The Perfect Exercise
Rowing has long been recognized as the perfect aerobic pursuit;
"Rowing, indoors or outdoors, at any exercise level of intensity, requires a greater exercise expenditure than any other aerobic activity. Calories are burned in relation to the number of muscles used and the intensity and duration of the exercise. Rowing with a sliding seat uses a very large muscle mass since the upper, lower and trunk muscles are used vigorously”
- Dr. C Everett Koop - Former US Surgeon General
Rowing works 84% of the muscle mass;
More than any other exercise, rowing recruits all major muscle groups.
Maximize Gain, Minimize Time
Rowing can burn in excess of 1000 calories per hour. Importantly rowing does so with a far lower perceived level of exertion than other aerobic exercises.
Rowing moves the joints through a full range of motion and does so with minimal impact and no body weight on the joints. Making it one of the best exercises for joint pain sufferers.
