WOD Guidance:
Today we have a grippy couplet sandwiched between two long cardio efforts. Because of the demand that the deadlift/toes to bar combination places on our grip, this is a very different workout on the row/ski vs on the bike. There are two ways you could think about this. The first way is to say that choosing to ride the bike allows you to go faster because the bike interferes less with the other movements and makes the workout more elegant. This is absolutely true, but it’s not the stance I would take. I would say that this workout is already grippy, and it’s not meant to be elegant; it’s meant to be a grind where one aspect of your fitness is put to the test. You’re supposed to have trouble holding on to the dumbbells and the rig, and have your forearms on fire when you get back on the row. With that in mind, I’m going to encourage my class athletes to row given the option. We don’t always have to go as fast as possible to get an effective workout. Sometimes we can pick something deliberately that slows us down in order to make us better.
