28 Jan Rowing machine provides incredible functional exercise
If you’re looking for a great way to change up your workout, climb aboard a rowing machine.
Rowing machines are a low-impact exercise that provide a great way to burn lots of calories and build muscle strength.
Simulating the motion of rowing on a boat, a rowing machine is a fun, functional exercise with numerous benefits.
You’ll get a great cardio workout with a rowing machine and burn up to 125 calories in just 15-20 minutes.
There aren’t many exercises that work as many muscle groups as rowing. A rowing machine works a person’s arms, back, shoulders, abs, legs and hips.
Row forward or backward and change up your strokes at different points of the workout.
Rowing machines are fun and effective for people of all ages, but many seniors find them particularly effective because they place little or no strain on the back and joints.
One of the most popular rowing machines available is the LifeCore Fitness R100 Rower (MSRP $1,599.00, AtHomeFitness.com Sale Price $1,299). It’s a Fit Prof Best Buy winner.
It includes a Large LCD “Blue Backlit” Computer Display, 15 Challenging Preset Programs, Adjustable Cooling Air Vent and a Large Ergonomically Designed Seat for Added Comfort.
Whether you go for long rowing sessions, or perform interval training, top-of-the-line rowing machines such as the LifeCore Fitness R100 Rower are surprisingly smooth operators that are easy on the joints and deliver a great workout.
If you take the time to get the proper form down, the rowing machine can help take you to wherever your fitness goals are.
