Slow your stroke rate to 20-21 s/m - you will learn how to row properly like that. Pull harder but slower. A mate of mine who is a very good rower showed me. He can cane me and he always pulls about 18-20 s/m! If you are going for a record, that will most certainly blow out to well over 30s/m as you get near the end.

I find resistance 10 only works for me doing sprints for anything longer than 1000m I get better results using a 7/8 setting. My stroke rate is normally 32-34 being 6ft tall.
How to set the damper is actually on the Concept2. On my PM3, I go INFORMATION/DRAG FACTOR.... check it out.

Yeah my drag factor is 142 on 7.

I tried rowing at 4 for 20spm- Doesnt work for my body or rowing style. Its not enough resistance and to slow for me.

I'll stick to what works for me I guess.
