Many CrossFit boxes have winter rowing challenges between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve. My box is no exception. We typically set a goal to reach 100,000 meters per person on the rower, which averages about 2700 meters per day. I’ve seen some people careful plan this out each day with a set number of meters and others who pick a few long days and rowing for a couple of hours at a time. To each his own.
Having done this challenge for two years, I wanted to try something different. So I decided to do 100 miles on the Assault Bike. Other folks are doing a combination and are doing 50,000 meters and 50 miles.
