The Concept2 Workout of the Day (WOD) has been running for nearly 15 years. We started off providing three RowErg WODs (short, medium, long) that were only available on our website. Ten years ago, we added the ability to get the WODs delivered daily to your email, which proved to be really popular. Next, we added three separate WODs for the SkiErg, and then another three separate WODs for the BikeErg. Because of the way the system worked, it also meant that we often had an additional, different WOD again on social media. That’s a lot of WODs! Continue Reading ›

In a boat, the athlete has three points of contact: the seat, foot stretcher, and oar grips. Grips provide feedback to the athlete on technical execution. It is a sensitive connection for the athlete, allowing a “feel” for the water.

Concept2 offers a variety of sweep and scull grips so that athletes can choose materials and diameters that fit them best. This “fit” involves a personal preference: some athletes row very “light in the hands” and feather the blade only in the fingertips. Other athletes prefer a more robust feel to control the oar.

We offer many different materials that range in feel and durability. There is no consensus on a “best” grip material in terms of tackiness, ability to handle certain conditions, or what may be gentlest on skin. Continue Reading ›
