Laura Gassner Otting is a badass.
She literally wrote the book on becoming limitless (get your own free assessment for having a limitless life here), has been on our podcast, and has shared tips with us on how to have family meetings with heart.
She’s also hella fit and is one heck of a rower. So much so that after our podcast episode with her, we got two of her rowing workouts to try ourselves … and share with you!
And, let’s be clear here. LGO is one fit lady. And these rowing workouts? Well, they are no joke. They are definitely for the seasoned and more advanced rower. So, listen to your body, and, of course, modify as needed and don’t be afraid to take the intensity down a few notches.
Rowing Workout 1: Speed Day
Aim to be as close to your 2k pace as possible.
1250 meters, then 8-minute rest
2 x 750 meters, then 4-minute rest after each set
3 x 250 meters, then 3-minute rest after each set
Rowing Workout 2: Steady State
SPM = strokes per minute
The goal is to nail the transition back to 16 spm and keep the splits the same, so pull press, with fidelity to form.
4 x 20 minutes with 2-minute rest in between sets, complete twice through:
- 4 minutes at 16 spm
- 3 minutes at 18 spm
- 2 minutes at 20 spm
- 1 minute at 22 spm
Thanks for the rowing workouts, LGO! I’m going to have to try this in my garage gym … –Jenn
