5k Row

For Time:
5k Row

Midline
100 weighted dead bugs

Tip for the day:
Let's talk about being strong and efficient on every stroke.  Maintain a strong posture throughout the course of the row.  A strong posture on the rower is engaging every stroke by driving the legs down first.  As the legs are close to finishing, then kick the hips open to continue momentum, then the back swing, finally snapping in with the arms to sternum.  Remember, according to Coach Burgener, early arm bend, power ends!  Same applies on the rower.  Maintaining posture creates tension without burning forearms and biceps, allowing the body to suspend off the handle.
