Endurance is one of the 10 physical skills we seek to develop in our CrossFit training. Endurance is simply our ability's ability to use oxygen. Most of use think of endurance as long slow distance training. Most folks who don't do CrossFit think of endurance as fitness. It's an important component of fitness, but it's not the sole indicator of fitness.
Today we are working on our endurance with a long row. Today's performance tip is how to breath better while rowing. Breathing is something we do naturally, and we can improve it with some practice.
