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
