I am so happy I found your blog! so I am 5'3'' and 148 lbs and my 2k time is a 2:09 (i know it's bad) i really want to get better for the fall and spring, i don't have easy access to an erg. any suggestions? What split time do you think i should shoot for? Keep up the good work!
Run. I think a great height to weight ratio is important to be as effective a rower as possible & compete with the girls who are blessed with height.
Cross fit can replace your erg for now.
You can look up the insanity workouts; they’ll kick your butt.
Swimming is the best full body workout you can get out there. You can look up actual drill exercises online. Most towns have a public poll for low summer rates so try that.
Good luck this season! Enjoy!
