The CrossFit-Live Podcast has a great interview with Peter Dreissigacker about the Concept II Ergometer. Peter provides a fairly technical discussion of how the machine works including the effects changes in damper settings have on the physics and workout. This is the best description I’ve found. The second part of the interview is with Angela Hart, a certified Concept II trainer.
The interview is also presented in two segments if you are concerned with the length ( 1:55 – 26 Meg ) of the interview.
This is well worth the listen! Quote of the interview – Peter describing the motion on the erg:
“…it’s kind of like a waltz.”
