Rowing for Runners | John Shepherd for Concept2


Are you training for a running event but feeling that the volume necessary to get ready is going to wear your body down? Or, are you looking to find a cross-training regimen that will help you build a stronger body for running?  Rowing is rhythmic, full-body cardio that allows you to work most of the major muscle groups in the body in a low impact manner. For runners, it serves a dual purpose of adding training volume while strengthening the body to resist injury. Check out this article on Rowing for Runners and learn how you can introduce rowing into your weekly training regimen.  ~Mark Sutro, co-founder CRUfit Oakland
