To do it quickly, we can measure opposing ends of the fitness spectrum. On one hand, a 2km row is a measure of aerobic endurance, tending toward muscle stamina a little. On the other, the Clean and Jerk is not a metabolic-dependent lift, but a Central Nervous System-dominant movement. 

Skill plays a role in either, to be sure, but progress over time demonstrates an improved overall fitness level.
