      Depends on what I'm doing. If I'm going to try to do the fastest 1000m I can, then of course I'm cranking that bitch to 10. Incidentally, that's almost all I do on these machines.

      I do gay, and then I do RPE6 for 30 minutes. What of it?

      You literally doing it wrong.
      >On a bicycle, a high gearing will feel slow and sluggish to start. It is difficult to get the pedals at a high revolutions per minute until the wheel is spinning. This style of cycling takes a lot of muscle. Few cyclists would opt for the hardest gear for an entire race—which is why a damper setting of 10 is rarely (if ever) recommended
      >High damper and drag settings may lead to injury, since greater force is required to remove the “tank” of air from the flywheel each stroke—especially on the first strokes.
      >Rowing is cardiovascular; lower damper settings best mimic the sport.
      >Very low damper settings (like 1) require the athlete to be very quick and light at the catch.
      >A damper setting of 3-5 is recommended because it provides a comfortable platform for the start and an effective “gearing” for most workouts.
      >A damper setting of 3 is most appropriate for longer workouts.
      >A damper setting of 5 is most appropriate for shorter workouts.

        Get your frail, woman like, bitch body out of here. It has 10 on the machine for a fucking reason, cunt

          The older and dirty the machine is the higher you need to put the fly wheel to hit the correct drag factor consistently. A bike has higher gears as well but you'd be a moron to use them when climbing a hill.

            If they wanted me to treat the knob on this machine like I do the gears on a bike they would have put it somewhere I could adjust it mid-workout.

        Never been injured, damper setting of 5 feeling uniroinically like I'm pulling an empty chain not attached to anything. I can only realistically see myself dropping to maybe 6 or 7 if I plan to be rowing for more than 10 minutes.

        shits not the same as a fucking bike. i cycle a lot and of course its in a mid gear unless going uphill, the row machine has barely any resistance at all even at 10 and honestly i cant even fathom going lower. i sometimes do 30 minutes at 10 and even that feels like bullshit cardio compared to 30 minutes normal cycling

        The machines are never maintained well enough to go by damper setting
        You need to adjust it and check the drag factor and be at around 110-130

          The question is, for someone who isn't an athlete does drag factor / training for "Real water" even matter?

      >add more air for the flywheel to have to spin through
      >this allegedly does not ALSO increase resistance, it just "make ur muscle more tired"
      All this sounds like is 10 makes it take more effort to get the wheel spinning, but once it's already spinning there's no downside. I truly don't get it.

    I dont even know the feeling of sub 10, I've always cranked it to the max because at first I thought its the intensity of the air that comes out, so I just want to feel more fresh, l8ke a sea breeze as I row the ship with my mates.

    I've found I like a drag factor of 130, which seems to line up with general standards. Folks running it at a 10 for 3 minutes and yanking their back into oblivion don't seem to understand the point of a rowing machine, unfortunately.

    Also, just tried rating higher on my sprint intervals and it felt alright. Gonna try to start pushing the rate so I can sit at a 30 for my 5k and 36 for my 2k and see how it goes.

      These higher rates are really helping me out. With this workout I'm hoping I can break a 19 minute 5k when I attempt it next week.

    Is 10 supposed to be the easiest or hardest. I usually have it on 10 because thats what its always on, doesnt seem very hard though.
