Coaching Tips: Row the 2000m as if it were it’s own workout and log your score for this as a separate benchmark. 2 mintues should feel a bit ‘short’ as a rest, but that is part of the workout! Keep the shoulder back on the single arm kb swings, and do not let it internally rotate forward. Remember that single arm swings are only up to eyeball height. Keep the chest up on the lunges and do not push off the legs. Move fast on the bear crawls and use the same lane that you lunged at.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: none
