Challenge: Br0din presents Rowvember


Br0din

Recommended Posts

 

It is deemed time to partake in an epic challenge of body and mind.  I have seen Br0's and Swolemaidens struggle and excel at all the glorious feats of strength like squats, deadlifts, snatch, clean and jerks just to name a few.  I've also witnessed the awesomeness of the lifting Br0 with the shrugs, curls, bench press and calf raises.  However, one neglected body part must be given its proper worship.  The back.

In light of this, I declare this month to be Rowvember.  You shall go to your Iron Sanctuary and give worship by doing 10 sets of 10 1 arm rows within 10 minutes.  Make sure you are doing proper 1 arm rows.  This is a great example of a proper row.

You are allowed to use straps.  This was written with the intent you use Dumbbells, but kettlebells are allowed.  If you have an idea for something else, ask for permission first for it to count.  Cable rows are not allowed.  

 

 

As not all worshipers are at the same level of difficulty, so do the level that will challenge you. 

Weights in (m/f)

Beginner  25lbs/ 15lbs and over            +.5 str, +1 wis, +.5 con

Medium 50lbs/ 30lbs and over              +1 str, +1 con

Hard  75lbs/45lbs and over                    +1 str, +1 con, +.5 sta

Nightmare 100lbs/60lbs and over        +2 str, +1.5 con, +.5 sta

 

No one completed nightmare last time, but if someone is worthy.  There is a secret hidden level that's so hard that it scared everyone for reals.

Summary:  1-arm dumbbell row, your difficulty level, 10 reps each side, 10 sets; for time.  Post your glory in this thread.

 

This Challenge will run the entire month of November.

I wanted to have a challenge that can difficult every level lifter and I didn't want to limit awesomeness by not making a hard enough level. So, Nightmare is... tough. And... it leaves something on the table to train for in the future improvement.

This is a good strategy for all.  Start off with an "easy" (for you) weight and then build it up.

Ja. I was tempted to request a lady bug tee ball version, but I think 15 is conservatively light for me. If it's a no-go for now, I'll just have to show up epic next year!

That's better than anyone has done it so far.  but still not good enough for the hidden level.

Finished beginner* 9:38.

 

* 1) I don't do rows. I hate rows with the fire and fury of a thousand suns, though db version is definitely the least objectionable.

 2) I just got new gear that I'm breaking in this week by adjusting PRs

 3) These shenanigans directly followed OHP PR (weight and reps), and deadlift PR yesterday

But rows are so much fun.

Oooh I'm interested! And I love one arm rows :), seeing as I've been having a hard time with barbell rows maybe working one arm at a time some more might do me well :D I will get started as soon as I get back to my regular gym (seeing as my parent's gym doesn't... have free weights :sorrow:)
 

 

Awesome! The more the merrrrrrrier!

Just realized it was the last day so I snuck it in just under the wire! I played it safe on easy with 15... think I could have done 20 or 25, but haven't been training much/hella sick AF so I stuck with it. I don't think 30 would be in the cards, even on my best day. Also as I write this I just realized that I read the instructions wrong, and did EMOM for 10 minutes. Oopsie. well.. technically I did 10 sets in 10 minutes... soo....
