Warmup

Rowling warmup, 3 rounds with burpee penalty

Rowing Skilz Review-this will be targeted stroke rate rowing, work on fast/strong leg drive and controlled return to the catch. Don’t get frustrated if you can’t hit exact ratings but spend each 2-minute block trying to ‘find the rate’. These should be easy to moderate intensity intervals with the damper set around 4-5. This is skill work preparing you for an all-out 500m row. The 500m is a benchmark test and should be a full effort, the damper can be increased, usually 6-7, stroke rate should be high, mid-30s or higher but still focusing on strong legs.
