Angela Hart is a Concept2 Master Coach and a CrossFit certified trainer. She talks about excellence in execution on the rower, much like Coach Glassman talks about virtuosity. Unlike common “cardio” machines in which there is a manufactured line of action, there is a huge opportunity for variation on the indoor rower, for both good or bad mechanics.
The monitor doesn’t lie. It tells you exactly what your real output is. The only way to generate impressive numbers is to pull really hard while maintaining efficient and effective mechanics. The harder you pull, the greater the need for excellence in execution.
This footage, produced by the CrossFit Again Faster crew, is from the CrossFit C2 Rowing certification in which both indoor and on-water rowing are covered. Angela speaks about the tendency of CrossFitters to develop on-water proficiency much more quickly than the average population.
