A question for the rowing community:

when you see non-rowers erging with reckless abandon in the gym, do you say anything to them about improving their form? is this too self-righteous, or a service to those poor folks’ muscles?

  3. all-creatures-great-and-small answered: um actually the one time i did say something to somebody it was a boy about my age. turned out he was a novice on my team. i felt like an ass
  4. verdant-astrophe answered: I’ve actually never seen anyone on the ergs besides myself (I’m a college kid, though, so maybe it’s different at a regular gym).
  5. dreamingofthebluebox answered: I sit next to them and make it really obvious I’m doing it right haha

  7. doglets answered: I usually wait for them to be done and then i get on immediately after them and show ‘em how it’s done.
  8. atmosfere answered: no; i just let them be… but i still kills me inside.
