Short but sweet…Workout of the Evening

The Concept 2 Rowing Ergometer is one of the best pieces of equipment for getting in an intense workout in a short period of time. It’s my go-to gear for when I’m crunched for time. This evening this was my workout:

4 rounds of:

2 minutes on/2 minutes active recovery

1 minute on/1 minute active recovery

30 seconds on/30 seconds of active recover

I know it doesn’t seem like a lot of work, but the idea is to do this at the maximum intensity for the different time intervals. This workout really gives me the opportunity to jack up the power! Obviously, the crux is going from the anaerobic, beast-bursting power of the 30 second interval to the 2 minute interval after only 30 seconds of rest. Again, it doesn’t seem like a lot of volume; but, sometimes you don’t need volume–my legs were trembling when I stood up after the last interval.

Sometimes it’s all about the quality of the effort you can unleash.
