ROW CAPACITY

3 Rounds:

21/15 Calorie Row, Rest :30s

15/10 Calorie Row, Rest 2:00

Total time includes all rest periods, except the final 2:00 rest in the third round. Given how work is completed by that third and final calorie row, score is the time on the clock at that point. Given how the rower monitors stop counting soon after we stop pulling, use a clock to keep track of rest times and total time.

“Cindy Got Jacked”

For Time: 
5 Rounds of “Cindy”
30 Overhead Squats (135/95)
1,000 Meter Row

In this chipper workout, athletes should choose a weight on the bar that they could complete 20+ unbroken overhead squats when fresh. Within the workout, this is ideally completed in no more than 3 sets. One round of “Cindy” consists of 5 Pull-ups, 10 Push-ups, and 15 Air Squats. If short on rowers, stagger heats by 5 minutes to avoid getting backed up on the machines.

Rest 3 Minutes Between Rounds

A simple, but effective combination of running and rowing intervals today. Athletes will Row 500 Meters and Run 400 Meters, resting 3 minutes between each of the three rounds. Their score is the cumulative time (including rest) it takes them to complete the three rounds. If unable to run, complete one of the following:

Mano y Mano

Class Divides into 2 Teams:
3 Rounds:
Team 1: Assault Bike (Team Score)
Team 2: 400 Meter Prowler Push

If Teams of 2-4 Each: 1 Bike + Prowler
If Teams of 5-7 Each: 2-3 Bikes + Prowlers
If Teams 8-10 Each: 4 Bikes + Prowlers

Today we will randomly divide the class into two teams. The workout involves two stations: a bike station and a prowler push station. Team 1 will begin on the assault bike and try and accumulate as many calories as possible, switching out as they see fit. The other team is out pushing prowler sleds for 400 meters. The weight on the sled should be a moderate load that allows teams to run, but not light enough where they easily sprint. As with the bike station, the team on the sled may break up the 400 meters as they see fit, even having multiple athletes pushing one sled at the same time. Once the team with the sled returns and is fully inside the gym together, teams will switch stations. Each team will bike and push the sled three times a piece, with the score being total number of cumulative calories across the three rounds.

Coaches Choice

“Anchored Down”

5 Rounds, On the 4:00:
30 Air Squats
20/14 Calorie Row
10 Lateral Rower Burpees

Every four minutes, athletes will complete one round of “Anchored Down” and rest until the next interval begins. Rounds begin on the 0:00, 4:00, 8:00, 12:00, and 16:00. The score today is the slowest of the five rounds. If short on rowers, stagger the second group two minutes behind. These rounds will begin on the 2:00, 6:00, 10:00, 14:00, and 18:00. The goal here is to find a fast pace that athletes can see themselves maintaining over the five rounds.

Not looking to hold the support on the rings to failure, but rather to a challenging degree. Use band assistance as required to ensure we can accomplish at a minimum 10s per set. Rest as needed between sets, but aim to keep it below 90 seconds.

For Time:
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1:
Clean and Jerks (115/80)
30 Double Unders After Each Set

Athletes should choose a weight on the bar today that they are capable of completing 15+ unbroken clean and jerks when fresh. Within the workout, this should also be a weight that allows them to cycle the barbell for multiple repetitions each set. Following the clean and jerks, athletes will complete complete double unders or a double under variation. This equals a total of 300 repetitions if done prescribed. If this is a large cumulative number for athletes, we can think about brining the number down after each set, or competing 60 single unders.
