Are you rowing just to get fit? But don't know what to do? This series is for you.
Most of my plans are about performance, but what if you just want to get fit? The 24 workouts in the "Get Fit by Rowing" series are designed to do just that. With a mixture of low intensity, hard rows and max rows, you'll build core fitness and VO2max - both of which are vital.
🚣This first row is 2 x 15 minutes with 1 minute rest at a LOW INTENSITY🚣
In this row, I talk about how to gauge your intensity, and what I'm planning to do over the next 24 workouts. I mention an Intro Video. I haven't made that yet... but I want to get this series started asap. So I'm not going to wait to make the introduction before publishing this.
➔HR Training Zone = Zone 2 (60-70% maxHR)
➔Effort/10 = Low intensity is 5-6/10 (You can hold a conversation)
➔2K Training page - 2K+18-20 (See below for 2K pace info)
❗ If you have a heart rate monitor, and would like to use HR Zones for training, but haven't done a maxHR test, you can use the calculator on my webpage: https://rowalong.com/calculating-maxhr/ A test is more accurate, but this will at least get you going with HR training ❗
