, lightweights, good luck: Hi Tyler: It s a good score considering your weight and experience. It s a second or two above the mean (average) time for 14-15 year old male lightweights per the Concept II database. With 10-20 more pounds of muscle and more race experience under your...

Rowing: good erg times, meter splits, split time
meter splits, split time, boats: Hi Kelly: I don t know your daughter s weight or 2K score, which would give me better information to answer your question. But based on her 500 meter splits in the 1500, she is above average for women her age -- in the Top-40%. There are many factors that...

Rowing: Lightweight Rowing, ways to lose weight, cereal
ways to lose weight, cereal, calories: Hi Kate: I generally don t like to answer questions on weight control as I am not a doctor. That said, the ways to lose weight are: 1) burn more calories; 2) eat less. What s worked for me of late is that I am skipping breakfast and only eating 2 meals...

Rowing: Lightweight SPM, water races, stroke rate
water races, stroke rate, team mates: Hi Riley: This is more of a strategy question. The correct answer to what stroke you choose on the erg should solely be based on what stroke gives you your best 2K time. There s no point in going up and down the slide on the erg as fast as you can if you...

Rowing: Too late too little to compete?, indoor rower, muscle endurance
indoor rower, muscle endurance, physical shape: Hi Joel: It is impossible to compare results from different rowing machines. You really need to try a 2K piece on a Concept II erg to determine where you stand. I d say you have the physical potential to do well in rowing. Your height is perfect. Your...

Rowing: Pre-high school, school rowers, head start
school rowers, head start, current time: Hi Steen: Based on yout current time, I project you to hit about 6:45 by junior year.

Rowing: Rowing, college dormitory, ivy league schools
college dormitory, ivy league schools, school crew: Hi Again, Zany: Well that clears things up. Sorry for being testy on my reply.

Rowing: Rowing, lifting weights, spring racing
lifting weights, spring racing, protein rich foods: Hi Jane: I don t know your age or whether you are in high school or college. It matters in my answer.

Rowing: Where to row, high school girl, rowing clubs
high school girl, rowing clubs, crew team: Hi Again, Sammi: I didn t mean to be so curt on my first reply. But I received a previous question just before yours that sounded like a prank and I thought you were pranking on me too. I m not from Boston, and I haven t competed in a while. Riverside...

Rowing: Scholarships, college entrance exam, college crew
college entrance exam, college crew, academic goals: Hi S Ellen: Your rowing resume is sensational. I m sure a major program would like to have you on their crew.

Rowing: Splits, split time, erging
split time, erging, rowers: Hi Magdalene: The average time for women your weight and age is around 8:02. But a lot of those women are also competitive and experienced rowers. So you are progressing quite nicely. A time of 7:45 or better is a good goal, which I think you can achieve...

varsity boats, google search, varsity eight: Hi Again: I did a Google search of the type of stories you are looking for, but none really jumped up at me like the one I sent before.

Rowing: I want/ need to improve!, smart diet, water performance
smart diet, water performance, stregnth: Hi Leah: It s kind of tricky in your case. The single best way to improve erg time is to add muscle weight. This is not only because of stregnth; it also has to do with the physics of the ergometer that favors heavier lowers over lighter ones. It s kind...

Rowing: Yawning & Fatigue, grueling session, mental toughness
grueling session, mental toughness, southern hemisphere: Hi Dan: You have to understand that rowing workouts are very grueling and take a physical and mental toll on my body.

Rowing: 2k, freshman girl, impressive entrance
freshman girl, impressive entrance, water experience: Hi Sarah: That s a great time. I don t think your 2K would be an issue if you got accepted. Your on-water experience also needs to be very impressive. Entrance requirements for Cambridge can be found at the link below: http://www.cam.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/requirements/...

Rowing: 2k, water performance, crew team
water performance, crew team, ergometer: Hi Valerie: Losing weight to lower your erg time is not that cut and dry. Based on the physics of the ergometer, if a 175 pound rower and 150 pound rower are in equal condition, the 175 pound rower will always pull the better time. It has to do with physics...

Rowing: 2k, novice rowers, lightweights
novice rowers, lightweights, freshmen: Hi Abby: Your time is a few seconds slower than the average time for girls your age (8:48). Your friend s time is in the bottom 20%. I think you and your friend can cut several seconds in the short term since you are still learning to row. Good...

Rowing: 2k erg time, college scholarship, boys state
college scholarship, boys state, junior boys: Hi Zack: Your erg score is in the middle of the pack for lightweights your age. Maybe gaining 10 pounds of muscle would help lower your time.

Rowing: 2k Time- College?, 17 year old girls, time college
17 year old girls, time college, best time: Hi Sarah: Your time is in the Top 5% and is only 20 seconds of the world s best time for 15-17 year old girls.

Rowing: 2k time, lightweight program, weight train
lightweight program, weight train, measurable gains: Hi Again: You need a 6:50 whether you weight 145 or 175. That s about the time for an above average (55th to 60th percentile) heavyweight rower. You can be lightweight and still make the heavyweight boat if you can outperform other heavyweights. As I...

Rowing: 2k time for Lightweight?, median time, percentile
median time, percentile, naomi: Hi Naomi: Your time is right around the world average (8:33.5), based on times posted on the Concept II website. The median time is 8:30, so you are slightly below the 50th percentile. While colleges are not going to beat your door down to recruit you...

Rowing: 2k times, scholarship opportunity, lightweight division
scholarship opportunity, lightweight division, colleges and universities: Hi Tim: Your 2K is just a few seconds off the average lightweight time posted by lightweight rowers your age (7:15). While a 10-15 second goal will put you above average, you need a time of like 6:45 or better to get recruited solely on erg potential alone....

Rowing: 2ks, crew training, contraptions
crew training, contraptions, concept ii ergometer: Hi Diana: I can commiserate with you. I used to dread doing ergometer pieces when I rowed in college. I dreaded the fact that I was going to be in agony. I dreaded the fact that my time was probably going to be crappy and hold me back from making a good...

Rowing: College rowing scholarship, football scholarships, prospective coaches
football scholarships, prospective coaches, athletic background: Hi Again: While your SAT score isn t going to get you into Harvard and Princeton, who wants to go there anyway.

Rowing: College rowing/training stuff, intense workouts, stress fractures
intense workouts, stress fractures, rowing training: Hi Again: I d say if you were just using the erg for conditioning and exercise, the Model B would be fine. But if you are serious about competing, you should have the most current ergometer, especially if you feel you can pull a better 2K with the Model D....

Rowing: college crew, incoming freshmen, college coach
incoming freshmen, college coach, coxswains: Hi Nancy: The criteria for coxswains getting recruited differs from oarsman. Many smaller college programs just look for small incoming freshmen with no experience and train them. Better programs are more selective and will recruit experienced coxswains....

Rowing: Erg Score, stroke rate, cutting time
stroke rate, cutting time, increase strength: Hi Manolo: Your time is slightly better than the average (7:30) for lightweights your age.

Rowing: Lane 6, strawberry mansion, schuylkill river
strawberry mansion, schuylkill river, lane markers: Hi Tom: Interesting question. I raced on the Schuylkill for many years. I would say that as long as your coxswain is competent, lane assignment should be a wash. In a 2000 meter race, Lane 6 has a tactical advantage in that the starting line is staggered...

Rowing: Lightweight Girls, fruits and vegetables, starchy foods
fruits and vegetables, starchy foods, mechanical advantage: Hi Cara: A time in the 8:36 to 8:38 range is average for 15-16 year old lightweight girls.

Rowing: Lwt Highschool Rowing, second spring, spring season
second spring, spring season, good luck: Hi Nick: Your time puts you in the top-one-third among lightweights your age. The mean 2K is 7:17. If you want to crack 7:00 in the short-term, you ll need to come off the start and first 40 at 1:40 or better. From there, it is a question of hanging tough...

Rowing: Novice Women, novice women, race experience
novice women, race experience, novices: Hi Olivia: Your time puts you in the Top-30% for girls your age. In general, novices can see good gains in their 2K times, as it is reasonable that you can get down to 7:50 by the end of the school year. As you get more experienced, it gets a bit tougher...

Rowing: the pull through, racing shell, intuitive answer
racing shell, intuitive answer, water experience: Hi Mark: The most intuitive answer is that while the erg is a good measure of rowing potential, there are numerous cases of rowers pulling great erg scores but not helping a boat move faster. Rowing in the erg and rowing in the water are different. I m not...

Rowing: Rowing Heavyweight- Recruitment, bench mark, varsity boat
bench mark, varsity boat, crew program: Hi Riley: This is a very difficult question to answer. I wish there was software where you can enter you erg times and GPA and medals won, then the software spits out a school for you. I will do my best to guesstimate the erg ranges that major college...

Rowing: Rowing scholarship, lightweight programs, junior nationals
lightweight programs, junior nationals, scholarship money: Hi Danielle: Your time is better than average (8:30) for lightweights your age. I think if you gained 10 to 12 pounds of muscle, you could get your time down to the 8:00 zone, which would make you more recruitable. To get a scholarship, your grades and...

ivy league college, lifting weights, league coach: Hi Alex: To get into an Ivy League college, you must have the grades. Period. You need an A average and you need a great SAT score.

unc chapel hill, college crew, water experience: Hi Bethany: Your 2K is in the Top-10% for your age group.

time size, 3 things, regattas: Hi James: I think you have great potential for recruitment be a U.S. or Canadian college by Senior year. Your above-average 2K time, size and experience all work in your favor. I d say by Senior, you will need 3 things to be in contention for a rowing...

smaller boats, sculls, wasting my time: Hi Will: Your time is a bit better than the average time for lightweights your age (7:05). So you have potential. While tall is preferred to short in rowing, if you are content to row bow, you can row for 95% of the competitive crews out there. If you...

Rowing: Technique- help!, water sweep, deep in the water
water sweep, deep in the water, oar: Hi Meghan: Digging deep is never good and increases the chance of catching a deadly crab. Most of the time it is something you are doing wrong, but sometimes, the set of the boat has a lot to do with rowers digging deep. The good news is that it is correctable....

Rowing: Catching a crab, career ends, oar
career ends, oar, bad luck: Hi Courtney: Let me tell you a story. In my very first race, I caught a monstrous crab which nearly broke my nose, stopped the boat dead and caused our crew to finish in last. I was emotionally devastated and nearly quit crew right there. But I couldn...

Rowing: crew, academic workload, ivy league school
academic workload, ivy league school, athletic scholarship: Hi Wanda: I d say you need a total package to be a serious candidate for an athletic scholarship for crew.

Rowing: Possible scholarship, race experience, rowers
race experience, rowers, good chance: Hi Ben: Your erg time is in the Top-10% for rowers you age. That will get a coach s attention. You might need some more race experience and a few medals to prove that you can row as well on the water as you do on the erg (some can t). Your SAT scores will...

Rowing: 2k erg times, regattas, 5 months
regattas, 5 months, losing weight: Steph, According to the Concept 2 Website you are a little worse than average, however being new that is OK. I think a good time would be breaking 8, but I think you should shoot for sub 8, which would be fairly solid. While lightweight rowing is very...

Rowing: 2k ergo, heavy weights, core strength
heavy weights, core strength, heavy weight: Hey Rob, That is a big leap, so it will take lots of work. For starters, I would recommend that you gain about 20 pounds, because you are a very light heavy weight. With more weight, I would work on lifting very heavy weights, because to make such a change,...

Rowing: How do I compare to other girls my size and expirience?, novice, good luck
novice, good luck, annie: Jackie, For a Novice I would say you are mediocre, but maybe a little closer to the good side.. That is a lot of improvement, however the same amount of improvement comes to many in the first 1 to 2 years of rowing. In my opinion, you are not to short. You...

Rowing: Lightweight Girls 6k, lightweight, 6k
lightweight, 6k, 2k: Jesse, I am going to guess that you are a lightweight rower, or trying for the lightweight 8, so an 8:28 is an average 2k. It is pretty difficult to gage what a 6k would be based off of a 2k, but in my experience you normally add 7 to 10 splits, so...

Rowing: Lightweight Girls Recruit, sophomore year, regional championship
sophomore year, regional championship, gpa: Abby, It sounds like you have had a very successful lightweight career.

2k, lightweight, college: Hi! While I mainly specialize in girl s rowing I ll take a stab! I think 6:49 is AMAZING for a lightweight male. You should keep doing what you re doing, and to be very solid I would shoot for sub 7:35! You are definitely on the right track, but no...

Rowing: Lightweight scholarship, lightweight programs, lightweight program
lightweight programs, lightweight program, couple questions: Megan, If I were you I would try and break 8, to get yourself in the top 10% girls lightweight 2ks, and for your 6k I would try for a 2:07 split to be competitive.
