Sunday, 3rd April 2016
– Doors open at 8:00am
Coming to TRAIN Manchester, on Sunday 3rd April 2016, in collaboration with Concept2. An event which will test all aspects of your rowing ability.
// The Workouts //
The teams at Concept2 and Train Manchester have worked together to devise a set of workouts which will test both your sprint and middle distance ability, along with your recovery!
Workout A: 6 x 2 minute intervals with 1 minute rest per round
Workout B: 1 minute sprint
Workout C: 13 minutes
You will complete all three workouts within a one hour time-slot.The first workout will be done at the start of your hour slot, the second at 30 mins, and the third at 40 mins.
Your overall position will be determined by the total distance rowed across the three workouts, with a ten fold scale applied to workout B. E.g. total distance = A + (B x 10) + C
// The Categories //

Male: Open (over 75kg), Lightweight (under 75kg)
Female: Open (over 61.5kg), Lightweight (under 61.5kg)
