It is common to pace yourself or ‘game’ a workout. This is particularly prevalent when the workout involves a run or a row. Athletes will often rest on the run or row in hopes of getting a better overall time. If the workout is deemed a training workout, gaming is not allowed and you are encouraged to perform at maximum intensity the entire time, even if this results in a slightly lower score or longer time. If it is deemed a competition workout, gaming is allowed with the intention of maximizing over all intensity and achieving the best possible score.
