Words you don’t want to hear just after the warmup: “OK, 2K row!“. The majority of the time, I would rather spend class time on more involved coaching, and leave a relatively “simple” workout like that for people to do on their own. But how much better is it to do this as a group?
While the first wave attacked the ergs, the other half of class reviewed barbell technique. Again big thanks to Sara for helping coach.
After rowing (and a rest):
CLEAN AND JERK MAX REPS
30 SECONDS WORK/ 60 SECONDS REST
Scaled version for some off the newer crew followed the same format, but using the Thruster in place of Clean and Jerk.
Rowing times impressed me, Chris will be sub 7 soon (Andrew can now if he pushes it), and Dan looked strangely comfortable after posting a 6:47. Also impressive was the tenacity with which Dian, Laura, David and others who had never done this distance attacked it.
