Coaching Tips: Choose a clean load that you will have to break up on the second round by the latest. The goal is to start the push-ups around the 60 second mark, and finish them no later than the 120 second mark. If you hit the second minute and you haven’t finished push-ups, go to the rower anyways and subtract one calorie for each unfinished push-up at the end of the workout. Keep the push-ups ‘legit’ and don’t let yourself start worming. Start each row off with a couple short pulls to get the flywheel up to speed, and then row hard because of the 2-minute rest. Adjust the load (of the barbell for cleans) during the rests if necessary!
Rowing sub: 2 muscle cleans (65/95lb or about 50% of max), 2 burpees = 4 cal
