 Optional “Cash Out”: 600m row

‘Cash Out’s are  OPTIONAL workouts that can be completed after class.  If you scaled the metcon back too much, or you just didn’t hit it hard enough for whatever reason, and you have ‘plenty of gas in the tank’, go ahead and rally a group of people people from class to do the cash out (the coach will probably be too busy getting the next class ready so you will be on your own).

These are not for time, and they are only for those who weren’t able to hit full intensity during the metabolic conditioning workout (not for extra punishment because you ate a cupcake last week).
