Rowing WOD 9/11:
10 x 2min On, 1min Off
5k Pace or Faster
Be Consistent or Negative Split Each Piece
Any WOD over 15 minutes becomes a test of your endurance and stamina, especially if it’s a monostructural WOD with just one exercise. For those athletes focused more on running, swimming, or biking this can be a good WOD to really keep the intensity up while improving that endurance and stamina.
Today’s Rowing WOD is an interval workout aimed at pushing your ability to go hard for a whole 5k, whether it’s on the water, on the erg, or in some other sport. Set the monitor for 2min of work and 1min of rest. During the 1min of rest continue to paddle lightly at 16-18 strokes per minute, this will help you recover, get faster for the next interval, and fine tune your muscle memory of an ideal stroke. Even towards the end, as fatigue sets in, focus on good form during the piece and on the paddle. Your goal should be to hold a 5k split or better every piece. If you’ve never done a 5k, a 5k average split tends to be 5-7 seconds slower than your 2k split.
