    For those wondering why we used the 500m row power output, here is a decent yet somewhat confusing article:
    http://www.concept2.com/us/commercial/crossfit/CFIT_Dec06.pdf
    One watt (W) is the rate at which work is done when an object (m) is moving at one meter per second (s) against a force of one newton (N).
    1W=1(N x m)/s.
    One newton is equal to the amount of force required to give a mass of one kilogram an acceleration of one meter per second squared. 1N=1(kg x m)/s2.
    An equivalent we are more likely familiar with is horsepower. 1HP=745W.
    So, if you can achieve 745W during the 500m row you are a horse.
    The power ratio of Watts divided by bodyweight gives you an idea of your overall pound-for-pound power relative to each other. Two rowers, each with a 400W row, one at 200lbs and the other at 150lbs, will finish at the same time on an indoor rower. However, put both rowers on water where they are forced to pull their own bodyweight, and the 150lb person will finish first–better power to weight ratio (2.66 vs 2.00).
