Which would you do? Rowing question

The computer on the rowing machine where I train is broken. I want to include rowing in my training and WODs. Should I go for time or number of strokes? Say I wanted to do "Jackie" 1000m row, Thruster 45 lbs (50 reps), Pull-ups (30 reps). Would I row for 5 min or do say 200 reps? (I have no idea how many reps are in 1000m). I have done "Jackie" in 8:31 so is 5 min a reasonable 1000m time?

Re: Which would you do? Rowing question

Dan, what's your best 500m row? I suspect you want to be just several seconds above your 500 time half way through. And I'd guess 4 minutes--or even less-- would be closer if your rowing with some intensity than 5 minutes. But it depends, of course, on your rowing technique and experience.

Re: Which would you do? Rowing question

I'm leery of rowing for time, instead of either distance or another measure of actual work. I used a rower without a functional monitor for some time, subbing time for distance ... and now that I've a rower with a functional monitor, it's obvious how much my rowing-for-time stuff was inaccurate.

It's much better than nothing, but it' hard to maintain intensity in rowing-for-time, especially in the later rounds of a WOD. In later rounds, I should have rowed longer ... My experience, anyway.

Re: Which would you do? Rowing question

Thanks guys. I going to go by reps rather than time. It's a more accurate reference point.
