STIMULUS and GOALS
How to Pace: STEADY! We want a consistent score round to round. Push yourself but don’t blow up!
How it should Feel: MUSCULAR ENDURANCE! This is a classic push/pull workout focused on building upper body pressing capacity. The row will have you out of breath but pressing endurance will be the limiting factor for most!
WORKOUT STRATEGY & FLOW
Floor Press: aim for 1-3 sets here. Don’t use over 60% of 1RM for this workout weight.
Row: focus on long strong pulls when you first get into the rower. Don’t waste time on transitions. Make sure to have your foot straps set so that you don’t have to mess with them.
