Scaling Guide: Men: 3:30 – 4:30, Ladies: 4:00 – 5:00.  Log combined row times only, not the rests in this case.

Coaching Tips: Go hard on the first round, but it isn’t the best idea to go all out. Aim for 90-95% intensity. Hit the 400 with all you got, then just try to hang on for the final 300. Doing 2-3 short, fast, pulls at the start of each interval will help get the flywheel back up to speed and can knock seconds off of each interval.

Two people can easily share a rower as long as they can do the 500 and the 400 in 1:30-1:50 min range (less than 2 minutes for the transition time to get on and off the rower). The potentially faster rower should go second.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 15 wallball shots, 200m run with medicine ball, 15 burpees
