The Original Black C2 – Old School Heavy Metal Ergo
Tonight I wanted to do a WOD in honor of my CrossFit Ignite friend Kung Fu Jim from Generation Kill who is drum teching for Exodus on the Barge to Hell this week.
So I decided to do an 80’s heavy metal WOD:
- Put on a polyester tank, tube socks, and a black bandana.
- Soundtrack: Ronnie James Dio. Ah, memories of high school.
- Jump on the ORIGINAL black Concept2 erg, the Model B (without speed ring), set it to small gear, closed vents (~drag factor 180).
- Do 4 x 2K with 4 minutes rest, targeting 7 minutes pace.
Fun, but a backbreaker – I can’t believe we use to do tests on these things. At least I enjoyed the comfy seat – why they changed that in later models I’ll never know.
