Have 10-pound weights handy.
Row, keeping a steady, strong pace, 500 meters.
Do front-lunge pass-throughs. Stand next to rowing machine, a dumbbell in one hand. Do a forward lunge, passing weight from one hand to another through front leg with each rep, alternating legs for 1 minute.
Rest 15 seconds.
Row, picking up speed. Push hard against foot pedals, 500 meters.
Do Russian twists. Sit on floor, leaning back with abs engaged, knees bent and raised in V-sit position, holding a dumbbell in front of chest. Twist torso to tap weight to floor on right side, then left, for 1 rep. Do 5 reps, then hold a right-side plank for 10 seconds. Do 5 more twists, then hold left-side plank. Repeat for 1 minute.
Rest 15 seconds.
Row as fast as you can, 500 meters.
Do dumbbell thrusters. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing in and elbows bent so hands are at shoulders. Squat, then press weights overhead as you stand. Repeat for 1 minute.
Rest 15 seconds.
Repeat circuit 4 times. With each additional round, aim to finish the row a few seconds sooner and do 1 to 2 more reps per move.
