Rowing Machines

Rowing Machine for Cardiovascular Exercise

According to a recent study in the European Journal of Applied Physiology, the quantity of blood pumped by each heart beat - known as stroke volume - is greater when you workout using a rowing machine, than when you use a treadmill - at least when you exercise at the same intensity. Point is, a rowing machine exercises more muscle groups than a treadmill, and the seated position of a rower improves blood flow and heart efficiency. No wonder there are thousands of people using rowing machines to get fit.

Rowing Machine Exercise Benefits

Unlike other cardio-aerobic workouts such as jogging, cycling or stepping, which mainly work the lower body, a rowing machine works the muscle groups in the back, shoulders, arms and legs - ie. lower and upper body. Also, because rowing is a relatively low weight-bearing exercise routine, it imposes less stress on the body. Yet, due to the physiological dynamics of the movement, most major joints get stretched and extended which improves body flexibility, muscular conditioning and overall fitness.

Rowing Machine and Back Injuries

Before using a rowing machine, anyone with lower back weakness, or who has suffered a lower back injury in the past, should seek advice from a doctor or fitness expert.

Buying a Rowing Machine

If buying rowing apparatus for your home gym, make sure you have enough space. A rowing machine needs a clear working area of about three feet (1 meter) by about seven feet (2.5 meters). Effective rowing machines will provide an even level of resistance throughout the entire movement. The extent of the rowing movement should be big enough to allow a full stretch at the end of the stroke. Foot rests should fit comfortably and be adjustable. A rowing seat should be supportive with a non-slip surface. Price Guide: $250.00-$800.00

Rowing Machine and Weight Control

Rowing Machines improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat tissue, and reduce weight, workouts using Rowing Machines need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
