Rowing Annie w/ Push Ups – For Time…

Keep good posture on the Double Under's!

500m Row
50 Double Unders
25 Push Ups
400m Row
40 Double Unders
20 Push Ups
300m Row

15 Push Ups
200m Row
20 Double Unders
10 Push Ups
100m Row
10 Double Unders
5 Push Ups

Today’s Rowing WOD is a great take on the classic Girl WOD Annie.  The rowing pieces are descending in length, so a good goal would be to hold the average 500m split that you row on the first 500m all the way through the rest.  If you can finish the last 100m in 10 strokes you got game!  Be sure to breathe and find a consistent rhythm for the double under’s and sit ups.

Last time we did Rowing Annie, Larry finished in 18 minutes all by his lonesome.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone join him and crush it this time.  I’ve substituted the push ups for the sit ups to give you guys a break from the sit ups we did on Wednesday.  I’m sure this version will be just as spicy.

Attack it and post your time to comments!

  1. 17:40
    Pushed hard on 500 meters…DUs are my goat along with many other movements. This time would have been longer, I think, if we did sit ups. Push ups went unbroken.

  2. I absolutely suck at double unders. I can barely do one. It’s a skill that I don’t have and usually avoid, as I really never cross-fitted seriously. It would have taken me hours to do this workout. So I bench pressed (I’ve been running a 531 for over a year now), practiced double unders for 15 minutes (I vow to practice them in my warm up every day), and rowed a 2k (7:05.1). I promise to hit the next DU wod!

    • Hey Graham, keep practing your double unders but during a wod if it calls for them try subbing singles. Either 2:1 or 3:1 ratio. Sorry Coach. Need to let you do the coaching. Won’t happen again. I’ll go row a 2k as punishment. 🙂

    • Glad to hear you’re committing to DU’s. If you ever need a scale for a movement you can shoot me an email or comment and I’ll do my best to get back to you. 3:1 is a good scale to really push you to learn DU so you’re not stuck doing singles all day 🙂 Keep up the good work Graham!
