Kiwi Pair Erg Testing–Simply Astounding!

The level of fitness required to row for an hour at sub-1:37 is almost incomprehensible.  This is a short but incredible video of these guys.  To give context to the CrossFitters out there, Eric Murray (in blue) finished the half-marathon test 11 minutes (about 2 miles) faster than Jason Khalipa, who had the fastest time in the Row 2 workout at the CrossFit Games.  Note how Hamish Bond (shirtless with heart rate monitor) is using elongated form to maximize stroke length on the Concept2 Model E (different from in the boat).  Well done Kiwis – no wonder you are untouchable on the water!  I also love the transparency of posting this on the web.
