    I think it's just how long I row for that is the problem. I row for 30 minutes a time and it's once you get above 20 minutes the blisters start. I have tried to relax the grip but it does not make much difference. I actually have gloves just for rowing now and they stop the issue totally so not too worried now.

    I can recommend these gloves for rowing.

    I have soft office hands but I don't seem to get rowing blisters. I don't know what I'm doing to avoid them though.

    Swam a mile (64 lengths) in around 34 minutes today

    I occasionally row a 10k which takes 40-odd mins and I never get blisters. I grip the 'oar' fairly lightly too.

    If you're not gripping on for grim death, are you twisting your hands as you pull or something?

    Not sure really. I will have to have a closer look tonight and see if I can work out what I am doing. I don't mind the gloves anyway.

    Question: is it best to stay under your calorie goal and do no exercise, or go massively fucking over and eat a million cream buns but do a fuckton of exercise?

    Today I swam a mile in 29 minutes dead. Guess I should have set a more difficult target!

    Go for 15 minutes, that should keep you busy for a while.

    Good session today, finished off with some circuits and a new PR, also aren't overhead squats a bit cheeky. Now off to play Revengeance and a lazy weekend

    Had a burger whilst watching the you tube video from the 35 years of football videogames thread :)

    Just found out the joys of pause squats and Timed squats. Anyone who wants to build up endurance will love timed squats. Probably my joint favourite workout next to my power clean/front squat/press/back squat circuit

    I don't think I've ever enjoyed working out, or loved an exercise. Some of you people are broken. I've had routines that I hate less than others though.

    I genuinely love training, I consider that weird though.

    Is the pause at the bottom of the movement, or when stood back up? ;)

    I enjoy the ache after a good run, showered, sat down feet up, cuppa tea.

    Ahhh.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    @ascue

    Well for a change I did the pause at bottom of the movement :)

    Timed squats great beast on your cardio, even the gym staff were giving me strange looks. Do the 10 reps, add more weight, do another set of 10 and repeat. 6min 30 sec workout then collapsing onto the floor trying to get your breath back

    I've been reading the kinobody fitness website and it's got me interested in playing with my workout a bit, incorporating reverse pyramids for my compound movements.

    Anyone know anything wrong with anything he's talking about, generally? It all seems to make a lot of sense to me but I'm a layman, relatively speaking.

    After, sure... but that's another story. Job well done and all that.

    I know certain people love weight training, but I put those into the same group as people who enjoy being bound with ballgags and whipped.

    For me training is a means to an end, nothing more.

    Pretty poor analogy tbh, I understand you're saying they are masochistic - but at least weight training is improving yourself.

    There is an element of masochism to it though, isn't there!

    I think that's probably why I enjoy the more endurance based things like running and cycling more than anything else.

    Along with the benefit to my fitness and stress release by focusing on something fully for an hour plus and blowing the cobwebs away, I enjoy the development of the mental strength to keep going, even when you are knackered /it hurts.

    There's also the added bonus of the endorphin rush after, and as mrpon says, the healthy glow and satisfaction of a job well done with your feet up and a cup of tea/coffee.
