It has begun! I’m joining in with the rest of CrossFit Boston on a month-long transformation challenge. We’ve measured our body composition and tested a benchmark workout (which happens to include rowing). In honor of making changes and being a better version of ourselves, I’ve decided to unroll the Renegade Rowing Training Plan one day at a time.
Over the last two years I’ve mentioned creating Renegade Rowing Standards and a Training Plan for both rowers and athletes interested in becoming rowers. I still have a lot to learn and there will definitely be adjustments along the way, but I believe I have wrapped my mind around the Sport of Rowing and Constantly Varied, Functional Movement, Performed at High Intensity to the point that the Renegade Rowing Training Plan is ready to be put to the test.
Over the coming months I’ll be posting more than just a RowingWOD to give you everything that you need to be your best self. I’ll do my best to explain different parts of the training plan as I go and provide video blogs/examples as time allows. Eventually I will have a .pdf of the Renegade Rowing Training Plan that everyone can take home and enjoy, but for now you’ll have to experience it with me as it gets posted. That’s right, I’m trying to do everyday of the RRTP right along with you. Expect to see my results for the day posted to the comment section of each blog post.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all crush it in the coming months, especially as we approach the second race of the Renegade Rowing League on January 25th and CRASH-B’s on February 16th. Get after it now by hitting todays Strength WOD.
The focus of today is Strength, so be sure to get in the Strength WOD of 3x10RM Deadlifts. If time allows, choose the blocks that will help you improve as an athlete. If you have enough time for all three blocks then attack them all!
Give us your best and share your results and experience to comments!
