Why do we train? Why do we compete? … Fun!
What makes training and competition fun? … Variety, Challenge, Training Partners, and Intensity!
Today’s Rowing WOD is opportunity to have a ton of fun pushing yourself and others through a variety of skilled movements while executing a game plan. I’d like you to challenge a training partner to this workout if at all possible. Talk to them about your 2k race plan and how you are going to execute it on this workout. Use the first round like it’s the first half of your next 2k and use the second round like it’s the second half of your next 2k. Get comfortable consistently pulling your 2k split under pressure. Be mentally strong and stay positive on every stroke and every rep. Remember to breathe deep after the row so you can fall into a rhythm and flow through the double unders. During the KB Snatches make sure you have an active shoulder at the top and keep your arm close to your ear. Use the hips to move the weight and punch through quickly as the weight becomes weightless so that you don’t bang the wrist. Dumbbell Snatches can be substituted for the KB Snatch if needed.
Post your time and average 500m splits for the 1k’s to comments!
