About our Rowing Machines
What. A. Workout! We’re huge lovers of rowing machines, and we hope you will be too. Why? Because in one fluid stroke, you effectively recruit 80% of the muscles throughout your body for an exhilarating workout. The result? You can scorch through calories quicker than other exercise machines could ever hope to as well. Train shorter, harder and reach your goals quicker. What more could you ask for?
It must be said, however; if you want to avoid high impact training, then rowing machines won’t be the right fit. Gentle impact alternatives like bikes and cross trainers will suit you better. Conversely, for low back pain, they can be great. Look at our in-depth article below to read more. A lot of us lead hectic lifestyles, and exercise can sometimes be an afterthought. Luckily, it takes no more than 20 minutes to squeeze a sweat-dripping workout in on a rowing machine. Do these 3 times a week complimented with good nutrition and you’ll soon notice the differences. They can be phenomenal after all.
Given the high intensity of rowing machines, they suit performance training for endurance and fitness brilliantly. Every type follows a similar format, but the way the difficulty adjusts varies. This can be via magnetic, water, air or hydraulics. They all make for an incredible workout none the less.
Typically: Magnetic resistance rowing machines tend to suit starters to intermediates nicely, air designs accommodate performance training superbly, hydraulics are a cheap alternative and water models are an all-rounder, with the insanely satisfying swooshing of water reverberating with every stroke. Taking all of that into consideration, however, the exercise is often hard enough on its own without the need for a high level of added resistance. Everyone is different.
