Today’s Rowing WOD is an opportunity for athletes to get a taste of what Regional Competitors will be fighting through on Saturday morning. Rather than throw a ton of volume at you, I wanted to give everyone a chance to move quickly with high skill. Warmup each movement and focus on a couple of cues that will dial in the skill of the movement and make it easier in full blown competitions like Regionals.
Feel suspension in the legs for the 100m Row and see if you can finish it in 10 strokes. For the Wall Balls focus on the timing of the hips and legs so that you save your energy and can remain accurate. Hit that target every time. During the chest to bar pull ups try to find a rhythm that can be maintained and controlled for all 6 reps unbroken. In the pistols be smooth without hesitating at the top or bottom. During the Kettle Bell Snatches anticipate where the bell is going and be quick with your hand as you punch through to meet it at the top without banging your wrist.
Practice the transitions in between each movement. Get technical, move well, push the pace, and have fun. Should be a quick little burner!
