No idea, but I’m curious why. Is this to simulate a rescue scenario?

we been doing it for a number of years now and it sucks supposed to measure your respitory endurance but it is biased. a lighter person gets more time than a heavy person females get huge advantage my time I score an 80 ish a females same age lighter but same time gets 114 ish percent. I am assuming you are using the concept 2 rower its what we use and what dps which is where this came from, buy one t is a good work out. only plus is its only less than 10 minutes and done.
i am cancelling my subscription, i am tired of your issues!

We have to do it as well, and it sucks! Seems to suck every bit of oxygen out of the room! I purchased a cheaper rowing machine on amazon to help keep me ready. I could not make myself pay what the concept 2 rowers cost. I do prefer the rowing machine over running though, easier on the knees, and like luv2brode stated ifs ober in 10 minutes or less!

I have a relative that has been using a Water Rower for quite a while and likes it. I almost decided to try a rower, but decided to stay with my Nordic Track cross country skier, the old style. I can get my pulse up higher that I ever could running.

We have concept 2s at work. Low impact so anyone with injuries can still get a good workout in. Watch a couple form videos, that goes a long way in not burning out one area too fast.
