Working out on a rowing machine utilizes all the major muscle groups of the body for a total body-workout in a low-impact way which is less jarring and easier on your joints compared to many other types of exercise.

Rowing effectively engages all the major muscle groups including the back, legs, hips, arms, shoulders, buttocks and abdomen.  As far as your back-health is concerned, rowing is one of the best low-impact exercises you can do to improve and strengthen your back muscles.

Rowing is very effective at burning calories to help you reduce body fat and lose weight.  Depending on the intensity of your rowing activity, men could burn around 196 calories for just a 20 minute workout on a rowing machine while women could burn around 161 calories for the same amount of time.
Besides strengthening and toning the body, exercising on a rowing machine is also one of the best all-round work-outs you can do to help improve your cardiovascular health.  Improving your cardio health by exercising could help to reduce your risk of developing a range of diseases such as heart disease or diabetes.

As you exercise on a rowing machine, your blood flow, circulation and oxygen flow all improve.  This results in better removal of toxins from the body, leaving you healthier and better able to build resistance to disease in general.  You could also see improvements to your breathing and lung capacity thanks to the increased flow of oxygen around the body.

The resulting increased flow of blood and oxygen promoted by rowing exercise also helps to boost the brain and improves your overall mental health and sense of well-being.  Feel-good hormones called Endorphins are triggered as you exercise which also helps to improve your mental well-being as well as helping to promote better sleep and generally helping to put you in a more positive frame of mind overall.

You’ll get the same exercise benefits of rowing indoors on a rowing machine as you would with rowing for real outdoors on water (apart from the fresh air!) but without having to worry about the weather!  Whilst you can’t beat the exhilarating feel of real rowing outdoors in the fresh air, rowing machines are ideal for those days when the weather doesn’t permit you to go outdoors and offer the convenience of exercising in the comfort of your own home any time of day or night.

There are different types of rowing machines on the market today offering different rowing techniques such as pulley or rowing arms so be sure to read the reviews to be sure you’re getting the right one for you and your needs.  Different rowing machines also offer different types of resistance (intensity), effectively mimicking drag.  That is, you can increase (tighten) the resistance or decrease (loosen) the resistance to vary your workout and make it easier or harder as you go along.

Increasing the resistance on a rowing machine will help to increase the rate at which you build muscle.  Alternatively, if your aim is to reach a specific aerobic/cardio level you may prefer to keep the resistance level low and maintain a higher speed rate.


N.B.  It’s advisable to consult your doctor or health care professional before undertaking any new exercise regime.
