Let’s talk workout prep! What’s your typical workout warm up?
If you’re like most people, you spend less than 5 minutes doing something where you’re randomly moving, probably paying more attention to the TV, a magazine, or your friend on the machine next to you than you are actually preparing for your workout.
Don’t waste the warmup! It’s super important, both physically and mentally. Try these and get ready to go fast!
A longer row machine workout could be the key to helping you build your endurance and crush your next hike, long bike ride or day out with your children or grandchildren. Not to mention helping build the engine you’ll need for your next 2K. We call these the workouts that rowers love to hate.
Fathers get no respect when it comes to their special day.
Tools and ties, yes. But do a keyword search for “Father’s Day workout” and the term isn’t even searched enough to rank as something that’s highly sought after. Never mind a father’s day workout on the rowing machine, which we think is the best kind of workout for dads, obvi.
We’re here to change that.
We put our heads together with our certified instructors and came up with 4 brand new rowing workouts (or SkiErg or BikeErg) …
What’s better than a new St. Patrick’s Day playlist? How about two! One for all-purpose rowing and workouts, another for rowing intervals. Erin go row!
Thought for the day: Want to get noticed? Make sure you stand out.
If you have 15 minutes (plus a few more to warm up), you have time to work out! This interval workout will do the trick.
Need a new interval workout for your Concept2 rower? Do this one with just the rower, or combine it with the SkiErg or BikeErg, it’s up to you. Add some off-erg weight work and you’ll be feeling fitter in no time.
When was the last time you took a rest day or an even longer break from your workouts or your regular routine in another way? Like the kind where you literally DO NOTHING, and you planned it that way. If your answer is “Uhhh, I don’t remember my last rest day,” or “training breaks are for wusses,” this is your invitation to rethink that. Here are 3 good reasons why you should take a look at it.

Need a Fourth of July workout? Try these. Plenty of meters, but you’ll also get in and out fast, and sweaty. Here we offer you two versions, pick the one that best fits your fitness level and how hard you want to work. And, in the spirit of independence, you can choose whether you want to do this on the rowing machine, SkiErg or BikeErg (double the meters if you choose the BikeErg).
If you’re doing this outside of the 4th of July …
Try this interval workout of the day on your own or in a group. Pick whatever kind of weight you want to use on the weighted portion of the workout (the cleans, squats and presses). You can use kettlebells, dumbbells, bars, milk jugs, cement blocks, or nothing at all.
Remember that our muscles don’t have eyes or egos, they only care about being challenged. Pick up the weight that challenges you but also allows you to do the move correctly.
Never sacrifice form for the sake …
