1,000m row
Rest four minutes

The trick here is that I tried to maintain a 4:00 pace (2:00 split) for every row.

The first row was easy. The second was meh. The third was uncomfortable. The fourth was unpleasant. The fifth was murder.

By the last row, I had started opening my shoulders more and leaning back a bit. That brought my abs into it, which is interesting. You end up leaned back, like a hollow rock/hold. That’s a little harder, but I feel you get a couple extra inches out of every pull.

I did maintain pace for all five rows. Due to vagaries in the clock, I measured it by average 500m split time, trying to keep that under 2:00.
