Why You Should Incorporate Rowing In Your Workout
Rowing has become popular lately with fitness enthusiasts because they are all discovering how simple, effective and amazing this workout can be.
Rowing has some unique advantages over other forms of aerobic training that are often overlooked.
Some benefits of rowing are more muscle mass, greater range of motion, and efficiency.
The advantage of rowing is that more muscle mass is used doing the activity than while running, walking or biking. Your legs, glutes, abdominals, back, shoulders, and arms are all being worked. The actual amount of work being done, and the amount of power being generated, relates to how hard you push yourself.
Unlike many forms of aerobic activity, rowing puts all your major body parts through a large range of movements. In every stroke, rowing requires full compression and full extension of the arms and legs.
Did you know…
-Rowing burns major calories and uses 86% of the muscles in your body?
-30 minutes of rowing can have the same physical impact as 90 minutes of cycling?

50 chest to bar pullups
max effort 500m row
Coaches corner: All 50 pullups your chest should physically touch the bar, use a bigger band if you need too. Esttablish a new 1RM on the front squat. That means as much weight as you possibly do 1 time. The PVC pipe does not count as a set.
UPDATE: The gym will be closed tomorrow at 2:30 for an hour or so while I go to the doctor to check out my head issue. Im working on getting a body, please contact me if you plan on coming in at that time.
I will not be teaching class this Saturday, I am going to the Robb Wold seminar at CF Oakland all day. Casey will be subbing again. Ill be there for the first half of the 7:30 class and some of our seasoned vets will be there so it should go smoothly.
