Alternating On the Minute x 30 (15 Rounds):
Even Minutes: 20/15 Calorie Row
Odd Minutes: 10 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″/20″)

This version of “”Fortitude”” is a twist on a CompTrain Benchmark workout
We’ll alternate on the minute between these two movements for 30 minutes, or 15 rounds total
While the workout has a prescribed rep scheme, let’s adjust these numbers to something you are confident you could complete in around 50-55 seconds per movement each round
Your score today will be the lowest rounds of row calories + your lowest round of burpee box jump overs

For Example:

If you complete the 20 calorie row and 10 burpee box jump overs on every round, your score for the day is 30
If you are able to maintain 20 calories on the rower, but drop to 7 burpee box jump overs in one round, your score for the day is 27

Reset your monitor on the rower every round
There is no need to stand to full extension on top of the box
You can face the box or go lateral for the burpee box jump overs
You can jump or step out of the burpee, but must jump up to the box

To get the 20/15 calories done in under a minute, look to hold around 1300/1000 calorie per hour
This gets you the prescribed reps completed with some time to spare for transitions
The first calorie tends to be the toughest, so start each row with a strong and long pull to get the flywheel up to speed quickly
After your big first pull, settle into a smooth stroke rate and find a rhtyhm to your breathing
Keep your stroke rate on the lower side, while focusing on a powerful drive with the legs
Setting the foot straps to something that you don’t have to touch during the workout can be helpful in making these transitions faster

For the burpee box jump overs, let’s find a pace that allows these reps to be completed in around 50 seconds
This works out to about 5 seconds per rep
Using up the majoirty of the minute on both movements helps you sustain your pace throughout the 15 rounds
By getting the work done in this time frame, you pace for the long term and give yourself time to transition back into the rower
You have the option to jump or step out of the burpee, but stepping up can help keep the heart rate a little lower
We’ll feel out a full practice round as our warmup set today to help establish this smooth pace on each movement
After your practice round, take a 3-5 minute rest before beginning the workout
