Rowing is…

… one of my new favorite things to do.

Today I rowed 5000m in 19:38 and felt like a BOSS.

I had no idea I would like rowing this much but it’s a lot like swimming: you find your rhythm, focus on your breath and push yourself as close to the edge as you can for as long as you can. I found it painful and quite enjoyable.

And the shorter workout was nice. Last Friday Adam took me through the gauntlet. But to be fair he went through it, too. This was our workout:

1500m warmup row

10 minute Airdyne warm up  

10 minute weighted ball throws 

Warm up air squats and pushups 

30/30 interval goblet squats (5 minutes) 

30/30 interval kettlebell swings (5 minutes) 

Bucket pull (260 lbs.) – partner planks while you pull and then you switch 

One-footed kettlebell presses (20 reps) – partner walls sits while you press and then switch

Tabata thrusters for a finisher 

I didn’t feel like vomiting afterwards but I will admit that I slept like a baby that night.
