Hey guys, I scouted this rowing technique video that Mike posted on the CFO blog several weeks ago. It seems pretty good. Now I’ll try to figure out why Ben thinks my rowing technique sucks, even though I can row a 1:25 500M. It is notable that Ben usually points out my deficient rowing technique when I start laughing about his Parkour vaulting technique. CrossFit Marin LUUUVVVV.
Like Coach Mini(um) pointed out, rowing is all about leverage and body angles. It’s physics and geometry. It’s also easy improvements for your workouts if you can iron away some inefficiencies in your technique. We still intend on posting the results for the 5k rowing homework up on the records board, so get to that if you haven’t gotten a chance to. Rich actually got an erg from Lady Santa Clause for X-mas!
A couple of scheduling announcements:
Thurs Dec 31st we will have a regular schedule until 7pm. There will be no self-defense classes Thursday night, but we will have the 5:45pm adult parkour class until 7:15pm. The 6-7pm CrossFit class is also still on.
The gym is closed on Jan 1st, but Nick is planning some crazy team workout that most of us are going to put ourselves through. It will be across the GG bridge and back. Read his blog from a couple of days ago.
Saturday I’m planning a field trip to go climbing at Planite Granite SF. Your hosts will be Johnny Seitz, Ryan Wooley, and Myself. Russ may also help. It will cost roughly $20-$25 to get in and rent equipment. You all know how much I love to climb. I’m excited. Take advantage, because there is going to be some quality instruction and coaching available. We will be meeting in the gym at about 1pm, after Saturday’s trainer’s meeting and we plan on arriving at the climbing gym between 1:30-1:45pm. Call me if you have any questions.
