Weekly WOD Review 7/29/19

MONDAY Beyond the single, 500m, 1k, 2k, time trials, I think a great indicator of fitness are these exact distances repeated in the same session. We do multiple within-workout rowing efforts so I think this specific baseline will test 1.) how powerful you are and 2.) how much stamina and[…]

Weekly WOD Review 7/22/19

Monday This one is going to be a fun one! Today’s workout is essentially an interval-esque type workout. Personally, I love these type of workouts. For the most part, try and give as much effort as you can for each interval. 2:00 of rest is plenty of time to catch your breath[…]

Weekly WOD Review 5/20/19

Monday Chipper-esque workout for today. Push yourself to get as much work done in 18:00. You want to be working at about 75% effort for a majority of this workout, taking strategic breaks as to not allow your heart rate to elevate too much. Try and save some gas in[…]
