Put your anaerobic and power to the test in this workout that is going to blow your lungs!
Active Man Athlete Lee Phillips has set the 500m row challenge – it is only short, but it is a great way to test you out. Here are a few tips for achieving your best time –
WARM UP –
- Perform a general cardio vascular warm up with stretching and mobility to raise your heart rate and prep your muscles and joints. Pay particular attention to your posterior chain and hamstrings as these are hit hard during the row.
- Then perform 5 x 100m row with 1 min rest between sets. Gradually increase your pace to that which you are looking to hit for your 500m.
- Take 2-3 minutes rest following your final 100m, your then ready for your 500m! Its an all out sprint so hit it hard!
