Ep 140 - 3/2/1min x 5 Rowing Workout
Hit three increasing stroke rates and intensities over six minute intervals in this fantastic RowAlong workout
🚣5 x 6 minutes with 2 minute rests 🚣♀️
3 mins at 20 strokes per minute (2K+18 pace or 5-6/10 effort)
2 mins at 24 strokes per minute (2K+12 pace or 7/10 effort)
1 min at 28-20 strokes per minute (aim for 2K+5 or 9/10 effort)
❗ Take time to work on technique for the first 3 minutes, then feel how a faster stroke rate, and a more concentrated push from the legs is what you need to be able to hold 24spm and 2K+12 and then go fast for the last 1 minute. Aim for a little slower than your 2K average pace. You need to make sure you can hit ALL THE TARGETS through each of these intervals. ❗
But for the very last 1 minute - go as fast as you can.
🚥Either use Ergzone to pre-program your Concept2 monitor (search for RowAlong, and under the RA icon, pick RA90) or set as 5 x 6 minute intervals with 2 minutes rest - or a 38 minute timer and RowAlong with me. 🚥

🔵🔵🔵 SHOWING SUPPORT FOR ROWALONG 🔵🔵🔵
I've been asked a few times about the best way to support what I'm doing. Honestly, the best way is just to watch and subscribe using this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGYcAoZ9WTJriM9jZkXxoPg?sub_confirmation=1)
More views lead to more views - and I'm really just interested in getting more people on board to RowAlong with. (Make sure to click the notification bell to be alerted when I upload new workouts)
That said, I know that there are some people who want to show their support financially, and as much as I've shied away from giving out links to this before - I've been advised to at least provide the links - to stop someone spoofing me!! So....
But seriously - just keep watching, that's all I ask!!
This workout is provided as usual WITHOUT MUSIC. If you want music, why not load up another YouTube tab, or maybe Soundcloud and pick your own tunes. As always, follow me for stroke rate. And I'll keep you company for the row with training tips, technique tips, and my usual general waffle.

ℹℹℹℹℹℹ - 2K training paces are based on your current best performance to row 2000m. Set your monitor to 2000m and row it as fast as you can. When you're finished either look at the memory screen for that row, and note the Average /500m pace - or just divide your time by 4 to find that out.
For instance - if you rowed your 2000m in 8:20 - the average pace for 500m is 2:05. It doesn't matter if you started at 1:50 and then slowed down to 2:20 by the end - your average across the whole row is 2:05.
So when I give a pace guide saying "2K + 18 seconds" - that means that you take your 2K time, and add 18 seconds to it (in the above example, 2:05 + 18 = 2:23 pace.) Just be sure to set your monitor so it displays your /500m pace so you can stay on target.
Every time you think you're getting faster, rather than just arbitrarily changing the pace guide - do another 2000m test to find your current 2K average time - and then work from that. ℹℹℹℹℹℹ
