The cardio-rower machine was once reserved for professional rowers. But not anymore.
These days, thanks in part to CrossFit, rowing has a moment. Boutique rowing studios thrive and rowing machines are commonplace in many gyms. Each CrossFit box has rows of Concept2 rowers, and rowing competitions are also becoming increasingly popular.
"It's a total body workout where most of your body's muscles are used with every impact with little or no impact," says Lisa Niren, head coach and CITYROW trainer. "It burns fat and ensures extreme cardiovascular fitness and ridiculous muscular endurance."
Compared to other full-body cardio sports – swimming and cross-country skiing – you build more power and power while rowing, says Eric Von Frohlich, CrossFit Level 1 certified trainer and founder of EVF Performance and Row House NYC. "Rowers are usually more muscular than other endurance athletes: back, shoulders and arms are thicker and stronger. A good, powerful rowing stroke resembles a kettlebell swing or a deadlift because the core must be attacked to transfer the power from the legs to the handle. "
Rowing is by nature also a force movement, essentially a mixture of a deadlift and a row of dumbbells. This is an ideal combination that everyone should do by hitting all the back muscles of the muscles that can be easily weakened by sitting in the company of 2019.
Rowing is also easy to program in any workout, as you can get plenty of hustle and bustle in just 10 to 15 minutes and easily work in other work tools by mixing kettlebell turns or similar with other movements to create rounded whole-body routines. Do you need some examples? Take a look at the workouts below.
