Angela Hart is a Concept2 Master Coach and a CrossFit certified trainer. She explains her rowing strategy for Fight Gone Bad. The goal is to row as many calories as possible in one minute. She suggests mixing in half and three quarter strokes with full strokes. Not only does it help psychologically get through the minute, there’s a physical boost to power output with the partial strokes.
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.
In the video, Angela also demonstrates her technique. She pulls 23 calories, which is a bit short of her “standard” 27 calories. Not too shabby.
