Dirty Dozen

Four rounds for time of:

  • 12 pull ups (do them jumping or with assist if needed)
  • 12 weighted walking lunges
  • 12 dumbbell rows (from the push up position)

This BodyGO Row workout comes courtesy of Concept2 Approved Indoor Rowing Instructor Laurie Miller of CrossFit Wise: Training For Life in St. Louis. Once you’ve warmed up this workout takes only 18 minutes, and can even be cut back to 12 or 15 minutes.

Grab a stopwatch because you will be completing as many as six, 3- minute consecutive intervals of:

  • 30 bicycle abs
  • 15 kettlebell swings

and then row for maximum meters (@ 24-28 spm) until the end of the 3 min interval
Repeat this cycle through the six rounds (or your chosen target)

Record your meters in case monitor shuts down during exercises, or go back into your memory and retrieve them when you’re done.

Row & Go Workouts

Just Row

Row intervals of 1-2-3-3-2-1 mins. (total 6 rounds), with the same amount of rest on each round.

Start each round with a few short strokes to get going and build to your rating. Each piece (interval) should be done at 80 percent of your max: You can talk but you’d rather not. Stroke rating 24-30 strokes per minute.

Use how you feel to determine what stroke rating to hold, your goal is to maintain the same split within about 5 seconds on each round. If you find you can’t talk, you’re going too hard!

Make it easier: Back off on the intensity, or lower your stroke rating
Make it harder: Work to take 5-10 seconds off your split on each round
Total time: 24 minutes plus your warmup
