24.2 Tips and Strategies From Elite Coaches

Moments after 24.2 was announced, coaches Michele Letendre, Justin Cotler, Caroline Lambray, John Singleton, and Cole Sager offered up their preliminary tips. 

What they said: 

Lambray: “This is where preparation pays off. Know your pace for 300 meters [of rowing],” said Lambray, who coaches Jeff Adler, 2023’s Fittest Man on Earth.

In terms of a pacing strategy, she recommends taking your 300-meter row time “and add your deadlift pace, with or without a break depending on how heavy the weight is for you and your strength endurance, and finally add your double-under time [for 50 reps],” she explained. 

From there, add about three to five seconds per round to account for your transition time. This will establish how fast you should aim to hold each round. Then, test this pace before you attempt 24.2.

This pace “needs to feel doable for at least 15 minutes,” Lambray said. “You’ll only want to feel like you need to push [into] the pain cave on the last five minutes.”

Bottom line: Don’t go faster than the pace per round you commit to beforehand. If you do, “you’ll blow up and slow down,” she said.
