Rowing Primer by Colby Knepp

Most people loathe rowing.

I LOVE rowing.

Partly because it’s a pretty simple movement, but mostly because rowing is all about work. Similar to pushing a sled, rowing is a test of “How comfortable can I get being really, really uncomfortable?”.

Well, you’re starting off your week of training with a nice 2,000 meter row, followed by 200 double unders and finishing with a 2 mile run. So, in the spirit of making the row suck less, here are some quick tips to consider from William Ibo over at BoxLife Magazine.
