*Partner WOD
10 Rounds for Time

500m Row
40 DB Push Press
Partners can choose how to strategize this workout. Each partner is responsible for 2500m of the Rowing and 200 Push Press. One partner will perform push press while the other is rowing.

In honor of Chris Cornell, who took his own life 1 week ago, please watch his video. I know not everyone likes metal but the words (below the video) are very powerful.

*We are seeing more and more suicides and every one is tragic. I can’t help but think about how surrounded one can be with other people but still feel alone and empty. Our society has not yet learned to embrace the idea of getting help psychologically. We judge, we criticize and we see someone as weak if they get therapy. We have to change that mentality. Not one of us has had a perfect life, and every last one of us has issues we deal with and struggle through. ¬†You are here at NBS for a reason. You need our support and we need you. You don’t have to go through your struggles alone.
Be a good partner today and be a good friend everyday. You don’t know how much your friendship could mean to someone struggling.

RIP Chris

Lyrics

Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row
Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row

Moving is breathing and breathing is life
Stopping is dying
You’ll be alright
Life is a hammer waiting to drop
Drifting the shallows and the rowing won’t stop

Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row
Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row

Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row
Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row

Can’t see the sky, nothing’s on the horizon
Can’t feel my hands and the water keeps risin’
Can’t fall asleep ’cause I wake up dead
I just keep polling, I just keep rowing

Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row
Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row

Rowing is living and living is hard
But living beats losing all that we are
All that we know of, and all that we feel
All we remember, imagine the real
All we remember, imagine the real

Hey

I heard an echo but the answer had changed
From the word I remembered
That I started out sayin’
Living is cheating if you’re not pulling oars
The current is leaving
I’ll get mine
You get yours

Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row
Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row

Hey

Rowing is bleeding, bleeding is breathing
Breathing is feeling, running, and freezing
We’re getting dirty but I started out clean

Keep on rowing and
Keep on rowing and
Keep on polling and
Keep on polling and
Keep on rowing and
Keep on rowing and
Keep on rowing and
Keep on rowing and
Keep on rowing
Keep on rowing

Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row
Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row

Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row
Don’t know where I’m going I just keep on rowing
I just keep on polling, gotta row
