I’ve been doing 95 percent of my training on the erg, with the rest as weights or going for runs. Steadily improving fitness with this approach. However, I rarely get to row on the water as I live in NYC, and going to the Pelham boathouse is difficult. However when I go visit my Dad in DC I get to row on the water with him.
I’m curious how well ergs translate to OTW fitness. If assuming my rowing form is okay, would I get totally smoked if I started training more seriously on the water?
