Rowing is a serious up-and-coming workout in the fitness community. It is a fun and effective way to sweat with little impact.
You've probably noticed some rowing machines at your gym or box before or taken some fitness classes that incorporate rowing into the workout. Familiar or otherwise, here are five fun facts you may not have known about rowing!
YOU DON’T NEED H20 TO ROW
Rowing indoors in a group setting gives you that exhilarating feeling of rowing in sync to the hum of the erg - plus you don’t have to worry about rain or snow!
ROWING IS A FULL BODY WORK OUT
You’re mostly working your legs, core and back. With every stroke, each muscle will be engaged, from head to toe.
FORM IS EVERYTHING
Getting the most out of your rowing workout is all about technique. Make sure you’re sitting up straight, using your legs for power.
POWER = DISTANCE
The more power from your leg drive, the further you’ll see yourself go - it’s a more efficient way to row!
ANYONE CAN ROW!
Any fitness professional will tell you, rowing is made for everyone! .
