Wall-mounted Vasa Ergometer much more ski-like

Greg and I met to set personal bests on the Vasa Ergometer after I mounted it on the wall. Here's the results:

Fixed Distance Time

100m Doublepole 3 1:16 1:06
100m Single Pole 3 1:24 1:20
Fixed Time Distance
Doublepole - 3 minutes 1 231m 235m
Doublepole - 4 minutes 3 319m -
Single Pole - 4 minutes 1 260m -

So what's the difference between using the Vasa Erg as it ships (horizontally) versus mounting it on the wall? Everything! Our times came down because we could use out abs; the motion felt MUCH more ski-like; we could get our heart rates up higher. And it was easier to see the power meter.

We meet again this coming Thursday, July 12 at 6:30pm if anyone else is in the Wixom, MI area.
