Row it away, row it away, row it away now

If you’re interested in participating in the rowing challenge but not familiar with the new-fangled computerized technology, here’s a tutorial Hector put together on how to set up / view your results for accurate reading:

Week 1:
6 ROUNDS:  1 MINUTE ON, 30 SECONDS OFF

You will row for 1 minute, then rest for 30 seconds and repeat this 6 Times In A Row

The workout will take you exactly 8:30 (the last rest period is excluded)

You may start with the flywheel spinning during the rest periods, also known as a “Rolling Start” (For example you can start rowing with 5 seconds left in your rest so that the flywheel is moving at full speed when the next round starts)

Watch the Video to make sure you set your Monitor up correctly using the Interval Time feature.

  • Score 1A: Combined Meters from Round 1 & 2
  • Score 1B: Total Meters from ALL 6 Rounds

You may redo this workout as many times as you like but you cannot combine your ‘best’ 1A score and ‘best’ 1B score. Both scores must come from the same attempt.

Using the below as an example: Score 1A would be 576m (284+292=576), Score 1B would be 1771 (284+292+298+297+293+307=1771)

You’ll find this screen in the memory section of your PM3, PM4, or PM5 Monitor

PM4

IMPORTANT: All participants MUST use the “INTERVALS: TIME” feature on a Concept 2 PM3, PM4 or PM5 monitor. Set the work interval for 1 minute and the “rest” interval at 30 seconds. For more information on how to set your Concept 2 PM monitor for time intervals, please watch the video or visit the Concept 2 website.
