Three Workout Challenges to Attempt This Month!

Written by Concept2 NZ on June 7th, 2018.

With last Friday marking the end of our ‘Motivation May Free 1-Month Program’ (still available here) it only seemed right to kick off June with a challenge!

Whether May was your first month of rowing, or you having been on the C2 for years, we’ve put together three challenge workouts to test your ability and set a benchmark for progress over the winter!

The below challenges are designed for beginner, intermediate and advanced experience levels which approximately translate to:

Beginner: approximately 1 month of rowing experience. If you are just starting out, try our free 1-month program first!

Intermediate: You row regularly, approximately 2-4 times per week.

Advanced: You row even more often, 4+ times per week.

Select your category and give it a go! If you find it too easy try the next level up!

Note- SPM stands for 'Strokes Per Min'

Beginner

10mins easy warm-up (Stop and stretch at 5min optional)

Set up your monitor for four intervals of: 1 x 250m, 2 x 500m, 1 x 250m

Select 2mins rest between each interval.

250m @32 SPM, take note of your average 500m split at the end of the interval

500m @30 SPM, try to stay within 2 splits of your 250m pace (e.g. 1.55-1.57)

500m @30 SPM, try to repeat the 500m split of your previous 500m interval

250m @32 SPM, try to repeat the 500m split of your first 250m interval

10mins easy warm-down

(Be sure to record your interval splits in Erg Data, Log Card, USB or Log Book)

CSGO is a game where two teams play against each other. You can either play online with players from around the world or play offline with bots. Another option is to play with a LAN network, where a network of computers is physically connected together and you can gather friends to play together in the same place.<br>
