After finishing my rowing session I messed with the dial that controls the vent on the side of the Concept 2 fan body. Every time I have rowed previously I have had that set to 10, assuming a higher number meant more difficulty. However when I looked at the side of the fan I noticed if you slide the dial to 1 it covers up about 50% of the vent space.
I wondered if I had it backwards this entire time. maybe covering the vents makes it much harder and all along I have been pulling in EZ mode? I slid the dial to 1, strapped in and pulled a few times. Immediately I knew for once, I had it right the first time. The resistance level was much lower at the lower vent setting.
