HALF AWAKE?

Compared to what we ought to be, we are only half awake. We are making use of only a small part of our physical and mental resources.The human individual thus lives far within his limits. He possesses power of various sorts which he habitually fails to use.

Where is the damper set during races? Is there a damper setting where I will perform best?

There is no required damper setting for races or time trials on the Concept 2 Indoor Rower. You are free to choose the setting you prefer so long as you do not change it once you have started to row.
Preferred damper setting is highly subjective, depending on body type, conditioning level, and rowing style. Our surveys of top finishers at the CRASH-B Sprints indicate most excel at the low to mid range damper settings (between 1 and 6). Suggestion: once per week for one month do a 2000 meter time trial at race pace. On week one, set the damper at 2, for week 2, set it at 4 and so on. Pick the damper setting that allows you to perform best.
The electronic monitor on the Concept 2 Indoor Rower is not simply a revolution or speed counter: it measures rate of acceleration, max. speed, and rate of deceleration of the flywheel on each stroke and recalibrates between strokes. Therefore it calculates power produced/distance rowed precisely regardless of damper setting. Hence competitors are able to choose a damper setting according to their personal preference.

ONAGA CHRISTMAS OPEN


On the eve of a new year, Coach Rut, Logan Rutherford and Boot Camp Fitness student Dean Brendel competed in the Onaga Christmas Open. This annual weightlifting event drew competitors from as far away as St. Louis, St. Joseph and Wichita.

Dean finished third in the 105+ weight class of the masters division. This was Dean's first competitive meet.

Logan won the Junior division, despite a difficult first semester in college and losing 6kg of body weight his first semester.

Coach Rut equalled his competive total from July with a 98kg snatch, 125kg clean and jerk for a 223 total. This was good enough for a .3kg total overall victory in the masters division.
