Row and Step

Simple workout this evening:

1. Concept 2 Rowing Ergometer: 2 minutes

2. Backpack Step-ups: 2 minutes

1 minute of “rest” in between rounds–essentially the time it took me to get from my “step” back to the rowing machine and squirt a little HEED in my mouth.

The step I use are actually three pallets stacked on top of each other. I have a fourth, but that’s a bit high for step-ups–but perfect for some plyometric jumps at other times. The backpack felt a little light during the first two rounds, so I added 10 pounds–that seemed about right.

I went through eight times for a nice high-intensity workout! As I was “cooling down,” I played a little on my homemade balance board–a nice extra challenge when I’m a little tired.
