Workout 17.2+

250 + T2B

The workout starts on the Rower. Using the single time feature set your rower to count down from 10:00 Minutes. Once you start rowing you must complete 250m before getting off to complete 10 Toes to Bar, that is one round / 260 Reps (250m + 10 T2b). Repeat this couplet as many times as possible until 10 minutes are up. Your score is total reps. Each Meter is one rep and each Toes to Bar is one rep.

It is only necessary to pass each interval of 250m each round, meaning you will get off the rower at 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1250, etc to do your sets of 10 Toes to Bar.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Do I need a Judge? 

Yes, have a competent friend judge your sets of Toes to Bar using the standards above. Judges need to count and make sure each Toes to Bar meets the standard. Also they will need to watch the time if you finish your last round on Toes to Bar, each Toes to Bar counts as 1 rep. The rowers monitor will keep track of the time and meters rowed.

Do my “Rolling” meters count?

Yes, once you pass 250m the rower keeps going, usually an extra 10 – 30m, Those extra meters count towards your next round. For example, if you get off after the first 250m, it might stop at 270. When you get back on row until 500m and each 250m interval from there on (250, 500, 750, 1000 ,1250, etc.)

Will the monitor shut off? 

Only if the Toes to Bar take more than 2 minutes. If this is the case you should change to the scaled category and redo the workout with the scaled movement.
