The Best 2K Workout at Strong Steady State

The universal 2,000 meter erg metric is how coaches (and rowers) measure fitness levels of rowing, ages, gender, etc…. Whether it is to figure out a fitness baseline, or where the rower might be best in the boat lineup, or for recruiting purposes, it tells a lot.

There are many ways to train for it, and here is one. I like it because it mentally puts one in a 2k countdown scenario wand forces one to go faster throughout the piece.

6 x 2K
2 min Rest
effort: strong steady state
1st 500 at 18 (2k +18), 2nd 500 at 20 (2k +16), 3rd 500 at 22 (+14), 4th 500 at 24 (+12)

happy #rowing #rowindoors
