Set interval 1 for 500 meters and the “rest” interval at 2 minute.
Set interval 2 for 2000 meters, the rest time does not matter for this interval.
A 2 Minute interval countdown will start after the 500 meters and you must finish the 30 burpees over the rower before you start the 2000 meters.
Example 1 – If the burpees take you 2:30 it means your 2000 meters will have started with 30 seconds on the clock.
Example 2 – If the burpees take you 1:30 it means you have 30 seconds of rest before the 2000 meters.
Burpee over the Rower: A burpee over the rower starts when your chest and thighs touch the ground. One rep is complete when you jump or step over the rower and both feet touch the ground. Both feet have to touch the ground before you get horizontal (For example you cannot dive over the rower and have your hands or chest touch the ground before your feet do.)
Watch the Video to make sure you set your Monitor up correctly using the Interval Variable feature.
SCORE 3A: 500 meter + 30 burpees over the rower for time
SCORE 3B: 500 meter + 2000 meter time*
*for 3B, if Burpees take longer than 2 mins, the additional time is factored into 2000.
The score from the photo below would be 3A – 4:05.88 / 3B – 10:46.90
You will need a stopwatch for this workout. Start it right before you start the 500m row and stop it right after your 30th burpee over the rower.
You may redo this workout as many times as you like but you cannot combine your ‘best’ 3A score and ‘best’ 3B score. Both scores must come from the same attempt.
Using the below as an example: Score 3A would be what you recorded on the stopwatch – 4:05:88 . Score 3B would be the total time – 10:46.9 (500 meters + 30 burpees over the rower + 2000 meters time) .
You’ll find this screen in the memory section of your PM3, PM4, or PM5 Monitor
