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?
