Strength and Conditioning WOD:

“Duxbury Helen” – 3 Rounds For Time

  • 250m Row
  • 21 Air Squats
  • 12 Push Ups

Today’s focus is aerobic conditioning and mental strength.  Get in some good skill work to warmup with a 10min erg.  Be sure to warmup the air squat and push up as well.  Then attack the Strength and Conditioning WOD.  I created this WOD for the Duxbury Rowers working with Renegade Rowing on the weekends.  They don’t have a ton of equipment, but they have each other and that’s all you need to push harder than ever before.  Go hard for the start and finish, but be smooth and efficient through the bulk of the work.  Focus on breathing and consistent pace.  At the end of the day this will take about the same time as a race and allow you to mentally dig deep and push yourself harder.  In the end it’s all in your head.  How hard, how far, how fast can you push yourself?

Take quality strokes and have fun getting after it.
