Some of our best results are found when training at high intensity.  In order to develop as an athlete you’ll need to develop an ability to go hard and bring your “A” game.  Today’s Rowing WOD provides an opportunity for just that.  Set the monitor for 800m of work and 2 minutes of rest.  Use the first piece to practice the start of your 2k and the last to practice the finish.  There should be a focus on power per stroke and solid intensity across all five pieces.  Write down the splits you would like to hold (ex: 2:00, 2:03, 2:02, 2:01, 2:00) prior to starting and make a commitment to attack each piece and execute every stroke.  Know what mental cues you will go to when it gets tough – breath, legs down, sit tall, swing, smooth, breath…

Afterwards get in some good mobility and make sure you’re moving well and recovered for the Back Squats.  Give them all you’ve got.  I put in 13.1 in case you aren’t able to row or you have lots of time on your hand.  I’m really looking forward to retesting it, so have fun and get after it!
