Why rowing is the best exerciseGentle yet effective
- Rowing, unlike popular aerobic exercies such as running, cycling and climbing is full bodied exercise, recruiting all major muscle groups uniformly. Using a large number of muscles in this way increases the exercise benefit derived within the time available.
- Other so-called whole-bodied exercises, such as swimming and cross country skiing work the muscle groups independently allowing the muscle groups to fatigue at different rates, under utilising key muscle groups and reducing the exercise benefits derived.
- Rowing utilises the major muscle groups sequentially, recruiting the static muscles of the torso in unison with the dynamic muscles of the legs, shoulders and arms.
- Rowing blends the tranquility of moving water and the rhythm of motion into a naturally pleasurable activity, invigorating the body, while relaxing the mind.
- Rowing is quite removed from the grimacing, no pain, no gain, sweating blood school of exercise. Even at its highest levels, training for rowing involves moderate intensities, longer durations and dedication sustained by the sheer pleasure of the sport.
- You find yourself actually looking forward to the next session
- Non-weight bearing and gentle on the joints – no jarring, just smooth and efficient, rhythmic exercise.
