Todays Rowing WOD calls for Max Pressure and is a test of your ability to consistently perform at your highest intensity, something everyone strives for in developing elite fitness. Set the monitor for Intervals Variable and input 1,250m , 5:30 rest, 1,250m, 5:30 rest, 700m, 3:30 rest, 700m, 3:30 rest, 300m, 1:30 rest, 300m, 1:30 rest. Pick a 500m Split and a Stroke Rating you plan to hold for each distance. The first time you perform that distance execute that pace (split and SR) as consistently as possible. When you repeat the distance try to be even more consistent and go a little bit faster.
Remember, the goal is to row at max pressure for every piece. Focus on your split and stroke rate and row at high intensity with good form.
Post your average 500m splits to comments.
Did Wendler deadlift during rest intervals. Rest interval was a little long after 1st 300m piece. Hit proper rest for all others.
Just don’t seem to have the lungs lately.
Good splits Chris, the lungs will come with consistency. Keep hitting your workouts and try to fit in some longer pieces when you have the time.
