Rowing Instructor Anna C. warms up for the WOD:
Today started with a team WOD that alternated turns on a the torture device known as the rower or “erg” and multiple bodyweight exercises. Immediately after we were lucky to have Anna Cummins provide a clinic on how to row with proper position, technique, form, and rowing strategy for workouts. Her background is quite impressive as she not only is a CrossFitter (from CF Bellevue) and CrossFit/Concept 2 Master Rower, but also a Gold and Silver Olympic Medal Rower. She spent over an hour with 22 of us demonstrating, drilling, and coaching our group out of our bad habits and turned us into “mini master rowers” that are slightly armed and dangerous now for our next rowing WOD.
Michelle, Rona, Mark and I also learned a lot of good info and valuable cues that will help translate to becoming better coaches for teaching our box. Thanks to all who turned out and more importantly thank you to Anna for the first class clinic! Next summer we will have to take it out on the water.
