''Red Dawn'' (10.18.2010)

Warm-up Drills (10.18.2010)
Row 1000m (See Notes)
3 Rounds of
12 x Push-ups
12 x Air Squats
9 x Deadhang Pull-ups (Supinated)
-Samson Stretch
-Sumo Squats
-Shoulder Opening Drill (wall)

Notes: For the Rowing portion of the Warm-up Drills use a damper setting of 1. Rowing with the damper setting this low will make each pull feel like it provides far less resistance (Remember to take note of how much wattage you are producing during the first 20 pulls or so).
Athletes attempting to compensate for the likely degradation of pace/time will usually begin increasing their number of strokes per minute. Raising the number of strokes per minute will NOT yield a better performance, emphasizing the following will:
While remaining focused on ideal/proper Rowing mechanics attempt to dramatically slow the speed of each stroke's ''recovery'' phase (return towards the flywheel).
The drive and recovery speeds should be as consistent as possible from stroke to stroke. Maintaining this consistency is as simple as applying the following points of performance. The chain should remain taught during the entire pull and recovery; slack in the line, slapping, and other irregular motion should be interpreted as too much speed on the return.
Hint: Keep the following thought on a repeating loop in your brain during the warm-up, ''About 1 second on the way out and 2 seconds on the way back in''.

Clearly no tires to flip down here at the Rec Center, so I did some heavy KB Swings instead.
