    Default Rowing on off days

    Do you have any programming recommendations for using a rowing machine for 30 minutes or so on off days?

    (Mainly looking at improving stamina & recovery without interfering with strength training too much.)

    Sounds like you're asking a general fitness question and not a competitive sport question. Assuming so: are you done with your LP yet?

    Yes itís not for competitive sport.
    Iím in the last 2 or 3 weeks of LP. Iím not planning on rowing on off days just yet, itís something I plan on doing in the coming months for general fitness.

    OK, assuming you know how to row properly*: When you finish your LP, start rowing using the principles outlined in this article: Death by Prowler | Matt Reynolds
    Rowing isn't exactly the same as the sled, but the energy systems are universal to humanity and you'll use those ideas to program your work on the rower.

    If you don't know the rowing technique, learn it first. Don't assume you can do it right, because you can't and won't, and it'll make a huge difference in the long run to your conditioning work on the rower. Concept 2 has some decent technique videos to watch.
