Concept2 dynamics: back to paddle

The dynamic RowErg is different from the D or E indoor rowing machine. It is mainly because the pedal board moves every time the athlete paddles, but the body is almost stationary. The dynamic model is a very effective training tool, which can provide a simulated body sensation closer to boating on the water. This kind of body feeling is quite obvious when returning to the paddle: when using the dynamic model, the athlete needs more effort to return the slide seat to achieve the correct posture, bend the legs, and prepare to lift the paddle.


Type D remains the mainstream training tool for houseboats. On the D-boat, the athlete is connected to the indoor rowing machine through the handle, which is connected to the transmission chain, which is in turn connected to the shock-absorbing rope that provides a gentle return force. This is why the handle is retracted and retracted. During the return of the paddle, even if it is very slight, you can feel the tension of the damping rope.

The dynamic model has a lower return force, so the rope tension feels smoother and softer. This is one of the biggest differences most people can feel: the return force when pulling the handle back to the lift position is minimal. This requires the athlete to pose to his body and bend his legs to a position sufficient to hold the paddles-of course, this is the same as when rowing on a boat. Athletes push their hands forward and then force their backs forward. Both of these actions will result in a movement towards the lift position. Only when the crotch and buttocks muscles work together can they lean forward.

The dynamic model is said to have a weight similar to that of a solo boat, while the D model is like a group boat. Single-person vessels require higher agility, while Type D's response is more similar to larger vessels. Dynamic models allow athletes to largely control the speed and sequence of returning paddles. On the boat, skilled back-propellers can increase the speed of the boat: when the blades are out of the water, the hull is also moving, maximizing the efficiency of the oars.

Physical preparation

The challenge with dynamic models is that athletes rely on strong muscle support to form a smooth paddle sequence. On type D, athletes generate a lot of kinetic energy when they release the paddle. In contrast, dynamic models require athletes to move without the help of shock-absorbing rope resilience. Dynamic models move around athletes, just like boats gliding under athletes' bodies, athletes need to use core muscles.

Bending posture

Without the help of shock-absorbing ropes, many athletes will find themselves in a dynamic style with different paddle positions. Often because the feeling of returning to the paddle is more cautious, paddling will reduce the "waste" force when lifting the paddle. Many athletes find that the naturally comfortable and comfortable paddle position is more stretchable on the dynamic model than on the D model. We recommend keeping your calves upright every time you make an oar. With dynamic models, you can pinpoint this pose. Users can (or have to) find this pose just as they find it when rowing on a boat.

The dynamic model is my personal indoor training choice; it's perfect for athletes who want to advance their skills while training on the water.
