All the training plans have been designed exclusively for RowPro by world-class training guru Jon Ackland of Performance Lab International.
Direct PM3 or PM2+ connection
RowPro has a direct 2-way connection from your PC to the Performance Monitor on your Concept2 Indoor Rower. This enables RowPro to set up and sequence you through highly effective training workouts without you ever needing to push any buttons on the Performance Monitor, plus it enables your results, including splits, intervals and even stroke data to be logged automatically in your RowPro rowing log.
RowPro has true 3D on-water rowing animation that tracks your stroke action and shows you excellent stroke technique as you row every stroke. Just put your RowPro PC on one side of the flywheel and a mirror on the other side, then match your stroke timing and technique to the on-screen rower as you row. It's like having an Olympic rowing coach beside you while you row.
RowPro has an on-screen PM twin that's easily visible even in low light conditions, plus charts that track your heart rate and pace and show target bands. This enables you to stay in the correct heart rate and stroke rate bands that match the type of training you're doing, to ensure you get the intended training effect.
Personal digital rowing log
After each row, your session results, splits and even stroke data are all automatically recorded in your own personal digital rowing log in RowPro. From there you can view your session results in table or chart form, print them out, upload them to the Indoor Sport Services Online Ranking, and track your cumulative training metres.
RowPro enables you to compare two similar rows to see what's changed. Split-by-split comparison charts show how much your pace and heart rate have improved over time, and expert training advice from Jon Ackland gives you the insight you need to adjust your training or correct performance issues.
You can upload results directly from RowPro to your Indoor Sport Services Online Logbook to participate in challenges or to contribute your meters to an online club like RowPro Rowers. From there you can send your best rows to the Indoor Sport Services Online Ranking, where other RowPro users can download them and use them to animate a boat in another lane, then compete with that boat stroke by stroke.
Top Olympic Rowing Coach Brian Hawthorne has worked with Digital Rowing graphics animators to create a precision 3D rowing animation that shows excellent stroke technique up close and in slow motion. While you watch and learn, you can read Brian's easy-to-follow expert coaching instructions covering the Catch, the Drive, the Finish, the Recovery and Stroke Rate. There simply isn't a better grounding in stroke technique available.
Now for some serious fun! RowPro enables you to race up to 3 competitors, each of which can be a smart pace boat, or one of your own past rows, or other people's past rows that you've downloaded from the Indoor Sport Services Online Ranking. Just think of the possibilities! What better way to prepare yourself for race day competition?
