Rowing WOD 11/21: “King of the Erg” – And the Winner is! …

Chest to the deck!

Rowing WOD 11/21:

“King Of The Erg”

2 Athletes Compete At A Time:

5 Burpee Erg Jumps

300m Row (800m Max)

Win by 5m!  Winner Stays On!

Do you have what it takes to step up to the plate and execute when it counts?  Sport provides us an opportunity to compete and test ourselves and others.  By learning to push someone else, we learn to push ourselves. Don’t let your competitor off easy.  Push them.

And Get Up!

Today’s Rowing WOD should be performed with at least three people, but can be a good challenge for the whole gym.  All you need is two ergs.  On 3,2,1 Go! Two athletes begin by doing 5 burpees (jumping over the erg rail each time).  Then the first athlete to get to 300m on the erg wins.  If the race is close, the first athlete to pull ahead by 5 meters after the 300m mark wins.  If no one takes it by 800m the competition is a draw and both athletes get off.  Otherwise the winner stays on to challenge the next athlete in line.  Repeat as long as time allows or until there are no challengers left.

Post your “King Of The Erg” and the best Average 500m Split of the day to comments.

****** And The Winner Is! ********

Last Saturday athletes from both CrossFit Boston and North Shore CrossFit pulled their first 2k of the winter season and took part in the Renegade Rowing League.  The league will consist of a 2k every month leading up to CRASH-B’s.  The results of last Saturday can be found below.  The fastest competitors in each event won a Sculling Lesson on the Water with Coach Pat.  Think you have what it takes?  Then get ready for the second race of the Renegade Rowing League to be held on Saturday, December 15th at 8am.  Email Coach Pat at if you’re interested in having your gym join the fun.

Congrats to all competitors!
