Rowing Is The New Spinning

Die-hard spinners are jumping off their bikes and onto … rowing machines

Rowing just might be the most efficient exercise ever. With each stroke most every part of the body is used. Regular rowing workouts are an ideal way to work toward maximum physical fitness. Using a rowing machine can help to build and tone your muscles, strengthen your cardiovascular function and increase your stamina without pounding the pavement on a grueling, long-distance run. Rowing machines are particularly effective for older fitness enthusiasts because they place no strain on your back and joints.

Weight Loss

Rowing is the perfect activity to keep in shape, lose weight, cross-train for another sport, compete, or recover from an injury or surgery.  Anyone can row at any age despite specific physical challenges because rowing is a low-impact activity. A study has shown that “Competitive rowers expended almost twice the number of calories on a 2,000-meter course as a runner in a 3,000-meter steeplechase.”1 However, since rowing is low impact, you will not experience the same wear and tear on your body that you would if you were a runner. Plus, you build strength in your upper body and core.

Cardiovascular Benefits

Using a rowing machine is an endurance exercise that increases heart function and uses carbohydrates to provide the energy required to exercise. Keeping the rowing machine tension at a low level allows you to maintain a high rate of speed with little resistance in order to reach and maintain an aerobic state. Aerobic exercise improves lung, heart and circulation systems and is the cornerstone of an effective exercise routine.

Muscle Toning

Rowing uses virtually every major muscle group in your body. With little pressure on the joints, due to the activity's low-impact nature, rowers work their legs, hips and buttocks with each stroke. They also use upper-body muscles, strengthening the back, shoulders and arms. The trunk and core are engaged in the exercise as the rower performs each stroke. You can adjust most rowing machines to create a tighter resistance to increase the rate at which you build muscle.

5 Reasons to Row:

  1. Effective aerobic workout: Because it requires the use of so many major muscle groups, a rowing machine is an effective way to raise your heart rate and increase your oxygen uptake. The adjustable resistance on most rowers lets you easily work up to your target heart rate as well as slow back down to your resting rate.

  2. Efficient calorie burning: A rowing-machine workout burns an average of 600 calories an hour. That's more efficient than many other home gym machines on the market. On a stationary bike without arm involvement, you'd need to ride about an hour and 18 minutes to equal an hour workout on a rowing machine.

  3. Conditioning for the upper body:  Rowing involves the rhomboids in the shoulder, trapezius in the upper back and lats in the lower back. Your biceps, pecs, and abs also do some work, although to a lesser extent. Maintaining a strong grip on the oars, you'll also develop stronger hands and wrists.

  4. Conditioning for the lower body: One of the top benefits of rowing machines is the workout they give the lower body. In fact, rowing enthusiasts consider rowing primarily a lower-body workout. The main leg muscles involved are the quads in the upper front of the thighs, but the calves and glutes (buttocks) are also involved.

  5. Low risk of injury: Rowing is good for any age group because the motion of rowing is natural and low impact, putting minimal stress on the joints. Because you're seated low to the ground, there's even less risk of falling than with a stationary bike. While back strain is a concern, you can minimize the risk of back strain by using correct rowing form. Proper rowing posture lets your legs do the work, taking the pressure off your back.

 

The H2O Fitness RX-950 Club Series ProRower exercises all major muscle groups uniformly, making it the most efficient aerobic workout available.
The WaterRower's fluid, even stroke is superior in its natural replication of on-water rowing, eliminating the unpleasant mechanical fatigue associated with conventional rowing machines.
Other common aerobic exercise equipment such as treadmills, cycles, and ellipticals use considerably less muscle mass, burn fewer calories and generate less exercise benefit.
  • Burn in excess of 1,000 calories per hour
  • Work 84% of your muscle mass
  • Target core muscles and strengthen posture, helping to reduce back ailments
  • Work joints through a full range of motion, improving joint health an flexibility
  • Seated, non-load-bearing and low impact; rowing removes stress on the injury-prone joints of the ankles, knees and hips

Athletes and those seeking a healthy lifestyle have long been using the  H2O Fitness RX-950 Club Series ProRower as part of their training and general fitness routines. The H2O Fitness RX-950 Club Series ProRower works by fatiguing the user purely aerobically. Rowing with a sliding seat uses a very large muscle mass as the upper, lower and trunk muscles are used vigorously. One of the main advantages of rowing is that the sitting position removes the user’s body weight from the injury-prone hip, knee, and ankle joints – therefore reducing the potential of impact injury to these joints. Rowers respond to the work applied, allowing constant effort through the whole stroke - unlike resistance based machines where effort is high at the beginning of the stroke and fades as the resistance is overcome. Calories are burned in relation to the number of muscles used and the intensity and duration of the exercise.

No other exercise equipment burns tones, and works the body as effectively as the H2O Fitness RX-950 Club Series ProRower Rowing, like other endurance based aerobic activities such as swimming and cycling, has long been recognized as the most complete aerobic exercise. It is a non-impact workout and is naturally smooth and flowing. With the H2O Fitness RX-950 Club Series ProRower , you work 84% of your entire mucle mass – more than any other exercise.

H20 Fitness Seattle Wooden Rower is the perfect all in one exercise machine

   

As with all H20 Fitness rowers, you can expect a lifelike rowing experience – not only in terms of feel but also in sound – which is achieved through the innovative Hydro-Power Drive system, polycarbonate water tank and internal paddle system which sits at your feet.

When you are rowing in a boat on a lake, the water acts as the main resistance system; H20 have done their best to mimic this, thanks to the polycarbonate tank, which holds 2.5 – 4.5 gallons of water.

Adjusting the level of resistance could not be any easier – add more water to the tank for more resistance, and vice versa. If you want a more intense workout, simply row faster; if you want a more relaxing workout, simply row slower. This may seem basic, but all you need to know is that this system works very effectively, and works better than a mechanical system, as the water’s natural adaptive resistance system provides all the pushback you need.
