Easy as in straightforward, not easy at all!

Intervals are a great way to boost your metabolism and your fitness in a short period of time. They tend to be favoured (compared to long steady sessions) by a lot of athletes. Well, see what you think…

Choose your rowing machine, take a seat, strap in, let’s go!

2 minutes steady


8x 40 seconds on + 20 seconds off

The ‘on’ is power: Strokes per minute below 25, aiming for a split time of below 2:00. The longest pulls possible, feeling the tension in the chain throughout the whole pull. Keep moving on the off.


2 minutes steady


4x 30 seconds on +30 seconds off

The ‘on’ is 100%. As crazy, fast andΒ intense as you can! Do not hold back! Keep moving on the off.


TABATA!!

8x 20 seconds on + 10 seconds off

The ‘on’ is 200% effort! You go until you have nothing left and then you go some more! You should be panting, after 10 seconds and screaming after 20. The off… yeah, you can rest!


 

THE RESULT: 20 MINUTES OF FUN, SWEAT, A VERY HIGH HEART RATE, A GREAT ENDORPHIN RUSH, SATISFACTION, THE NEED FOR A SHOWER!
