WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Quarantine Quickie
Moving your body well goes a long way in improving the way you feel. We know that a consistent exercise routine not only helps with overall health and longevity, but also improves mood, boosts energy, promotes better sleep, and helps combat disease so you can live your best life.
There is a common flaw among indoor rowers to go hard on the drive and in their effort to recover slowly, inadvertently stop the handle and rest it on the legs, or even pause or stop during the recovery en route to the catch.
I often walk into the gym to get the rowers set up for my class, only to find that many of the dampers are set all the way up to 10.
Here’s a nice little workout of the week! I am naming this Metabolic Magic because it hits two of the things we need to lose fat…a little bit of conditioning as well as building muscle through strength training.
Equipment needed: Wallball, kettle bell, and rowing machine
I am a certified rowing instructor through UCanRow2/Concept2 and since my certification in 2012, along with countless hours of coaching athletes in my CrossFit St. Louis hybrid row class, I like to brag that I can “straighten out anyone’s rowing in 30 min or less”.
This nice little triplet is sure to leave you hurting next time you want to sit up in bed or have to cough!
For this little couplet, all you need is a rower and a set of dumbbells.

Have you ever tried to pat your head and rub your tummy? You have to really think about it to do the movements distinctly.
